Faraday Future showed up to CES this year with a real car that seemingly actually exists, claiming some absolutely absurd performance figures during its hour-and-a-half long presentation. Riding along in such a quick car looks pretty terrifying.

Our friend Alex Roy over at The Drive got to go for a ride, and they streamed it live on Facebook for all to enjoy.

After heavily stressing that the vehicle they were in was just a prototype, which explains away the lack of interior fitments, the engineer shows off the car’s planted platform thanks to rear-steering torque vectoring, as well as its insanely rapid acceleration, claimed to be zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.39 seconds.

For a company advertising the most leisure-friendly vehicle with the best autonomous capability in the business, why are you making it so damn tempting to drive?

Clarification: Jalopnik’s Raphael Orlove did get to ride in the car, he just didn’t shoot a live video at the time. More impressions on that from him soon.
