Electric Car Startup Faraday Future shows off Crazy Supercar

Faraday Future, the California based electric car startup has came out with all guns blazing by showing off their crazy supercar concept. On the eve of the biggest tech show of the year CES, the Tesla's newest competitor unveiled their FFZERO1 model.

A wild eyed with style similar to 1960s bat mobile, single seat with 1000 horsepower, 0-60 under three seconds, and a top speed over 200 miles per hour, the model looks no ordinary but a fantasy car of a PS racing game. Although, it's obvious that the said model is a concept with purely theoretical numbers, but company teases that it could see "limited production.'

The design features white carbon fiber interior, with glass roof, F1 car type steering wheel with smartphone mount in the center. The Halo Safety System in the car supports the driver's head and neck, and a helmet to feed the driver with necessary oxygen and water.

To be more realistic, FFZERO1 won't be the their first production car but the concept has been shown off to display the capability and potential of the startup's billion dollar Nevada based manufacturing facility.

There's more to look into the Faraday Future than what meets the eye, the startup claims that more than being automative company with crazy-looking cars, they're here to fundamentally rethink how cars are made. "We must anticipate the future and act upon it with speed," says Faraday's head of R&D, Nick Sampson.
For now, the efforts seems to be impressive as FFZERO1 gives a short lived hype, but ultimately, the startup must get their act together to deliver a electric car that people can actually buy or subscribe to, as the case may be. The company hasn't given any specific dates of launch, but plans to launch are "within next couple of years."
