Watch the Ferrari 458 Italia Get Smoked

While Ferrari trumps most in terms of brand recognition, design and stature, sometimes they just get smoked when it comes to speed! Watch the 26-second clip below and see the Ferrari 458 Italia disappear behind the Rimac Concept One supercar. It is but a short-lived moment of glory for the Rimac, a taste of the power Ferrari possesses daily.

The Rimac Concept One seems to have it going on in terms of the 0-60 jump. Watch it take on the amazing Ferrari 458 Italia 

It is important to point out that this video was created at a gathering intended to show wealthy Middle Eastern potential buyers the power of the Rimac Concept One. That said, the Rimac does pack 1,073 to the 458’s 562 horses. There is nothing quite like a good old fashioned drag race to determine which machine has bigger…tires.

Rimac Concept One

The Rimac Concept One at a glance:

  • This is an exclusive Croatian company
  • 1,073 horsepower
  • 1,180 pound-feet of torque
  • Four in-wheel electric motors
  • Curb weight of 1,650 kg
  • 0-60  mph jump in 2.8 blistering seconds
  • Electronically limited top speed of 189 miles per hour. This number seems quite random, why not make it an even 190, or 200?
  • Want one? That will just be a cool million, USD

Ferrari 458 Italia

Rimac pitted its million-dollar Concept One against an industry favorite: the Ferrari 458 Italia. No, there were no fires…

It certainly would be fascinating to see the Rimac Concept One pitted against Ferrari’s latest: the 950 horsepower LaFerrari! Word is that the Horse intends to create an even more mind-bending version of LaFerrari, with the hope of nabbing the coveted title of World’s Fastest Production Car. Something tells me the good people at Bugatti are very busy right now…
