Video suggests it's faster to 60 mph (96 kph) than a Tesla Model X P100DL, which needs 2.9 seconds.
Not only is it coming out with an endless string of teasers, but Faraday Future also has a teaser for a teaser. I know that sounds a bit confusing, but earlier this week FF released a 17-second clip with the electric SUV being pitted against several high-end models. Now, the full 45-second version of that video has been uploaded on the company’s official YouTube channel.
We get to see the yet unnamed model in a duel with a W12-powered Bentley Bentayga on the drag strip, thus suggesting it will be quicker in the sprint to 60 mph (96 kph) than the plush model from Crewe that needs four seconds to complete the task. Not only that, but the video also shows the long-teased electrified SUV going head to head with a Ferrari 488 GTB, which it manages to outrun by doing the sprint in less than three seconds.
In the third and final race, the mighty Tesla Model X P100D with Ludicrous mode on has to settle for second place, so Faraday Future is trying to tell us its EV will hit 60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds and will be faster in a drag race.
That being said, we mustn’t ignore the fact we’re looking at a video straight from Faraday Future, so obviously its electric SUV comes out on top at the end of each drag race. These teasers have no value unless the vehicle can actually prove its capabilities in the real world in tests preferably conducted by an independent party.
It’s all sunshine and rainbows in these countless teasers, but in the real world FF is in a predicament taking into account Buzzfeed is reporting the EV newcomer is late with paying bills. It allegedly owes more than $10 million to supplier Futurius and an additional $104,950 in rent to Beim Maple Properties. But that’s actually chump change compared to an unpaid bill of $57 million, prompting AECOM to put on hold the construction of Faraday’s factory in Nevada.
As a reminder, FF will unveil the zero-emissions SUV on January 3rd during 2017 CES in Las Vegas.
