Rimac Automobili has announced on Facebook that it will present the next “milestone in the company’s history” tonight, reports Index.hr.

They invited people to join the live presentation of their new venture on Monday at 8 pm Croatian time.

“What’s next? Here at Rimac, we never rest.
Following the recent launch of the #Nevera, we are announcing the next major milestone in our company’s history. Join us in this celebration and watch the live stream on July 5th at 8pm CEST / 11am PDT,” Rimac Automobil wrote on Facebook, and Mate Rimac also shared the post on his profile.

They also shared a link where you can follow the presentation. 


It’s hard to even guess what this could be about after Mate Rimac recently, after a long wait, introduced the sensational Nevera that pushed all boundaries.  

This second-generation hypercar is limited to 150 units, and deliveries of Nevera to customers will start this year.

The price of the car is two million euros, and in recent weeks the review has appeared in almost every auto-moto magazine and portal.

“The Nevera is the most powerful production car ever produced, with 1900 horsepower, under 2 seconds from 0 to 100, under 9 seconds per quarter-mile, making it the fastest accelerating car ever on the road. It is an indicator of what we can think of in technology and work for other manufacturers such as Porsche or Hyundai who are our investors. Of course, we want to build a strong business in the production of sports cars,” said Mate Rimac.

Mate Rimac announced the big news three weeks ago, which he will finally announce tonight. It was during a speech at the Auto @ 2030 Adria convention of the automotive industry, organized by the Swiss School of Business and Management (SSBM).

He said that he was sorry that on the ten-year path of development he no longer ignored the competition, that is, that he analyzed it too much, instead of working on his own. He stressed that the car industry is facing huge changes – in his opinion, in the near future, there will most likely no longer be car owners, vehicles will be autonomous and will not use only three percent of available time as now, but more than 90 percent.

“Cities will change, real estate prices, there will be fewer police on the roads,” Rimac said, adding that there are still many unknowns in the whole story. The question, he said, is whether some new kids will even take the driving test, whether they will have the time and will to service the vehicles.

He also announced that Rimac Automobili will soon start with the serial production of components for vehicles.

In recent weeks, there has been speculation about Rimac going public, but also about taking over Bugatti. German Manager Magazine wrote, and Reuters reported the news, that Rimac Automobili will go public in 2022 with a company value of five billion euros.

“We are considering different possibilities, but it has not been decided in which direction we will go,” Rimac Automobili said for Index. 

Recall, the contract to take over Bugatti is likely to be announced over the summer and will transfer this brand from VW to Porsche. Car and Driver also recently announced that Rimac and Porsche would then launch a joint venture with Rimac, in which Rimac would be the majority shareholder.

“Getting a Bugatti at the age of 33 would be impressive enough. But this year, Volkswagen is expected to leave the Bugatti brand, or at least a major part of it, to 33-year-old Mate Rimac because he can better design the electric powertrains that Bugatti will need in the electrified era,” Car and Driver wrote recently about Rimac.

Spiegel also wrote about Rimac taking over Bugatti.

“As a supplier, Rimac has caused a sensation in the automotive industry due to deals with Hyundai and the VW Group, and the company is also supplying components for Koenigsegg and Aston Martin. Porsche has just increased its stake in the company from 15 to 24 percent. It is said that Rimac will soon take over Bugatti and make the most exclusive VW brand capable of the future with an extreme electric car,” the renowned German newspaper Spiegel said about Rimac’s business successes.

Under Rimac’s leadership, Bugatti could produce an electric super sports car with a luxurious ambiance, the media wrote.
