We often talk with varying degrees of enthusiasm about ‘communicating’ with a good car (sometimes perhaps too enthusiastically). How it ‘talks’ to you, how it feels, how it encourages you to further explore its limits via reams of ‘feedback’.
Rimac’s incoming C_Two – an electric hypercar with 1,887bhp and the ability to go from 0-62mph in 1.97s – will quite literally talk to you. Tell you what it needs. How to best explore its limits. Perhaps one day, it’ll laugh at other primitive hyperthings that merely coach their drivers using a variety of tyre squeals and smoke signals. It will pity them.
We know this because TopGear.com has also quite literally been talking to Sacha Vrazic, the director of Rimac’s autonomous driving division, about the C_Two’s startling new ‘Driver Coach’ functionality.
Naturally, we can’t yet show you pictures of some of the tech involved because it’s still in development, but here, via pics of the C_Two in motion, a short video and some words, we will try and explain.
