I first wrote about the Rimac Concept One hypercar three years ago. Since then, there hasn’t been a whole lot of news regarding the car, but a new video from Archie Hamilton Racing’s YouTube channel showcases the electric hypercar.

To test the Concept One’s capabilities, the team paired it up against the brutal acceleration of the Tesla Model S P90D and the incomparable LaFerrari. If you’re unaware of the Concept One’s abilities, in the three-year-old article I noted that the car is powered by a 92-kWh battery that sends energy to four sets of electric motors at each of the wheels. This power created equals out to around 1,088 bhp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. With a kerb weight of 4,188, the Concept One can rocket from 0-62 mph in 2.6 seconds (in the old article it’s stated that its 0-68 time is 2.8, but the website now says 2.6).

Does this new hypercar have the ability to take down the Model S and LaFerrari? If you’ve read the title, then you know the answer. Check it out below!
