Hammond discusses crash with Rimac CEO, Mate Rimac.

Great interview. I also liked the introduction to Rimac. Very well designed. Lots of little details about its design that I appreciate. Of course, expensive. But, for instance, it doesn't loose power when going long distances at high speeds. Also, it tells you what's going on inside it so you can monitor its capacities. The Tesla didn't tell me anything when going long distance other than a dotted line on the dash that was up to interpretation.

I somehow think the Rimac is not the most comfortable car out there from its descriptions and movies. Also, because of its quality designs and low numbers, it must be pretty expensive.
