The Rimac Concept S is a track-focused variant of the Rimac Concept One.
The Concept S is a lighter, more powerful and more aerodynamic, track-oriented update of the Concept One. The four electric motors can deliver 1,032 kW (1,403 PS; 1,384 hp), enabling the Concept S to accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph).
The Rimac Concept S was added in the Asphalt Moments Update as a high-end Class A car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1512
- MAX rank: 1675 (the highest in Class A without Elite Tuning, beating the Jaguar XJ220S's 1673)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1777
- Tuning Kit bonus: +35
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 265
- Upgrade rank percentages: 20/25/20/35
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/12/16
The Rimac Concept S can reach a maximum real speed of 302.6 mph (487.3 km/h) at MAX+PRO with Tuning Kit activated, the same as the Aston Martin One-77 and GT by CITROEN. The Rimac Concept S has a decently high raw top speed and top speed without a Tuning Kit, but it lags behind with a Tuning Kit activated due to its small boost. The Rimac Concept S is the fastest electric car to date, beating the previous Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition (which is roughly 7 mph (10 km/h) slower but accelerates more quickly) and Vanda Electrics Dendrobium. The Lightning LS-218 will surpass the Rimac Concept S as the fastest electric vehicle in the game (but not the fastest car, since the LS-218 is a motorcycle).
The Rimac Concept S has good acceleration (not as good as the Rezvani Beast Alpha, though, which also travels roughly 4 mph (6 km/h) faster), average handling (the car feels quite heavy when driving), below average drifting, and average nitro efficiency.
Overall, the Concept S, while being a high-end A Class car, cannot rival the kings of A Class such as the Mclaren Mercedes MP4-25 and the Rezvani Beast Alpha on short tracks, and speed kings like the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport on long tracks.
Due to the Concept S' very high starting rank (among the highest in class A), it does not appear suitable for Multiplayer. However, due to its low upgrade rank weighting on top speed, it does have some decent multiplayer tunes. It can reach 287.6 mph with a tune of 0500 5050 (Rank 1599), and can reach 300 mph with a tune of 0505 5055 (Rank 1684). The Concept S does stand a chance against certain top speed-oriented vehicles in short and technical tracks.
The Concept S is a poor choice for TLEs due to its top speed being lower than 304 mph (490 km/h).
