Riding In Faraday Future's FF 91 Prototype Looks Terrifyingly Quick

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.

DISCUSSION

I a bit confused as to whats going on with Alex? Is he normally like this? He seems so standoffish, like he got forced into doing what most enthusiasts would see as an awesome opportunity.
