Rimac C_Two is still being developed, but the Croatian car maker reckons its 1408kW electric hypercar has finished its wind tunnel testing with improved aerodynamics.
The Rimac C_Two is one step closer to production having completed its wind tunnel testing and realised a 34% improvement in aerodynamics as a result. Some have driven prototypes but the production version is still some way off.
Two prototypes were thrown into a wind tunnel for testing over the last two years. A staggering 120 million elements were modelled with 180 million elements modelled as part of the heat transfer tests, something that’s vitally important to a machine with this much power and that could potentially be the world’s fastest accelerating car. The real-time tests are conducted in a controlled wind tunnel testing environment and on track. The importance of cooling an electric car is vital to ensuring the performance of the batteries and getting the most range possible.
Making the Rimac C_Two slippery is also important and so it runs four specific active elements, including active front splitter and underbody air flaps as well as an adaptable air brake wing.
Can’t wait for the development of this thing to be over, so we can see it running at full noise. This thing could be a real game changer.
