The car of the future looks insane, if we are to believe the California-based company Faraday Future.

The firm unveiled its ambitious concept to revolutionise the automobile industry, at the annual Consumer Electronics Show.

Dubbed FF01, the car is believed to be a strong rival to Tesla's offering of electric cars as well as any prototype Apple could have in the pipeline.

Meet the Faraday Future FFZERO1 Concept.

The design is fashionably over-the-top, boasting a promise to show information in the driver's view while also having the ability to accelerate from zero to 60mph in less than three seconds.

Other specs for the internet-connected vehicle include having 1,000-horsepower, topping 200 mph and giving drivers a helmet that provides them with oxygen and water.

It will also be fitted with "aero-tunnels" designed to circulate air throughout the vehicle in order to keep the batteries cool.

However, Scott Evans, associate editor for Motor Trend, remained skeptical about the firm's concept tweeting: "Faraday Future claims to be disrupting the industry and completely rethinking the car, but is promising stuff everyone else is doing."

The 18-month old organisation, is partly funded by Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting and has already hired 750 people around the world, with most employees based at the California headquarters.

Nick Sampson, head of research and development at the firm, said the first production car would be delivered in a couple of years.

"You don't need to have a hundred year legacy in the automotive industry to define what the next generation of transportation needs to look and feel like," Sampson explained.
