The Rimac Nevera is making headlines as soon as once more. This time, the electrical hypercar from Croatia has set a brand new Guinness World Report for the quickest velocity in reverse.
The Nevera achieved a prime velocity of 171.34 mph in reverse on the Automotive Testing Papenburg facility in Germany. The try was witnessed by Guinness World Information and verified utilizing knowledge measured by Dewesoft.
Not like an inner combustion engine automotive, and even some electrical automobiles, the drivetrain of the Nevera has no gears – the 4 particular person motors both go backwards or forwards. That implies that the identical powertrain able to delivering 0-100 mph in 3.21 seconds or 0-200 mph in just below 11 seconds in each instructions.
Matija Renic, Nevera Chief Program Engineer, Bugatti Rimac, mentioned, “It occurred to us throughout improvement that Nevera would most likely be the world’s quickest automotive in reverse, however we type of laughed it off. The aerodynamics, cooling and stability hadn’t been engineered for travelling backwards at velocity, in spite of everything. However then, we began to speak about how enjoyable it might be to provide it a shot. Our simulations confirmed that we might obtain effectively over 150mph however we didn’t have a lot of an thought how secure it might be – we have been coming into unchartered territory.”
Earlier, the Nevera set the quickest lap time for a manufacturing EV on the Nurburgring. Additionally it is the quickest manufacturing automotive to go from 0 to 249 mph and again to 0.
