Hypercar Rimac Nevera blows away Ferrari SF90 Stradale on drag race

Ferrari SF90 Stradale is not a slow universal car, but compared to Rimac Nevera it is as if “standing still” on a drag race.

Although it has only been officially launched for a day or two, Rimac Nevera has quickly established itself as the new peak performance hypercar. Its all-electric powertrain can produce 1,914 horsepower to all four wheels, and a new video from the YouTube channel “carwow” shows how quickly it blasts the Ferrari SF90 Stradale on the drag track. Of course, this is a lame match because Ferrari’s hybrid setup can’t match the Rimac’s pure electric powertrain.

That is not to say that the SF90 Stradale is a slow car when it is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and an electric motor that produces a total capacity of 1,000 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. Combined AWD drivetrain. As announced by the manufacturer, Nevera has a capacity of 1,914 hp and 2,360 Nm of maximum torque, so that it can accelerate from 0-96 km / h in 1.85 seconds. Even though the Nevera is 380 kg heavier than the Italian supercar, this does not help the Ferrari car.

The performance difference between the two cars is immediately apparent on the drag track, with the Croatian hypercar winning in every situation. Nevera can even win as soon as the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is “cheated” to start. Matt Watson, the main lead of “carwow”, clocked the mile (402 meters) in 8.62 seconds at an impressive 276.47 km. Meanwhile, the Ferrari’s fastest time was in the second race, completing a quarter of a mile in 9.6 seconds at 239.55 km/h.

The Rimac Nevera is the final production-ready version of the C_Two concept the company introduced more than three years ago. Since then, the Croatian company has refined the design, resulting in a 34% increase in aerodynamic efficiency. The design change also allows for better cooling of the powertrain and brakes, increasing by 30% at low speeds and 7% at high speeds. This electric hypercar model takes only 9.3 seconds to accelerate from 0-300 km / h, and can reach a maximum speed of 412 km / h. Rimac will produce only 150 Nevera units, each priced at €2 million.
