Faraday Future is going more than a little overboard with promo pieces for its production electric car ahead of its January unveiling, but its latest clip at least has some substance. The fledgling automaker has posted a video showing its prototype EV drag racing against some hot competition: Tesla’s Model X P100D (the obligatory electric rival), Bentley’s Bentayga SUV and Ferrari’s 488 GTB. It won’t shock you to hear that Faraday Future’s car wins each of these showdowns (why make the video if it lost?), but that’s good news for acceleration junkies. It means that FF’s vehicle is quicker off the line than even the Model X, which can hit 60MPH in 2.9 seconds using Ludicrous Mode.
