Rimac says supercar flew over 300 yards during Hammond Crash

Richard Hammond was involved in a serious accident last weekend, while behind the wheel of a Rimac Concept_One electric supercar. It took place at the Hemburg Hill Climb event shortly after the finish line, and saw the car crash a cliff before it burst into flames. Luckily “hamster” went mostly uninjured, apart from a broken knee. Unfortunately this can not be said about the car.

In an effort to present the incident in more detail, Rimac founder and CEO, Mate Rimac, has published more information in a statement on the website Vidi Auto . In him, Rimac says the car flew “300 meters (328 yards) horizontally and stumbled from a 100 meters (109 yards) altitude.” Furthermore, the CEO has also made a point to discover previous reports citing false facts.

“After the first flight, it fell on asphalt road 10 meters (11 yards) below the place where the fire started. I am not able to tell at what speed it was driven, but I can not Believe what was nonsense Was written by people who have no idea or are blind or just mischievous. “

What we know, apart from the above-mentioned details, is that the accident will delay work on the Grand Tour season 2, according to Jeremy Clarkson. Clarkson and Mai will fill for Hammond during the upcoming shoots, and although he did not say when the new season would return, it will probably not be timely for the proposed October premiere.

The car in question, a 2018 Rimac Concept_One, produces 1,224 hp (900 kilowatts) and can reach 62 mph (100 km / h) in just 2.5 seconds. The electric supercar has claimed the top speed of 355 km / h and a range of 217 miles (350 km).
