In BriefFaraday Future announces its mystery car, a single-seat all-electric sports car that can supposedly produce as much as 1,000 horsepower
It seems that Faraday Future may have accidentally leaked images of its concept car, just a day ahead of it official unveiling at the CES—the biggest consumer technology show of the year. Images were leaked, unintentionally, via the App Store, after the app showed up prematurely on the listings.
Faraday Future has been touting its vision of “redefining our relationship with the automobile.” And based on that phrase, these changes are coming in the form of a superfast vehicle that can go from zero to 60 in less than three seconds, with a top speed of over 200 miles per hour, thanks to its 1000 horsepower engine.
A Twitter user first noticed the app, whose app details and screenshots were then downloaded.
As far as futuristic vechiles go, Faraday Future’s concept car certainly fits the bill. In fact, the company is forthright about the fact that it’s not a car that consumers would use to run errands in. The company asserts, “We at Faraday Future are extremely proud of this vehicle. Though we are not a race car company, our concept shares its core design DNA with our forthcoming consumer line. The process of building this car inspired us, unlocked our imagination, and allowed us to pursue exciting new engineering objectives without restraint.”
However, given that description, it’s safe to assume that a consumer line anchored on the same elements and concept featured in this concept car will be available.
