BILLED as a ‘new species’ of car, Faraday Future officially launched their new electric sedan which goes faster than a Ferrari and is capable of learning.
The FF 91 debuted in Las Vegas, will be on the roads in 2018 and can hit 60mph from a dead stop in just 2.39 seconds.
That puts it in elite company, faster than both the Tesla record and the Ferrari LaFerrari. In fact it would be the second fastest production vehicle ever made – only the Porsche 918 Spyder has hit 60mph in under 2.3 seconds.
Boasting 1,050 hp, the FF 91 unlocks itself by recognising the driver’s face and adapts to their personalities and preferences.
It can even be ordered to park itself. That claim led to some chuckles, however, when billionaire Chinese investor Jia Yeuting was invited on stage to try it out.
Murphy’s Law intervened and the FF 91 refused to budge, forcing Faraday’s vice-president to crack a joke and doubtlessly fire an unfortunate technician.
