If you've never heard of Rimac, then you're not alone. The Croatian electric hypercar company makes the Nevera, powered by four individual electric motors (one at each wheel) for a grand total of 1,914 horsepower and 1,741 lb-ft. of torque. This allows the car to hurtle to 60 mph in 1.74 seconds (considerably quicker than the car's stated 1.85-second sprint). This was one of the 23 records the car recently set in Germany at the Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP) facility.

The car used for the test runs where shod with street-legal Michelin Cup 2 R tires, as opposed to dedicated track tires. Other detail include the fact that the car was given a one-foot rollout, so acceleration was not from a dead stop. The track was also not treated for the runs, so it was a standard track setup for the 2.49-mile ATP facility.

One of the most important records set was 0-to 249 mph and back-to-0 time. It's a test of the car's  brakes as well as acceleration and aerddynamics. The Nevera needed only 29.94 seconds to perform the feat. For comparison's sake, it took the powerful Koenigsegg Regera 31.49 seconds to do the same task at the Sweden's Råda back in 2019. It also takes the Venom GT 14.51 seconds to go from 0 to 200 mph. Yes, the Rimac Nevera is seriously impressive.

The team that was present for the Nevera's big day. 

We're not sure who will try to beat the Rimac Nevera, but we're guessing it will be a little while before these illustrious records are broken (as a whole or single records). Clearly, it shows the superiority of electric propulsion versus fossil fuels, despite the fact that the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 (more of a drag racer than a supercar) did the 0-60 sprint in 1.66 seconds.
