H.R. Owen is proud to announce it has been appointed as the sole UK dealer of the ground-breaking Rimac all-electric hypercar brand. Rimac joins Pininfarina and Puritalia as H.R. Owen’s solely electrified or hybrids brands, and the most recent additions to a list of partners that already includes Aston Martin, Bentley, BAC, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Rolls-Royce.
With a top speed of 258mph, a 0-60mph time of 1.85 seconds and a 0-100mph time of 4.3 seconds, Rimac’s latest model, the C_Two, makes devastating use of the instant torque available to an electric vehicle. More than that, the C_Two maintains its eye-widening acceleration throughout a full-throttle cycle, achieving 186mph from rest in just 11.8 seconds.
But the C_Two is also a comfortable, bespoke Grand Tourer with a 400-mile range (NEDC), can be charged to 80-percent capacity in less than 30 minutes, and has been designed to be used hard, repeatedly and reliably. This is no fragile thoroughbred; new and innovative, liquid-cooled thermal management systems mean that this is a car capable of two full laps of the infamous Nürburgring at full power – with a negligible drop in performance.
Set to arrive in 2020, H.R. Owen realises that ownership of a C_Two is more than just the buying of an object. It is the start of an intimate relationship with a brand. Once you have purchased a Rimac Automobili product, you are invited into the Rimac family, rather than treated as a number on an order sheet. With only 150 units available, you will also become a member of a very exclusive club.
The addition of Rimac to the H.R. Owen portfolio further reinforces the vision of H.R. Owen owner and Berjaya Group founder, Vincent Tan, in placing the brand at the forefront of the electric revolution underway in the hypercar segment.
