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

Seconds. That's all it takes for the latest creation from Croatian hypercar manufacturer Rimac to blast to 100km/h.

With so much power, the electric hypercar is claimed to be capable of blasting from 0-60 miles per hour in just 1.85 seconds. The top speed is 412 km/ph and it can reach 300 km/ph in just over 11 seconds.

One of the biggest highlights of the world's most important motor show in Geneva was the announcement of Mate Rimac's new supercar, the "Concept Two", which is completely different from its predecessor, the Concept One. Such claims put it on a collision course with the new Tesla Roadster, said to charge from 0-60 in 1.9 seconds. The battery is capable of giving a range of 650 kilometres. The drive system was developed specifically for this auto. Rimac claims that the all-wheel-drive setup is so capable that conventional stability and traction control programs aren't necessary. The GPS coordinates assists during cornering and braking as per the track layout. 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.

Turkey to set up camps for 170000 people near Syria's Idlib
In a written statement, Turkish General Staff said the soldier was wounded on March 1 during ongoing Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin.

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. Instead, it uses facial recognition to unlock the doors and to fire the engine. With the help of 8 cameras, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), 6 Radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors for lane assist and automatic braking, the Rimac Concept Two can drive on its own.

No pricing details are available for the C Two, but don't be surprised if it carries a hefty six-figure price tag.
