The future belongs to electric cars, whether we like it or not. And brands like Rimac are willing to demonstrate it from the most passionate spectrum of the automobile, that of hypercars. Accustomed to high-flying internal combustion vehicles, Rimac offers an exciting zero-emission proposal. The Rimac Fridge It has four electric motors – one per wheel – and a total power of 1,914 CV. This hypercar encrypts its 0 to 96 km/h in just 1.85 seconds. And he has decided to prove it using a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ as a guinea pig.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is a high-flying supercar. Its engine is a naturally aspirated 6.5 V12 with 770 hp, transmitted to all four wheels through a permanent all-wheel drive system and a seven-speed automatic gearbox. It is capable of doing 0 to 100 km/h in a dizzying 2.8 seconds., and reach a top speed of 350 km/h. It is the most performance and radical car developed by Lamborghini in recent years, and it is objectively wild. And yet it is a toy car next to Rimac.
The Rimac Nevera costs 2 million euros. Next to it, the Lamborghini is a “trinket”.
Chris Harris has tested the Rimac Refrigerator for Top Gear, and the first proof of its absurd performance is that he compares the acceleration of the car with an “out-of-body experience”. Its torque is 2,360 Nm and its top speed is a dizzying 412 km/h – a figure beyond the reach of virtually any internal combustion vehicle. But the ultimate test is the drag race with which he wants to put the Rimac’s performance into context. A race in which the result is an absolutely humiliated Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
As soon as the race begins, the Lamborghini begins to appear in the rear-view mirror, and as the race progresses, the difference in distance with the Rimac is greater and greater – unlike other electric cars, the Refrigerator does not lose bellows as the speed increases. If you think that everything I say is impossible, take a look at the video that we include on these lines. And if you want to know everything about the Rimac Refrigerator, I advise you to read the article that we published a few months ago, in which we analyzed it in depth.
