All about the amazing Faraday Future FFZero1

Startup electric car company Faraday Future - FF - says it is “rethinking mobility” with a stunning show car for CES 2016. But what’s it all about?

FFZero1: a warning shot for Tesla

First things first: the FFZero1 revealed at CES 2016 is not a production car. It’s a far-sighted single-seat concept car announcing the new company’s arrival with a bang. And how.
An electric supercar
The FFZero1 is an electric supercar that’s “an amplified version of the design and engineering philosophies informing FF’s forthcoming production vehicles” said head of design Richard Kim.
Pure FF
In other words, it’s a Faraday supercar, turned up to 11. Future showroom cars won’t be quite as extreme as this. They won’t look quite so much like 22nd century race track refugees.
Radical style
The outstanding styling is, admits Faraday, because the designers have been allowed to experiment. It’s not a production car, so they haven’t had to worry about the usual constraints…
Teardrop explodes
… Which is how the forward-leaning “perfectly aerodynamic” teardrop profile has come about The driver lifts up this canopy to get in.
Inside airflow
There are aerodynamic tunnels running the length of the car - air flows through rather than around the car; good for reducing drag, great for improving battery cooling.
Inside style
Inside, the FFZero1 adopts a high-tech pure white finish with plentiful carbon fibre. It’s designed from the inside out, says Faraday - and has been inspired by rocket science…
Scalable performance
As for performance, Faraday says it’s a matter of take your pick: the VPA is so scalable, from one to three electric motors can be fitted. Naturally, the FFZero1 goes one better with four quad-core motors, one for each wheel.
1000hp plus power
The FFZero1 has been designed for the track, says Faraday: as such, it has more than 1,000hp, will do 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds and will crack 200mph.
Strings of batteries
The battery tech powering it is all new too: ‘strings’ of batteries can easily be added or subtracted to, depending on the desired power and range.
Carbon construction
The FFZero1, presumably like all future Faraday cars, is made from composites and carbon fibre. We look forward to seeing plenty more from this intriguing startup car company…
