video of the day. Electric E30 and snow.

Well right after posting the Rimac Concept One debut below——was looking into the company to find more about their BMW E30 “testbed” and found this great video—-with the CEO Mate Rimac driving his E30 Electric in the snow to see how the Electric motor holds up in arctic climates.   I see signs for Zagreb, so I’m going to assume this is in Croatia!
