Faraday Future is launching a new video series documenting the development of its new FF 91, preparing for the 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

This is the first in a video series that will chronicle how the new FF 91 has come together, tracking all of the testing done to prepare the FF 91 for the 4,720-foot hill climb.

In this video, the FF 91’s handling and dynamics are discussed, specifically how the rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring and semi-adaptive dampers will allow the FF 91 to tackle corners.

“The hill climb on Pikes serves as the ideal setting to further develop the electric propulsion system and supporting thermal systems of FF 91,” said Nick Sampson, Senior Vice President of Research and Development. “Testing the performance of FF 91 in real-world conditions sets the bar even higher as we bring the vehicle to market in 2018.”

Faraday Future will compete in the exhibition class with a Beta-level development vehicle that is said to be representative of the production version of the FF 91.

The 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb will take place on June 25.
