Faraday Future has a rather odd looking electric car and the future of that car has been called into question many times. The company has announced that when the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb kicks off this month it will be there to race the FF 91 up the mountain.
The race will be a challenge, the track is very long and gains a lot of elevation to the tune of 4,720 feet from the starting line and the course has 156 turns. Faraday says that the race will be an “essential proving ground for the vehicle’s thermal controls systems.”
Faraday has said that the car will be available to the public by 2018. The Pikes Peak hill climb is one of the longest running events in the country and has been going on since days when horses were the racing vehicles of choice. The Pikes Peak International hill climb starts June 25 and will be the 95th running.
