The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the fastest cars on the planet right now. Its hybrid powerplant develops a stunning 950 horsepower and a combined twist of 900Nm. Performance figures are expectedly bonkers. It hits 100kph from standstill in under 3.0sec, the 200kph marker is shattered in under 7.0sec and it can hit a head-spinning 300kph in about 15 seconds. That by any definition is not a slow car.
Then beyond the cold hard performance numbers there is naturally the warm fuzzy glow of the legend of the prancing horse, the glorious F1 victories and the heroic tales of some of the best automotive minds to have ever lived.
Contrast that with Rimac Automobili, an upstart that’s been in existence since 2009 and is based in Zagreb Croatia — probably not the first place you’d think of when someone mentions the word ‘supercar’. However, the company’s maiden creation the 1,088bhp Concept One all-electric supercar is an unprecedented jab in the eye of hypercar aristocracy. It accelerates from 0 to 100kph in 2.8 seconds, produces a monumental 1,600Nm of torques and boasts a top speed of 350kph. Oh and like a proper exotic it costs about a million dollars too.
But what happens when Ferrari and Rimac collide? Not literally obviously. The guys at Archie Hamilton Racing pit the two supercars together and the results were quite eye widening. Hit play to find out yourself.
