The dream of Richard Kim and Nick Sampson finally came true as soon as they realized the potential of a sketch of an electric vehicle. Both of them shared it with Faraday Future’s engineering team who were already working on their new ‘VPA’ experiment referred to as Variable Platform Architecture.
The Global Design Head, Richard and the SVP of Engineering, Nick decided to take this opportunity and launch their ultramodern high-tech engineered FF ZERO 1 concept in 2016 during the International CES event in Las Vegas.
Faraday Future’s VPA experiment is a platform that facilitates the electric vehicles and determines their structural ability combined with extensively modified systems and then implements them.
“Unveiled at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Faraday Future FFZERO1 Concept is an amplified exhibition of the same design elements we are developing in our production vehicles, intensified to match FFZERO1’s high-performance engineering. It is more than a concept car—it is a car of concepts.”
This dynamic platform can create ground-breaking designs according to the vehicle’s requirements.
Therefore, the launching of the FFZERO1 concept gave the team a chance to experiment with their engineering ideas and technological concepts on this project so they can serve as a well-prepared testing ground for their production of vehicles in the future too.
The architectural structure of the FFZERO1 concept signifies the ‘inside out’ design philosophy. It is designed to meet the needs of the single driver only on the tracks. The electric vehicle is inspired by NASA’s ‘zero gravity’ design keeping the driver’s seat in mind.
With extreme aerodynamics and unparalleled features, the vehicle offers a thrilling and comfortable experience to all the wild adventurers and racing enthusiasts.
The light-weight body reduces fatigue in drivers and provides great efficiency on the roads with optimal battery usage and top speed. The multifunctional design of this electric racecar accommodates four electric motors with a capability of producing 1,000 horsepower.
The car can race up to 0 to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. With customized configurations and integrated systems, the vehicle operates with great power outputs and provides maximum mobility to the drivers.
This car concept exhibits an all-digital electric design that provides more ’car concepts’ within a concept. Faraday Future’s team design vision and technological values perfectly match with that of the FFZERO1 concept as they focus on integrating highly-modified ‘wheels’ system in their concept to offer extreme engineering and mobility dynamics to the users.
The carbon-fiber center with a cockpit and a technology-enabled dashboard exhibits a futuristic one-seat driver concept. Propeller IP as the team calls it extends from the driver’s shoulder and twists around the electronic dash of the automobile. Further, the drivers can use their smartphones after integrating the device with the car’s app settings to enjoy a fully personalized experience.
Faraday Future’s designed FF ZERO 1 concept is fully-autonomous and demonstrates convenient driving techniques to assist drivers on the tracks. The best part about this electric race-car concept is that it provides a friendly user experience with attractive designs and safety controls.
The company offers a promising future in the automobile industry with the launch of its new FFZERO1 concept and further plans to develop and design more all-electric projects with the support of its powerful platform and professional engineering team.
