Faraday Future’s insane FFZero1 concept car may just be able to give Tesla a run for its money.

Having debuted at CES in Las Vegas a couple of months ago, the super cool luxury design has been getting tons of attention for its crazy look that is half Batmobile and half racecar.

Even more impressive is that the company itself has only been around for a year and a half.
“Our goal was to build a car with a sixth sense for its driver’s intentions and needs—one with adaptive personalization, seamless transfer of custom vehicle configurations, access to live images, and real time data visualization,” says the company on their official site.

The auto apparently has four Quad Core Motors that offer over 1,000 hp, can hit 0-60 in less than three seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 mph (322 Kmh).
The single front seat was inspired by NASA’s zero gravity design and are meant to give the driver a feeling of weightlessness, while reducing fatigue. The 30-minute video above is certainly worth the time to watch the unveiling of this new concept car.

According to IGN, the chassis is really where it’s at, since Faraday wants to use the same design in their production model, sort of like what Tesla did when they gave the same chassis to their Model S and Model X crossover.

Though the FFZero1 isn’t street legal and probably won’t be put in production for years, it does seem to imply that Faraday is serious about competing with Tesla.

What are your thoughts? Does Tesla Motors finally have some real competition?
