After several leaks over the past few days the Chinese bankrolled Californian based Faraday Future has revealed it’s FFZERO1 concept which will feature a fully-electric powertrain and a massively aerodynamic-focussed design. FF have stated that it plans to provide a variable architecture design which means that the final production will vary in size and drivetrain.
The FFZERO1 is intended for the race track, but with road going capabilities. Offering 745 kW, it will achieve a claimed 0-100 km/h time of less than three seconds and carry on to reach a top speed of 322 km/h. These figures are also aided by the unclaimed but presumed low weight made possible by the implementation of carbon fibre and composite materials as well as high-tech racing suspension.
The batteries within the FFZERO1 will be centrally positioned in modular strings which allows the car to continuously receive power even if one of the cells cave in. The high-output electric vehicle can also run in a fully autonomous setting on both the track and the road.
The FFZERO1’s single-seater interior is just as futuristic as its exterior. A 45-degree seating position is implemented in order to provide the driver with a more fluid blood circulation and offer a higher level of comfort. Equipment within the cabin can be controlled via a docked smartphone within the steering wheel.
More information on the FFZERO1 will be revealed at this year’s CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, but in the mean time, here’s a video to give you more of an idea of Faraday Future’s plans.
