We know the 1,888 horsepower Rimac Nevera electric hypercar is fast, but did you know that it just set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest speed in reverse? That’s right, it now holds the crown for achieving 275.74 km/h (171.34 mph) in reverse, as verified by Dewesoftm at the ATP proving ground in Papenburg, Germany, on October 7, 2023.
Rimac delivers the Nevera to customers with a limited top speed of 219mph (352kph), but when unlocked, it can achieve a blistering 258mph top speed at special customer events with the support from the Rimac team and under controlled conditions. One important thing to note is that the tires are under extreme stress during such runs.

I’ve driven Nevera since it first turned a wheel and to see the perfectly honed car that is today is a really emotional moment. The most important thing I have learned during the top-speed attempt is how composed and stable the car was – confirming that our aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics teams have done an amazing job,” said Miro Zrnčević, Rimac’s Chief Test and Development Driver.
