This Bonkers Electric Concept Car Has 1,000 Horsepower And A 200 MPH Top Speed

Video

And it could be coming to CES courtesy of Chinese EV company Faraday Future.

Back in November of 2015 (welcome to 2016!) we learned that a Chinese-backed electric car company named Faraday Future was planning to show a concept car at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). At the time we reported that it would compete with the Tesla Model S, but that was before someone at the automaker reached out to correct us, saying the CES car would be a design and engineering concept. This may be that concept, courtesy of an iOS app reportedly uploaded by Faraday Future.

Twitter user @superannuation found the app and tweeted images from it. It has since been pulled from the store, but here’s a fun video of it that (potentially) proves its existence.

A random Twitter user isn't the greatest source in the world, but we're inclined to believe these images are legit. Faraday Future is holding its CES press conference tonight at 8:00 P.M. PST, and it makes sense that it would launch an iOS app in conjunction with the event. Although the car itself is bonkers—1,000 horsepower from a quad core drive and “battery string technology”—this does seem in line with the company's plans. Of course Faraday Future isn’t launching a Batmobile-esque car to consumers, but a badass concept is a great way to get people talking about its design and engineering potential. Here’s hoping the automaker shows something that’s at minimum half as crazy as this design. We need to start 2016 off with a bang!
