The recently established Faraday Future has officially unveiled its first ever vehicle, an electric concept that comes with more than 1, 000 horsepower, probably to spite Tesla Motors.
We’re treated here with a concept that looks worthy of a future Batman movie with a green agenda, with Faraday Future’s all-electric concept being actually called a racer of the future – with a sleek design allegedly “sculpted by aerodynamics.” It’s a prototype at the moment but Faraday Future has set its sight on Tesla and will soon deliver a competitor for its battery-powered models, with the FFZERO1serving as a preview to the company’s prowess. Technical details are still limited but we know it will be light given the extensive use of carbon fiber and composite materials – the single-seater looks well deserving of a place in the Gran Turismo concept roster. Faraday Future even claims under the crazy body has been tucked a high-tech racing suspension.
The envisioned specifications call for a four electric motor setup for a combined power displacement of at least 1,000 horsepower: enough for the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint to take place in just three seconds and then run to a 200-miles maximum speed. The company has underpinned the concept through its Variable Platform Architecture (VPA) and has the batteries positioned at the center in modular strings. The concept will be showcased at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas – most fitting since the driver will control all functions through a smartphone housed by a dock in the center of the steering wheel and can also run in full autonomous mode, both on the track and on the streets.
