Video: The Sound Of A Million Dollar Electric Supercar

Video: The Sound Of A Million Dollar Electric Supercar

Just eight 1,088 horsepower Rimac Concept_One have been built since early 2013, and only 80 more will be built at $1 million each. So what does a million-dollar electric car sound like at full-throttle? A lot cooler than you might think, actually.

Though it’s brief clip, it’s one of the few where the Concept_One has been able to really let loose, as most demonstrations of this electric supercar have been limited to public streets.

As you might imagine, flexing 1,088 horsepower and a downright inconsiderate 2,800 lb-ft of instant torque on a narrow thoroughfare is probably not the best idea. But on the track it’s a different story, and here we can really see the Concept_One ring it outs four electric motors.

Rimac claims the Concept_One can zoom from 0 to 60 MPH in just 2.8 seconds, even faster than the mighty Tesla P85D, which has become something of a measuring stick for speed these days.

A million bucks also gets you as much as 310 miles per charge, though Rimac has plans well beyond just a single supercar. The Croatian electric automaker wants to supply electric powertrain and drivetrain components to other automakers, and the technology Rimac is pioneering is even being used to improve the lives of the disabled.

Too Far? McLaren seized after driver refuses to ‘spoil’ bodywork with a number plate

Too Far? McLaren seized after driver refuses to 'spoil' bodywork with a number plate

Has this supercar driver taken his love of bodywork a little too far? A driver had his McLaren confiscated by police because he could not bear to screw a numberplate into its bodywork.

Tsao He, 37, refused saying the order by officers in Taiwan would spoil the bodywork of his £270,000 McLaren.

The MP4-12C, which does 0-60mph in just 3.1 seconds, was seized when police saw it parked in a street bay without its front plate.

Mr He, 37, said: ‘The car looks so perfect, I just couldn’t bear to put holes in that beautiful body for something as ugly as a registration plate.

‘I told them it was registered and I showed them the plate, which I keep under my seat. I couldn’t believe it when they towed it away.’

Police in Taichung also gave him a £230 ticket for overstaying in the bay while they waited for a tow truck.

Mr He can apply for the car’s return after he fits a plate but faces a fine to cover the cost of towing it away.

A police spokesman said: ‘The car failed to display the proper documentation and has been confiscated.’

He added: ‘When the owner is ready to obey the law and fit a registration plate he can apply for the return of his car but he will face a fine appropriate to the cost of towing the vehicle.’

The Acura NSX supercar press kits are selling for $275 on eBay

After a decade of absence from the automotive market, the Acura NSX supercar generated much excitement when it was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Only a few days after the news broke, a number of journalists – or at least, people who were accredited as journalists at the show’s press preview on Monday and Tuesday – put their NSX press kits up for sale on eBay.

It’s common for automakers to offer elaborate press kits when they introduce new models, and the NSX kit did not disappoint. Packaged in a lovely tin box, it contains a USB thumb drive loaded with pertinent model information and a small metal model of the car.

One sold on eBay today for $167.50, and other online auctions ending later have received bids well in excess of $100. There’s even one enterprising individual offering a buy-it-now price of $250 for one of the kits.

Do you think it’s right for journalists to sell the press kits on eBay?

It’s not every day you get a spin in a factory owned AMG Hammer. Chris Harris was lucky to step behind the wheel and have the option to floor the wonderful historical AMG vehicle. He also had a trip around the factory at Affalterbach and saw some other cool stuff.

The AMG Hammer was the world’s fastest passenger sedan at the time in 1986. The power was created by a Mercedes 5.6 liter V8 tuned by AMG to 360hp into a midsized sedan. It had 32-valve cylinder heads and twin camshafts, and said to be faster than the Lamborghini Countach from 60 to 120 mph.

Driver Crashes £850,000 Supercar Into Lake For Insurance Fraud

 

Driver Crashes £850,000 Supercar Into Lake For Insurance FraudAn infamous motorist who was filmed crashing his Bugatti Veyron into a lake – in a video which became an internet sensation – has admitted the incident was an insurance fraud.

Andy House, 39, was unaware he was caught on camera as he drove the £850,000 supercar into the depths of a salt water lake in a flurry of spray.

The soaked driver, who now faces 20 years in prison, claimed he had been momentarily distracted by a low-flying pelican when reaching for his mobile phone, causing him to swerve uncontrollably.

As the Bugatti Veyron he had purchased one month earlier gargled in the water, Mr House clambered out but left the pricey 253mph car’s engine running.

The engine spluttered in Gulf Bay near La Marque, Texas, wrecking it beyond repair.

However, unknown to Mr House, footage of the incident – which features no low-flying pelicans – was uploaded to YouTube, where it was viewed four million times.

Mr House immediately lodged an insurance claim for $2.2 million (£1.3million) making the incident one of the most expensive single car crashes in US history.

This lead to a major investigation involving the FBI, local police, Texas Rangers, the Department of Public Safety’s Criminal Investigation Division, and the Sheriff’s Office.
