Automotive expert Ken Chester joined us in the studio this morning just after the 6:30 news. Ken is just back from the New York Car Show and was really impressed with some of the upcoming technology he saw. He is looking forward to the new Genesis SUV in 2019. It's not a cookie-cutter SUV. And the car he had a hard time even getting close enough to see because of the crowd around it is the Rimac Concept One...the fastest car in the world. Croatia's ultra-limited electric hypercar, the Rimac Concept One has all-wheel drive, but it packs a whopping 1224 horsepower and 1180 ft.-lb., a hundred percent of which is available from zero revs in race mode. Yet thanks to it being from the future, the Rimac works even in the city with the biggest potholes on the planet, accelerating off the line at an unparalleled rate.
