You may have noticed that Rimac is doing rather well at the moment. Yes, development of the C_Two is taking slightly longer than we’d like, but the first year of production is sold out, anyway, and we’re just impatient for a go in the full-fat 1,887hp electric hypercar.

Both Hyundai and Porsche have been ploughing money into Mate Rimac’s company, too, so it’s no surprise to hear that it’s building a giant new headquarters on the outskirts of Zagreb, Croatia.

What might come as a surprise is some of the features that this new home will incorporate. The perimeter test track is to be expected, but there’ll also be on-site organic food production, grazing sheep, eco woodland cabins, and a kindergarten. Nice.

This is a €200 million (P11.5 billion) project that’ll be spread over 200,000sqm, with space for 2,500 employees—that’s over double the amount of people that Rimac currently employs—in the separate R&D and production buildings.

The new carbon-neutral international HQ will apparently enable Rimac to “ramp up from prototype and smaller-volume projects to high-volume production of its high-performance electric drivetrain and battery systems for many global car companies.” Oh, and there’ll also be an urban swamp and ‘several top-secret project rooms.’ Of course there will be.

The new facility will open in 2023 and is being designed by renowned Croatian architects 3LHD. What do we think, Internet?
