Faraday Future definitely has our attention with their conceptual EV race car - FFZERO1.
Yes, the car’s name is all-caps.
But if you find that over the top, just note that it can hit 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, and tops out at over 320 km. Its 1,000 horsepower engine is also a nice bonus.
The company announced plans to build a $1 billion USD manufacturing plant in Last Vegas and it promises that the FFZERO1 is on its way.
So how will it work?
It’s simple, really. The car’s battery cells will situate between its front and rear axles. And if you want more power? The wheelbase stretches to fit in more batteries. This simple design will also allow the company to easily configure front-, rear-, or all-wheel drive models.
The FFZERO1 is a single-seat racecar with a seat reclined at a 45-degree angle. This is done to improve the driver’s blood circulation. A smartphone can dock in the center of the car’s steering wheel, and as far as we can tell, a specialty app would allow you to control your car’s functions.
Faraday Future says the FFZERO1 will be completely autonomous. And this means you will finally be able to lean back and enjoy your morning’s coffee and newspaper on your way to work… in the car.
You’re still not sold?
Well.. just look at it! The FFZERO1 is beautifully futuristic. And that makes sense, given FF’s ultimate goal to “define the future from the future's perspective”.
The EV race car will make its debut this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. And if you want more info, check out Faraday Future’s website.
