New $1 Million Dollar Electric Car

A new electric super car is on the drawing board – the Concept_One from Croatian automaker Rimac Automobili. It makes Tesla’s current offerings look about as fast as a fully loaded school bus. The Concept_One accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. It reaches 120 mph in 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 221 mph. It takes the 2016 Tesla P90D Ludicrous a full 4.0 seconds to go zero to 60. That is not much better than the ubiquitous Ford Mustang GT (about .5 seconds faster). Now, the car is not just fast, it also boasts high quality. In fact, no parts in the interior are made of plastic which is different from just about every car on the road today. Rimac instead wanted to use only carbon, aluminum or alcantara, a high-end fabric found in yachts and Formula 1 cars for the construction of the Concept_One. Rimac describes it as the super car of the 21st century. Sorry Ferrari, the V12 has had it’s time. Pretty soon there will not be any dinosaur juice left to fuel its twelve thirsty cylinders anyway. The Concept_One does not have that problem. It does not need 12 pistons screaming at 8,000 RPM to produce the 1,000 horsepower required to go zero to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. Instead, all it needs are some magnets, copper wire, and a lot of electrons. There is one thing howerver that the Concept_One has in common with the top offerings from Ferrari and all of the other current super car builders – price. The Concept_One will have a price tag of $933,000 before taxes. Additionally, Rimac plans to only produce eight cars, so it’s time to leave the office a little bit later and get that promotion before it’s too late to purchase one of these awesome cars.
