Race: Rimac Nevera beats aerobatic plane

Race: Rimac Nevera beats aerobatic plane 1

Rimac Automobili has presented another test of its 1914-horsepower electric hypercar Nevera, which this time had to participate in the race in a straight line. However, it seems that there were no worthy rivals among cars for an electric car, so the company chose a competitor from the world of aviation and brought a hypercar with an aerobatic aircraft. A Rimac factory test driver got behind the wheel of the Never, and a professional pilot turned out to be at the helm of the aircraft.

On the runway of a small airfield in Croatia, Rimac’s chief test driver for testing and development, Miroslav Zrncevic, received a pre-production 1914-horsepower electric car at his disposal. From a standstill to 100 kilometers per hour, the Rimac Nevera can accelerate in 1.85 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 8.582 seconds.

Another participant in the race was an aerobatic plane and Slovenian pilot Peter Podlunshek, who has been engaged in aerobatics since 1994 and during this time has won eight national aerobatics championships, as well as participated in the Red Bull Air Race world championships.

To complicate the task, the plane went into the race upside down, but this did not prevent the real ACE from flying the specified distance. Another thing is that the airplane for aerobatics could not oppose anything to an electric hypercar.
