This is the future of really, really fast things. It’s the sister car to the Rimac Nevera, so based around the same powertrain technology, electrical architecture and carbon core – but is draped in a body and interior of Pininfarina’s design.

Sorry, yes, forgot to mention, this is an all-electric hypercar, sorry Hyper-GT. A 1,874bhp and 1,696lb ft monster capable of zero to 60mph in sub 2 seconds, 0-186mph in less than 12 seconds, a top speed of 217mph and if you can find a 180kw DC charger, you can top up from 0-80 per cent in 40 minutes. But what’s the future of really, really fast things like to drive? Well, we sent Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix to Miami to find out.
