In 2021, Rimac finally brought to light the Navara, the result of several years of development in the quest to achieve the ultimate electric hypercar. And as soon as it was released it destroyed some of the figures set by Tesla and its fierce Model S. In this 2023, it breaks all the records it lacked.

Only 150 lucky people will get to know what it feels like to drive a car that has changed the parameters of what is possible in the world of hypercars.
The refrigerator is powered by four electric motors that add up to 1,917 HP and 2,960 Nm of torque, which are powered by a 120 kWh battery. To manage power, the Navara employs a four-wheel torque vectoring system with predictive and responsive programs that can calibrate the amount of torque at each wheel individually.
It has a carbon fiber body, massive Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, a Regen system with up to 300 kW, seven drive modes and more.
The Croatian firm’s team is heading to the Papenburg (ATP) test track in Germany, an ideal location for the activity due to its four-kilometre straight line. To monitor the activity and support it as an actual record, Rimac called on Davesoft and RaceLogic, who provided all of their telemetry devices.
All records were achieved using Michelin Cup 2R tires on unprepared asphalt (surface, as it were) and acceleration tests were performed from scratch with a single start, without rolling starts or other tricks.
At the wheel was Goran Drundak, a professional test driver.
Not only did the refrigerator destroy the legendary 0-400-0 (km/h) record that all supercar makers aspire to conquer. In addition, it is the fastest electric production car and has broken the most records in a single day.
The words of Mate Rimeck, CEO of the company bearing his last name, are conclusive: “As I grew up, I always looked down on the cars that made history by stepping up the rod in terms of performance, always hoping for the technology revolution that would come.” cars can bring to the road. This is what drives me from day one to develop new technology that redefines the possible. Today, I’m proud to say that the car we’ve built 400 km/h and back to 0 in less time than it takes the McLaren F1 to reach 350 km/h, and not only that, because the car can do it over and over again, all other current Can break performance records. Refrigerator and reach a track, you can do it too.”
