Rimac’s New Electric Supercar Will Reportedly Be Able To Drive Itself

Late last month, Croatian car startup Rimac teased out images of its new electric supercar, and disclosed it will be faster, costlier, and more grandiose than its first, the plainly called Concept One.

But then in 2016, headsets from Oculus and HTC/Vive showed that the VR experiences people had been writing about in scifi books for years were finally within our reach.
