1,888bhp, 2,360Nm of torque. The specs on the Rimac Nevera are the stuff of dreams, but you can never drive it here.
The Rimac Nevera, a lightning bolt on wheels, has just stormed onto the scene in Singapore. This is not your average electric car; this is the apex predator of the EV world, and it's left a trail of awe-struck enthusiasts in its wake.
The Nevera isn't just an electric car; it's a symphony of raw power and precision. It's a beast propelled by four electric motors, one nestled at each wheel. A symphony of electrified engineering, you might say.
The result? An earth-shattering 1,888hp and a jaw-dropping 2,360Nm of torque. These numbers aren't for the faint-hearted; they're for those who crave sheer unadulterated speed.
From a standstill to 100 km/h in a mere 1.81 seconds - this is the stuff of dreams. And for those who need more, zero to 200 km/h is a blink-and-you-miss-it 9.22 seconds. With enough open road, it'll conquer 412 km/h, making it one of the fastest machines to roam asphalt.
But it's not just about power; it's about control. Four motors mean the Nevera can dance through corners with grace, thanks to Rimac's All-Wheel Torque Vectoring system. This is a car that doesn't just move; it choreographs a ballet on the road, optimising traction and performance with every twist and turn.
Now, let's talk about the heart of this electric storm - the 120 kWh battery that fuels this symphony of speed. It's a powerhouse that can go from empty to 80% charge in a jaw-dropping 19 minutes. If the Nevera was an athlete, it would be a sprinter with the lungs of a marathon runner.
And why the name Nevera, you ask? It's named after a Mediterranean storm, one that forms unexpectedly, charges the atmosphere with lightning, and then vanishes, leaving tranquillity in its wake. An electric storm - a fitting analogy for a car that awakens a tempest of emotions and quietly leaves you breathless.
But there's a catch. If you're in Singapore, you're going to have to wait for your date with the Nevera. The first-year allocation is gone, and the line of eager enthusiasts is growing. And that price tag? Well, it's not for the faint of heart either, sitting at a cool €2 million. But those who understand what the Nevera represents know it's worth every cent.
Oh, and one more thing - it's left-hand drive only. So, this is one storm that Singaporeans will admire from afar.
