monaco-based youtuber takes delivery of first ever rimac nevera
Electric

37-year-old man meets Mate Rimac in person to collect the very first Nevera electric hypercar

20 minutes 43 seconds

Last month we brought you news that the first example of the utterly mad, 1,888bhp Rimac Nevera had been completed. That was chassis 000 however, which Rimac is keeping for itself: this is the first of 150 cars to be handed over to deep-pocketed customers.

And doesn’t said customer look happy? Travelling to Zagreb, Croatia, to pick up the £1.7 million electric hypercar, you can watch his entire handover in the 20-minute video above.

He’s met outside the factory by none other than Mate Rimac himself – founder of Rimac and now CEO of the partnership between his firm and Bugatti – for a quick tour of the facilities before the big reveal.

We’ll let you digest the details from the video for yourself, but there are so many cool nuggets of info. No one is allowed to touch the car without wearing white gloves pre-delivery, and there are 14 cameras throughout the car so owners can film and post track day videos without needing to wire up half a dozen GoPros. Clever.

Oh, and there’s a drift mode. Because of course there is.

Not that you need reminding, but the Nevera’s quartet of motors deliver 1,740lb ft of torque and a 0-60mph kick of 1.85 seconds. Zero to 100mph is ticked off in 4.3 seconds, and 186mph is reached from a standstill in 9.3 seconds. Hells bells.

Range is a cross-country-capable 340 miles too, thanks to a whopping great 120kWh battery. Good job it can take a charge up to 500kW, you’d be waiting actual days on a three-pin plug. You can read more about it in our full review.

What do you make of the spec? The owner claims he went ‘full Batmobile’ with his configuration, so virtually everything is black. You’d think as an F1 world champion for Mercedes (see, we knew it was Nico Rosberg all along) he’d have gone for something Silver Arrows inspired…
