Faraday Future introduced its FF 91, an electric car that matches the speed of a Formula One car, ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas.

Faraday Future showcased the FF 91, highlighting that the car can accelerate from zero to 60mph to 2.39 seconds, giving Telsa a run for its money.

At the unveiling, pre-recorded footage showed the car was able to park itself, this comes down to a driverless valet system and also two aerodynamic antennas which will allow the car to behave like a wireless router.

Furthermore, Faraday Future's senior vice president Nick Sampson revealed that the FF 91 will use facial recognition to unlock the car and also learn about the driver's behavioural patterns.

The vehicle itself is modelled against a four-door sedan, which is curved and features tinted glass on the doors and the roof.

Deliveries are expected to begin in 2018 and those interested can place a $5,000 refundable deposit with the option to upgrade to the Alliance Edition.
