The Rimac Concept One, officially stylized as Rimac Concept_One, is an electric supercar introduced in 2012.
The Rimac Concept_One boasts four separate liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, paired to each wheel. The electric motors are unique in that the front ones provide two single-speed gearboxes, while the rear ones provide two 2-speed dual-clutch gearboxes. The wheels are also controlled by the "All Wheel Torque Vectoring System" that distributes the power to the wheels in accordance with user setup and driving conditions. The Concept_One also has the ability to switch power from front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive. The electric motors are powered by an 82 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery.
Total power output of the Rimac Concept_One comes out as 1088 hp (811 kW) and torque as 1180 ft·lb (1600 N·m). In 2017, the power output was updated to 1207 hp (900 kW).
The Rimac Concept_One's body is made of carbon fiber and its interior features custom leatherwork and handmade dashboard components.
The Rimac Concept_One is capable of accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 2.5 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6 seconds, and 186 mph (300 km/h) in 14 seconds. The car has an electronically limited top speed of 221 mph (355 km/h), improved from the previous 190 mph (306 km/h).

The Rimac Concept One's primary advantage is acceleration, while not the best, still achieves the total top speed in approximately 3 secs. This comes at the cost of short nitro durations, weak handling and drifting radius.
The Rimac Concept One is a car primarily intended for use on short tracks, as due to its poor nitro consumption rates, it will suffer on long tracks.
The Rimac Concept One fares well in events with a car selection limited up to the point where the Concept One becomes the dominant car (alongside the Ferrari 599XX). However, in all other events, the Concept One isn't as competitive due to the Mercedes-Benz Biome and later cars like the Peugeot SR1, ONUK Sazan LM, McLaren MP4/8, Falcon F7, Lotus Evora Sport 410, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series, BMW i8 Coupe being much better choices.
It is highly recommended to steer clear from using the Concept One in Multiplayer League races due to its drawbacks. Additionally, emergence of more competitive cars like the TVR Sagaris, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, as well as the aforementioned MP4/8, and even the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Aston Martin Vulcan and Porsche 911 GT3 RS have substantially reduced the competitiveness of the Concept One. Especially due to the increased probability of getting pitted with cars rank 100+ rank points above or below in Multiplayer League races, using the Concept One will not get the player anywhere near a podium finish.
Starting December 24, 2014, the Rimac Concept One could be purchased for 750,000. In February 2015 for Android users, the Concept One's price was lowered to 650,000; the same price change occurred for all other users in the March 2015 Decals Update. On May 2015, the Rimac Concept One's price had been reverted back to its original form. In the Motorcycles Update, the Rimac Concept One cost 750,000 or 3,850. On March 24, 2018, its price was again changed, to only 350,000. As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update it costs 850,000.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,355,000 while Pro Kits require 452,800, 28 of each Class B Part, 16 Initial & Early Techs each, 36 Mid-Techs and 48 Electric Engines.
It is the seventh car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward and was part of the seventh Multiplayer season, the Spring Fling Season, which started on March 19, 2017.
