    Poor car, more like. That's the second privately owned car he's borrowed and destroyed because he doesn't know how to slow down...

    Still, Rimac is ready for him:

    There was nothing poor about the original car, mostly because its performance. To complete the joke on Hammond, they should write IN MEMORY OF A HAMMSTER on the leather strap.

    Interesting what electric car technology has achieved. But still... I feel electric cars lack soul.

    Still the brand sounds like a lady shaver, being electric isn't helping!

    That's a very stylish fire extinguisher.

    Uniblab, your car is ready.

    Somehow, I don't think putting an "underscore" between the "C" and "T" helps the name... not one bit. Don't park it in front of a pub. Or out back for that matter.

    What isn't looks like something today?


    Beast, I only hope so that will come to games soon enough.

    How wonderful would it be if DriveClub 2 is coming with it's cover...

    Take that, Tesla? I can buy a 0-60 time of under 2 seconds from this thing. I could with the Roadster too if we knew how much power that thing made.

    From the rear it looks sort of like the BMW i8. The i8 is cool and all but this is cooler.

    Wonder how long till we see a production car with 2 megawatts of power.

    This. It's so hard to come up with something original nowadays, unless you waste a significant effort into thinking outside of the box outside of the box.

    The knock off i8 rear is slightly off-putting.

    A small reminder that i8's back's design is also not very original... in a quite bizarre way.

    As for similarities between i8 and C_Two... just a similarly shaped brakelights? Like, that's literally it when you actually compare the two.

    The design looks messy - like a mish mash of a Honda and some American sports cars :mad:

    yes, but it's also more powerful than a locomotive.

    Hmmm. I have been wondering if the electric car world would start doing in-hub/wheel motors, but thought probably not because of the whole unsprung weight performance issue (weight at the wheels negatively impacts performance disproportionately compared with the same amount of weight elsewhere). I suppose overwhelming amounts of power means there really isn't much performance penalty in a straight-line, but what about handling? Or have they figured out a way around the entire unsprung weight issue? It'll be interesting to see where this all leads.
