Former F1 driver Nico Rosberg has taken delivery of the brand new Rimac Nevera electric hypercar worth $2 Million. The 2016 world champion has become the first person to receive the brand new Rimac Nevera electric hypercar.
The $2 Million car would be the first electric car in the city of Monaco with a VIN number that ends with 001. Only 150 units of the hypercar will be produced with each car showing an individually numbered plaque showing the build sequence.
Rosberg’s car has stellar black paint with Vertex wheels and gloss black brake callipers inspired by the ‘Bat Mobile’. The interior is finished with all-black Alcantara leather, with a subtle ‘Nico Rosberg’ signature on the armrest plate with a marking saying that the car is 001/150.
Talking about the car Rosberg addressed how the car is the pinnacle of automobile engineering with innovative electrification technology. He said, “Ever since I first met Mate and truly understood the genius behind Nevera, I knew I wanted car number one. For me, this car represents absolutely everything I could ever want. It showcases the very best of innovative electrification technology, bringing it into a car designed literally from the ground-up to be not just incredibly fast – or the fastest – but really great to drive, too. I can’t wait to see what it can do.”
Mate Rimac, CEO of the Rimac Group, also opened up about his relationship with Nico Rosberg and said, “When we first started designing the Nevera we set out to build a car that would impress even the best drivers in the world. Nico was on that list, and it’s a great feeling to know that someone who has mastered the most focused and cutting-edge motorsport in the world gets such a thrill from the car that we’ve created.”
“We’re all looking forward to following Nico’s journeys with the Nevera; all of his cars are used and enjoyed, which is exactly what we encourage our owners to do. And if anyone can test the limits of what we’ve built, it’s him. We’re proud to call Nico a friend and the first member of the rapidly expanding Rimac Nevera owner family.”
