The model was spotted cruising past iconic locations such as the London Eye and Piccadilly Circus on its demonstration run. The car even explored much of the city’s ULEZ zones without needing to pay a charge.

The Rimac Nevera is the fastest accelerating car drivers can legally use on the road with a top speed of 258mph.

The model’s 1,914hp means it can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 1.85 seconds or 100mph in just 4.3 seconds.

The London trip is the first time the Rimac has been spotted outside of its home country of Croatia and is the first stop of a world tour.

The car will visit almost 20 countries in a bid to find buyers for just 150 Neveras which will be sold to the public.

Rimac says there has “never been a car like the Nevea” which promises to open up “new dimensions in road car performance”.

Luxury car dealer H.R Owen is the only retailer of Rimac models in the UK and helped organise the London demonstration.

As part of its UK show, the car will travel to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend to compete in the famous hillclimb.

H.R Owen will also be hosting a series of exclusive statistic displays to get closer to potential buyers.

Possible Nevera buyers will also be given the opportunity to drive the new car.

Ken Choo, H.R. Owen CEO said seeing the car on the streets of London was a “very special moment”.

He said: “Since meeting Mate Rimac and the whole Rimac Automobili team two years ago, we have believed wholeheartedly in their vision.

“To finally now see the culmination of years of development, with the Nevera finally in our showroom and on the streets of London, is a very special moment.
