The Rimac C_Two has a drift mode

The Rimac C_Two electric supercar is the latest all-wheel drive vehicle to incorporate a drift mode for sideways fun.

Rimac confirmed drift mode in a short video released Tuesday. The video doesn’t offer much detail on how the system will work, but company founder Mate Rimac said it will be more than just software trickery. He said the C_Two will be able to drift well on its own, without help from the all-wheel-drive system’s torque vectoring.

C_Two certainly has the power to break its rear wheels loose. Unveiled in concept form at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, it boasts 1,914 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet of torque. Rimac previously quoted 0-62 mph in 1.9 seconds, with a top speed of 258 mph.

Rimac previously said that “everything” was changed for the production version, which was originally scheduled to debut at the Geneva show in March.

Retro Off-Roader Design Battle: Bronco vs. Wrangler vs. Defender

Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender’s heritage can be traced back to the early Land Rover Series 1, 2 and 3. These models were originally developed for agricultural and commercial purposes in postwar Britain. Like the Jeep, they were simple and rugged. In the 1980s, the Defender came on the scene with the squared-off style that many of us have come to love.

The two main versions — the Defender 90 and the longer 110 — were only offered in the U.S. for a few years. This rarity helps explain why they’ve been considered by off-road enthusiasts as forbidden fruit. A bare-bones attitude, with exposed rivets and sharp corners, had a charm all its own.

The Defender underwent its only true redesign last year. It’s a more modern reinterpretation rather than an evolution. It’s softer in its style, which might be a disappointment to the Defender loyalists, but it

Everything We Know About Ford’s Top-Dog SUV

What Is a Ford Bronco Raptor?

Unlike the regular Ford Bronco’s off-road-enhanced trim levels, such as the Black Diamond and Badlands, which are geared toward traditional rock crawling and clod-busting, the Raptor has a higher-speed mission. The closest Bronco that Ford’s shown may be the Wildtrak model, but the Raptor will take that trim’s abilities to the next level. Expect reworked suspension components designed for plenty of wheel travel and high-speed bump absorption—basically, the chassis will be set up to perform Baja racing-that ought to allow the Bronco Raptor to bound across the open desert. There also will be a more powerful, likely larger, engine option than the twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 that tops the run-of-the-mill Bronco’s engine lineup.
