FFZERO1 is fully autonomous, both on and off the racetrack
Electric car company Faraday Future has revealed the FFZERO1 concept at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Faraday Future says the FFZERO1 concept is the company's design study for their future range of “clean, intuitive electric cars.” The all-electric concept is a single-seat race car that features a futuristic design along with an aggressive fascia, sharp character lines and a distinctive rear.
Faraday Future adds that the FFZERO1 also has a sleek body that is “sculpted by aerodynamics.” It also has a lightweight carbon fiber composite construction, a high performance racing suspension and an advanced vehicle dynamic control.
The interior of the FFZERO1 concept features a fully-connected cabin, integrated with intuitive user interface. The driver controls all of the car's functions through a smartphone-connected remote, found in the center of the steering wheel, which can also provide a live analysis of vehicle systems. The driver sits at a 45-degree angle that's said to improve blood circulation. Faraday Future says the FFZERO1 concept is fully autonomous, both on the roads and at the racetrack.
According to Faraday Future, the concept is powered by four quad core electric motors which generates a combined output of more than 1014 PS. Faraday Future claims that the FFZERO1 concept can go from 0 to 97 km/h in less than three seconds before hitting a top speed of 322 km/h.
