The Concept-One retains the looks of the car first seen at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. TheAngular headlamps and taillamps are still around as is the smiling front fascia.

The Concept-one is powered by four permanent magnet oil-cooled motors that combine together to produce 1073bhp and 1600Nm of torque. This enough to send the Concept-One screaming from standstill all the way to 100km/h in 2.6 seconds, 200km/h in 6.2 seconds and 300km/h in just 14.2 seconds. The Concept-One maxxes out at 355km/h.

The Concept is brought to a halt using carbon cermaic disc brakes that can bring the car to a halt from 100km/h in just 31.5 meters.

To control all this power and torque, Rimac uses all-wheel torque vectoring to regulate the amount of power sent to each wheel. Each wheel has its own transmisiion, the front wheels have single speed gearboxes, while the rears have dual-clutch 2-speed gearboxes.

Rimac is only building eight examples of the Concept one and each car retails at £676,000 and six have already been sold.
