If Adam West Had a New Batmobile, it would be the FFZERO1 Concept
Faraday Future took the wraps of their FFZERO1 Concept yesterday at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Looking more like a virtual racer fit for Gran Turismo with features similar to the old Batmobile from the 1960s (or is that just us?), the FFZERO1 Concept is the real deal and completely functional.
All-electric, the FFZERO1 is the company’s first foray into the concept car niche. Faraday Future looks at this as more of study in design and engineering, setting the tone for the company’s future plans from which they can draw inspiration and solutions for their future range of clean, intuitive electric vehicles. The rest of us, on the other hand, are simply gawking at the stellar design. And the idea of manning this beast hitting speeds of over 200mph.
Powering this all-electric racer are 4 quad core motors producing over 1,000-hp, propelling the FFZERO1 Concept from 0-60mph in less than 3-seconds, reaching a top speed of over 200mph.
The cabin is designed for a single occupant, including fully-connected intuitive UI for integration between virtual and heads-up displays. The smartphone connectivity allows for remote vehicle setup and personalization and capable of live analysis of vehicle systems.
As expected, carbon fiber and lightweight composite construction throughout, all sitting on an advanced high-performance racing suspension which includes dynamic control and torque vectoring. For better efficiency, the FFZERO1 Concept gets radically reduced drag and battery cooling via the aero tunnel design.
