Electric 'supercar' boasts speeds of 200mph


A futuristic electric supercar that can reach speeds of up 200mph has been unveiled.

The single seat cockpit FFZERO1, which also has a smartphone integrated into the steering wheel, made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The smartphone can show real time data and be used to alter the car's set-up.

It is the brainchild of California-based car maker Faraday Future who confirmed there are currently no plans to place the ZERO on-sale, but wanted to create a "car of concepts". They do however, plan to begin building production cars.

The firm is already being earmarked as a potential Tesla challenger in the future. The first teaser video for the car has been watched almost one million times on YouTube.

The chassis in the FFZERO1 is flexible so that it can be made longer or shorter to include different numbers of battery packs, while the body is made from carbon fibre. 

Though several of the biggest car manufacturers were also displaying new car technology at CES, including the likes of BMW, General Motors and Audi, the largest crowds were at the Faraday Future booth inside the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
