The Rimac Nevera, known for its blazing speed, adds another feather to its cap by setting a remarkable reverse top speed record. This electric supercar has been consistently pushing boundaries, and its latest achievement has secured its place in the Guinness Book Of World Records.
- Rimac Nevera, previously known for its impressive forward speed, has now set a reverse top speed record.
- The electric vehicle company has been on a record-breaking spree, including setting lap records at the Nurburgring and the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
- The Rimac Nevera achieved a remarkable reverse top speed of 171.34 mph, proving its exceptional performance capabilities.
In the world of high-performance electric vehicles, Rimac Automobili has once again proven its dominance by achieving a remarkable reverse top speed record with the Rimac Nevera. After previously setting the record for the fastest-production EV in the world, Rimac continues to push the envelope when it comes to electric vehicle performance.
This latest achievement took place on October 7, 2023, at the Automotive Testing Papenburg facility in Germany. Croatian driver Goran Drndak took the wheel of a Rimac Nevera adorned in its recognizable Time Attack Edition livery, and with the world watching, he achieved a record-setting reverse top speed of 171.34 mph. To add to the credibility of this impressive feat, a representative from Guinness World Records was present to authenticate the results.
The idea of attempting a reverse top speed record was born during the early stages of the Rimac Nevera’s development. Simulations indicated that the car had the potential to reach speeds exceeding 150 mph in reverse, but there were concerns about how the car’s aerodynamics would react to such speeds. However, Rimac’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of electric vehicle performance led them to pursue this ambitious goal.
This achievement adds yet another accolade to Rimac’s growing list of records and accomplishments. The Rimac Nevera has already proven its prowess on the track by setting a new production EV lap record on the Nurburgring, surpassing Tesla’s record by an impressive 20-second margin. Additionally, it showcased its speed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s timed Supercar Shootout and broke 23 records in a single day, including a sprint from 0 to 249 mph in just 21.32 seconds.
In conclusion, the Rimac Nevera’s reverse top speed record is a testament to the electric car company’s relentless pursuit of excellence in performance and innovation. As they continue to redefine what electric vehicles can achieve, the Rimac Nevera remains a force to be reckoned with in the world of high-performance EVs.
Let’s take a moment to hear from the test pilot about the unique high-speed run of the Rimac Nevera:
“On the run itself, it definitely took some getting used to. You’re facing straight out backwards watching the scenery flash away from you faster and faster, feeling your neck pulled forwards in almost the same sensation you would normally get under heavy braking. You’re moving the steering wheel so gently, careful not to upset the balance, watching for your course and your braking point out the rear-view mirror, all the while keeping an eye on the speed. Despite it being almost completely unnatural to way the car was engineered, Nevera breezed through yet another record.”
