Croatian Hypercar Rimac Nevera at Sun Gardens Resort for Potential Buyers

June 3, 2021 – Croatian automotive sensation Rimac Nevera has made its way down to Dubrovnik where it awaits potential buyers. 

Rimac Automobili is a Croatian wonder. This boutique car manufacturer makes some of the fastest and most advanced electric hypercars in the world. After the great success of its Concept One, the new production car is Nevera. Nevera is a term on the Croatian coast describing a storm over the sea which can come out of nowhere and end up being deadly. What an apt name for the strongest production car in the world, measuring 1914 BHP.

 

We reported on the details of Rimac Nevera. The mastermind behind the company Mate Rimac is very happy with the end result. He stated the car's components are completely custom designed just for this model. With an impressive 0-100km/h achieved in 1,85 seconds, it is clear Rimac has created another head-turning masterpiece.

What's Next?

The latest news coming out of Dubrovacki Dnevnik is that Rimac Nevera is already in Dubrovnik. More precisely, it is at Sun Gardens Resort, just outside of Dubrovnik. Here, the potential buyers will enjoy the first look at the finished product. The resort, which already has a few car-related events of the highest order under its belt, will be a wonderful setting for the official sales event. With the price tag of 2 million, Rimac Nevera is not a car that many will buy. In fact, only around 150 units of these cars are going into production, as it stands now.

With Nevera's being officially revealed only days ago, we are expecting a surge of news, articles, and media hype over this unique car of unparalleled characteristics. Perhaps it is time to follow up the success of Rimac Automobili with other Croatian companies focusing on alternative power sources. It just might be the niche this country's economy is so desperately searching for.

Mate Rimac Soon to Reveal New Electric Croatian Supercar

May the 31st, 2021 - Mate Rimac is set to reveal yet another more than likely jaw-dropping electric Croatian supercar on social media, which will also boast a new name.

When it comes to Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac, there aren't many who have a bad word to say. The owner of the internationally recognised Rimac Automobili, headquartered in Sveta Nedelja near Zagreb, has placed Croatia on the global automotive map, providing it with a position that would never have occurred otherwise in this country with next to no automotive output globally.

This Livno-born car lover boasts dogged determination and a true love for cars. Having busted the myth that ''nothing can be done in Croatia unless you belong to a certain party'' quite successfully indeed with his strong combination of grit and an inventive mind, this 34 year old entrepreneur has even schooled the government in how to attract foreign interest following his massive cash injection from no less than German car giant Porsche.

Having been compared to both Elon Musk and his fellow countryman Nikola Tesla, Mate Rimac, who is currently busy creating his new campus, has made it more than clear that when it comes to creating the iconic Croatian supercar brand, he isn't planning to stop at ''just'' the Concept_One and Concept_Two. 

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Mate Rimac's company Rimac Automobili announced that on Tuesday, June the 1st, 2021, they will present their brand new electric Croatian supercar which will be made in series production on social media.

The new Croatian supercar, hitherto known as the C_Two, will also be given a special new name.

Mate Rimac recently posted a video on his personal Facebook profile taken while testing this model out in Zemunik. He wrote that ''every day two world journalists test the production version of the car he designed, developed and produced right here in Croatia, in spite of everything.''

VIDEO: Discover Rimac - Factory Tour with Mate Rimac, Episode 2

June the 5th, 2019 - Mate Rimac is by far one of Croatia's most astonishing entrepreneurial success stories. While many try and few manage to succeed thanks to the endless amounts of red tape the Croatian state likes to place in the way of any possible chance of success, this innovative Croat is one of the very few who was doggedly determined, and ended up experiencing success nobody could have ever expected, much less himself.

Recently, we wrote two articles on filming at Rimac Automobili near Zagreb, one of which involved a British YouTuber, Shmee150, visiting the home of Croatia's miraculous supercars and leaving amazed by its founder, who guided him personally around the factory speaking in perfect English.

The YouTuber was also clearly taken aback by his intimate knowledge of every detail involved in the production that takes place at Rimac Automobili's plant. The fact that all of this was happening in Croatia also came as an obvious shock to the YouTuber, who was more than grateful to the amazing Mate Rimac for his time.

It seems that this extremely talented Croatian entrepreneur born in Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina, got a bit of a taste for filming at his plant, and created a series on what takes place there. Rimac has since uploaded episode one of ''Discover Rimac Today'' on YouTube, where he uploads videos in a series about all the goings on within his company, showing them to the world, with he himself as the guide.

Rimac's success has been barely comprehensible, especially in the face of the common negativity and range of ''impossibilities'' investors and entrepreneurs often find themselves in here in Croatia. The Croatian state's dark and murky waters are apparently no match for Rimac, and his company has experienced a truly incredible level of growth in the last few years while others stagnate in the face of Croatia's outdated, often unforgiving and draconian policies.

Instead of being bogged down in complaining about the state and drinking coffee all day, Rimac just keeps on going. He has now uploaded the second part of his series. Watch it here:

VIDEO: YouTuber Visits Croatian Entrepreneur Mate Rimac, is Left Astonished

Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac, born in Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is without a doubt one of Croatia's most astounding success stories when it comes to conquering the entrepreneurial and business world.

As Goran Jungvirth/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 24th of May, 2019, Shmee150 is the personal brand of Britain's Tim Burton, a.k.a. "Shmee", a YouTuber who travels the world seeking out the greatest and most exclusive possible car and car related content.

Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac was paid a visit, and the video of that meeting was put on YouTube by Burton on Thursday.

Shmee is known across the ''car spectrum'', from enthusiasts to serial hyper-car buyers, and even by Middle-Eastern sheikhs. He also captures adventures and various car events.

The team shares their personal experiences in the luxury car world through numerous social media networks, especially via a YouTube channel. Using his various experiences, enthusiasm and a very clear way of speaking in his videos, he showcases the world of supercars to his quickly growing audience.

Just twenty hours after the release of the video which features the number one Croatian entrepreneur, Mate Rimac, the video was viewed more than 51,000 times, and continues to be intensively watched by the channel's 1.7 million subscribers, as well as many others who have come to view the video after seeing that the YouTuber had visited Croatia and everyone's favourite Croatian entrepreneur.

In the 51 minute video entitled ''Visiting Rimac'' Burton was personally taken by no less than Mate Rimac himself through the factory, where he and his audience where shown where the legendary C_Two and Concept_One were assembled.

Burton was visibly impressed by what Mate Rimac has managed to create in Croatia, and expressed his gratitude towards the Croatian entrepreneur for his tour of the factory, claiming that it has opened his eyes. Burton also made sure to note how in less than a decatde, Rimac's company has grown to 500 employees and cooperates with prominent manufacturers such as the giants Aston Martin and Porsche.

Burton stated that he couldn't thank Mate Rimac and his team enough for the chance to see where it all happens, adding that he was astonished by Mate Rimac's knowledge of every part of the process that goes into making these incredible cars.
