It wasn’t all that long ago that we saw a Rimac Concept One and the Bugatti Veyron go head-to-head…sorta. There were no lap times recorded or the quarter-mile times, just two people driving both vehicles back-to-back and comparing the experience.
This new video is the lot like that, only it takes place on the race track and features some drifting. The Earl of Pembroke—he owns the Veyron and yes that is his title—stars once again, although this time he’s joined not by the CEO of Rimac Automobili and by its test and development driver Miroslav Zrncevic.
The two take both cars out for the spin on the track before Zrncevic shows the Lord just how to get a Concept One sideways.
Yes, this all-electric supercar can drift. Unluckily no lap times were recorded (again, c’mon) but this video does show how the two cars stack up when it comes to acceleration and handling.
The Veyron is no track superstar and it was the gold standard for supercars until its successor, the Chiron, came on the scene.
The fact that the Rimac can thrill the Veyron owner and former race car driver speaks volumes, as does the fact that it will drift.
