Take two: new Rimac C-Two hypercar pokes fun at Richard Hammond

It’s unmatched. Not even the new Tesla Roadster can compete

Rimac, the insane guys from Croatia who came up with the Concept One hypercar, have unveiled the C_Two, an autonomous electric hypercar capable of 258mph. With nearly 2,000hp, this machine can go 0-60 in 1.85 seconds and hit a top speed of 415 kph (258 mph).

Rimac says beneath the carbon fibre bodywork of the new C Two is a 120kWh battery and four electric motors that develop a combined 1,887bhp - or more than twice the power of the new Ferrari 488 Pista. The top speed is 412 km/ph and it can reach 300 km/ph in just over 11 seconds. Take it to the drag strip and it'll cover the quarter-mile in 9.1 seconds. The Tesla Roadster can hit 100km/h in 1.9 seconds. The assists work by learning the twists and turns of the track, using Global Positioning System.

The auto maker claims the 120 kWh battery offers the potential for driving more than 400 miles on a single charge. A "generous" rear trunk compartment can be equipped to carry stuff and large butterfly doors flip up to provide large openings for passengers to get in and out.

Tech wise; the C_Two includes facial recognition, voice control, telemetry data recording and even a virtual driving coach that can display racing lines and braking points in real-time on whatever racetrack the auto is on.

Jeff Sessions to make 'major sanctuary jurisdiction announcement' tomorrow in Sacramento
The Justice Department filing says all three laws improperly attempt to regulate federal immigration at the state level. Details haven't been released, but he'll be appearing at a California Peace Officers' Association event.

The electric supercar can also perform well on the track with a set of assists.

If you get exhausted of regular cornering, the Concept Two also rocks a full "drifting mode", letting you switch between the axles and enable your inner rally driver.

Level 4 autonomous driving, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control capabilities are included. Rimac is planning for a production run of 150 cars.
