Hypercars at Geneva Motor Show: Electric Rimac Concept Two challenges 500 kmph V8-powered Corbellati

Corbellati claims another record for its "production" vehicle with a top speed of 500km/h. Rimac is only expected to produce 100 of these supercharged cars.

Croatian carmaker Rimac packs a punch with the Concept Two and its off-the-scale performances. It has a 1,408 kW (equivalent to 1,914 horsepower) electric motor with a top speed of 412 Km/h and record-breaking 1.85-second 0-100 km/h acceleration. Rimac is only expected to produce 100 of these supercharged cars, estimated to sell for just over a million euros each.

For its part, Italian car firm Corbellati claims another record for its "production" vehicle with a top speed of 500km/h. While its design nods to the stylish Italian sports cars of the 1960s, its 1,800-horsepower V8 biturbo engine belongs to a new era of speed. Other than this headline-grabbing announcement, the fledgling carmaker is yet to comment on expected production and price.

Note that visitors to the Swiss show will have to make do with admiring these cars while stationary rather than in action.
