Rimac enters 2018 with the introduction of a new logo and corporate identity, but more importantly, the announcement of a brand-new car.

That means the new car will be quicker than Rimac's first, which was no slouch:

We'll learn more about the new kid as we progress towards its Geneva Motor Show debut in March, but we already know its added performance will come courtesy of a more advanced torque-vectoring system. Additionally, Rimac told Road & Track last year that its 200-car production run consists of 150 standard versions and 50 special-edition models.

Stay tuned for more before the car's Geneva debut.
