Watch Rimac Nevera Go Beyond Plaid: Sets New 1/4 Mile World Record

“That is unlike anything I ever have driven” – DragTimes

Rimac Nevera, the world’s quickest electric car, has arrived at the Famoso Dragstrip in California for some epic testing with DragTimes.

After a few teasers here and here, finally we can take a look at the full experience of this quad motor, 1.4 MW beast on the track.

DragTimes takes us through the overview of the car, then does a burnout demonstration and several drag races that resulted in a world record time of 8.582 at 167.51 mph (269.5 km/h).

Results (Michelin Pilot 4S Tires):

  • #1 8.74 seconds @ 165.52 mph (without burn out
  • #2 8.612 seconds @ 166.99 mph (with burn out)
  • Record pass: 8.582 at 167.51 mph (269.5 km/h)

DragTimes appears to be blown away by the Rimac Nevera, and that means a lot from a person that tests a lot of the quickest cars, including the Tesla Model S Plaid.

Speaking of which, the Tesla Model S Plaid will be drag raced against the Rimac Nevera in the next episode!

Let’s recall that the Rimac Nevera can be seen at the Monterey Car Week, Pebble Beach (12-15 August).
