Rimac Nevera breaks EV production lap record at Nürburgring

Rimac Nevera breaks EV production lap record at Nürburgring

The record-breaking lap happened using Michelin Cup2R tires and verified by independent timing data.

On August 18, the Rimac Nevera broke the previous EV production lap record, beating it by 20 seconds on its first debut at the Nürburgring track. In the historical, shorter track configuration of 20.6 km (12.8 miles), the Nevera set the time of 7:00:928. The record-breaking lap, driven by Croatian racing driver Martin Kodrić, was undertaken using Michelin Cup2R tires and verified by independent timing data, TÜV SÜD and on-board telemetry.

This record is the latest in a list of more than 20 that the Nevera has broken this year, the company says. In April 2023, at the Automotive Testing Papenburg (ATP), Germany, the Rimac Nevera claimed 23 performance records in a single day, including 0-60mph, 0-100mph and 0-186mph.

In July at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Nevera once again demonstrated its record-breaking ability. In front of a capacity crowd, the Nevera set a 49.32 second time during the timed Supercar Shootout, making it not just the fastest electric production car to have ever taken on the famous hillclimb, but also the fastest production car to run the hill in 2023. Now, in homage to this record-breaking year, Rimac Automobili says it will produce 12 Nevera Time Attack edition cars.
