So, this is pretty self-explanatory. In one corner, we have the Croatian-made Rimac Concept_One looking to take on hypercar royalty – the Bugatti Veyron – in a quarter-mile (402-meter) drag race.

It’s the new-age battle of electricity versus exploding petrol and on paper, the Concept_One should have the Veyron licked. Its four permanent magnet electric motors, one for each wheel, provides up to 1,088 hp and 1,600 Nm of torque, whereas the Veyron’s 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 engine only serves up 1,001 hp and 1,250 Nm of torque.

We won’t spoil the result of the race, but both all-wheel drive machines finish much closer than you might think. Rimac themselves admit that the conditions for the race wasn’t the best, with temperatures in the negative region (-5 degrees Celsius), hardly ideal for the high-performance tyres.

All we need now is for Rimac to pit its creation against one of the most ludicrous of cars – the Tesla Model S P100D. Recently, Tesla released a software update that introduces a Ludicrous Plus mode, allowing it to accelerate from 0-96 km/h in just 2.4 seconds. Rimac claims its car will do the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 2.6 seconds, so a race between the two would certainly be interesting, don’t you think?
