Livno-born entrepreneur and inventor Mate Rimac has done more to place Croatia firmly on the map of innovation and not just tourism than anyone else in recent times. Dubbed the Balkan Elon Musk, Rimac shines a more modern light on the country of genius Nikola Tesla’s birth, attracting investment from the likes of Porsche and becoming immortally associated with the gigantic Bugatti group.
His Nevera supercar was in the making for a full five years, and this doggedly determined self-proclaimed car lover who started up his remarkable business from his garage not so long ago has shown just what can be achieved even in a country which likes to bite the heels of would-be entrepreneurs at every step.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, businessman and creator Mate Rimac took to Facebook recently to post that the first Nevera supercar had officially been registered.
“After five years of development, over 1,000 people in the project, seventeen prototypes produced, 45 crash tests, nine cars destroyed during crash tests and thousands of other tests – today, the first Nevera has officially been registered. For now, in Croatia, and soon in many other countries. Here’s the license plate, it even has its stamp. It will be interesting to see them soon on the license plates of Monaco, UK, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, etc,” wrote Rimac.
He then revealed what the different letters and numbers on the stunning Nevera’s license plates meant.
One of his Facebook followers asked him below his published photos of the newly registered Nevera if the letters NM on the table mean “Nevera Matina”. Rimac replied that it meant “2360 Newton metres”, to which multiple people said is truly an original thought.
