A year ago, at the invitation of Audi Argentina to know the RS e-tron GT At the Buenos Aires racetrack, we had the chance to see the great acceleration of a high-performance electric car. The sensations that are experienced aboard these
The German car has 646 horsepower with a torque of 830 Nm that allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds, thanks to its Launch Control system. Its activation is simple. Just hit the brakes with your left foot, press the Launch Control button, and then fully apply the throttle with your right foot. As soon as a light comes on on the dashboard, just releasing the brake shows full power immediately and the body will sink into the seat, the hands will seem unable to hold the steering wheel, and even a slight dizziness will appear for the first second or second and a half, which the brain later assimilates and compensates for.
Electric cars have immediate power delivery and therefore will always be faster to reach maximum speed compared to a car with an internal combustion engine. Only a Formula 1 can compare for its weight / power ratio, a performance similar to that of hypercars or simply electric sports cars in acceleration.
But if the Audi RS e-tron GT had 646 hp and 830 Nm of torque, the question is how to withstand the acceleration of a Rimac Refrigerator, also 100% electric, but with 1,940 hp and 2,360 Nm and what declares 1.85 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h.
Surely they will a lot of training and an unbridled passion for speed and vertigoOtherwise, it is an impossible and unbearable mission. And what if someone said that the Nevera could slow down even more and reach 100km/h in just one second?
The data came from an interview that the site unit did with one of the engineers from Rimac in Croatia. matija renicWhen asked if it was possible to reach that mark, he simply replied “Less than a second.”
“Honestly, the car is very fast. Figures can be given here and there, and we are very proud of it, but this car is more than that. It is not a dragster that you take to the race track and you achieve the best times and that’s it. The car is really very, very complex, and it shows what automotive technology can do in the future. And it is also very useful and very friendly from a user perspective. And in the end, what we wanted to achieve is to develop a car for the driver, something that is very attractive and very rewarding just taking it out and enjoying it.”he pointed.
Fighter pilots, to avoid fainting at extremely high accelerations, have in their suits a device that presses the extremities of the body so that the bloodstream remains constantly irrigating the brain. It is not because of the inverted turns, but because of the sudden speed to which the human body is subjectedIt has not been designed for such a requirement. In fact, it is worth the information it provides Engine1 in his article regarding this order, when saying that as a valid reference, it must be understood that the fastest athletes in the world, run 10 meters in that same fraction of a second in which a Refrigerator could reach 100km/h.
We will have to wait for the birth of the Rimac Refrigerator in less than a second to check if it really makes sense that it exists or not. Although sometimes, some specifications only seek position themselves as references and this would be a good reason to stand out.
