Watch This Croatian Rimac Concept_One Beat A Tesla And A LaFerrari In A Quarter-mile Drag

This Croatian Startup – Rimac Concept_One just beat the Bumm out of a Tesla P90D and LaFerrari. Below is the video that shows how it decimates the 2 most powerful production cars in the market.

British racing driver and YouTuber Archie Hamilton, drove both the Tesla and the Ferrari in this video. He was certain that the Ferrari would win however, he was proven wrong!

What the CEO of Remac has to say about it:

While other electric cars have great performance off the line, they quickly loose their breath as speed increases. Also, most other electric cars tend to overheat after a couple of hard acceleration runs. We have three “secret weapons” to battle the Achilles’ heels of electric cars when it comes to performance. Just between you and me, I’ll whisper a bit about those secrets:

1. Tons of power and torque.
With four motors outputting 1.600 Nm at almost 0 speed and well over 1.000 hp, the Concept_One has enough torque and power to keep its tires busy even at high speeds.

2. Cooling.
The Concept_One has seven independent cooling systems and several smaller sub-systems. We have worked really hard to maximize the performance for track use and not just for a couple of acceleration runs.

3. Gearbox.
Each of the four motors is connected to an independent gearbox. While the front motors have single-ratio reduction gearboxes, each rear motor has its own two-speed dual-carbon-clutch gearbox. This helps us to have great acceleration while also having a very high top speed. Most importantly, it allows the Concept_One to accelerate very quickly even at high speeds
