Because of drivetrain limitations, the fastest reverse drive was just 53 mph. Thanks to electric motors, that record has been smashed. The Rimac Nevera hit a reverse speed of 275.75 km/h or 171.34 mph. Since the Nevera’s drivetrain has no gears, it is capable of moving backward or forward at crazy speeds. It’s the icing on the cake after the Nevera broke 23 other records.
