Croatia’s Rimac Automobili has published on its Facebook page impressive photos of the C_Two aerodynamic testing in an air tunnel, reports Index.hr on November 24, 2018.
“This is a sneak peek into the Rimac C_Two wind tunnel test.
This is a full-scale model built specifically for the wind tunnel test with fully functional active aero components, realistic suspension and brakes, fans, the realistic pressure drop across the radiator cores and the rotating wheels.
It enabled us to test the relevant parts quickly and compare to the CFD results.
The testing was done before releasing the tooling into production, this way any potential changes can still be implemented in the production car.
More soon… Stay tuned,” wrote the company on its Facebook page.
Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac and his company have been going from strength to strength in recent years. Just recently, Mate Rimac was named one of the top 100 digital champions of Europe and has given an in-depth interview to Financial Times. Two weeks ago, the company announced it was creating additional 100 jobs in Croatia. Mate Rimac was also named one of the Innovators under 35 by the MIT Technology Review. In September, Rimac Automobili announced a partnership with Pininfarina on a production of a new electric car.
This autumn, the company’s new model C_Two was presented in Zagreb, where it delighted all those who saw it, just like it did a little bit earlier in Los Angeles, where another presentation was organised.
Rimac even worked on the famous Jaguar which was featured heavily during the wedding of British Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May this year.
Mate Rimac has proven that it is possible to succeed in Croatia, despite the business environment which is far from what it should be.
