Rimac Celebrates 15 Years with the Nevera 15th Anniversary Edition

In 2009, Mate Rimac defied skeptics and founded Rimac Automobili in Croatia, despite being told it was impossible. By 2011, he shattered records with his self-converted BMW, proving electric cars were more than just “washing machines.” In 2018, Rimac Automobili unveiled the world’s first all-electric hypercar, surpassing all expectations. Just three years later, that hypercar evolved into the Nevera, setting new benchmarks and redefining performance. To commemorate 15 years of groundbreaking achievements, Rimac introduces the limited-run Rimac Nevera 15th Anniversary Edition.

Only nine bespoke models will ever be crafted, each distinguished by a new matte copper finish that symbolizes celebration and energy, reminiscent of electrical conductivity. A full visible carbon fiber split accentuates its sleek profile, complementing the distinctive Rimac pattern inspired by circuit board connections.

Inside, the 15th Anniversary Edition features copper anodized switchgear and surfaces, harmonizing with its exterior theme. Special ‘2009-2024’ script and a one-of-nine designation adorn the cabin, available in bold black or pristine white with copper leather seats, embossed with ‘15’ on the headrests.

Priced at €2,350,000 inclusive of bespoke options and matching luggage, the first unit will debut at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed. This milestone model will tackle the iconic hill climb, echoing the Nevera Time Attack’s record-setting performance at Goodwood in 2023 with a time of 49.32 seconds.

Mate Rimac, CEO of the Rimac Group, reflects, “Starting in a garage, I never imagined reaching where we are today. The 15th Anniversary Edition Nevera symbolizes our journey from a local dream to a global powerhouse, valued at €2 billion. We’ve evolved from a converted BMW 3 Series to producing the world’s fastest accelerating car, pioneering EV tech, and energy storage solutions.”

Since inception, the Rimac brand has grown into the Rimac Group with over 2,200 employees across Europe. The Rimac Campus, Phase 1 completed, marks a new chapter in production expansion, anticipating future growth.

The Rimac Nevera remains a testament to innovation, powered by a bespoke battery system, dual-motor powertrain, and Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring 2 software. This legacy continues to drive Rimac Technology’s collaborations, including a partnership with BMW on next-gen batteries, and Rimac Energy’s advancements in energy storage.
