"More than a concept car -- it is a car of concepts," the company said. Able to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds, the FFZero1, which has a carbon fiber body, boasts a top speed of over 200 mph and its smart to boot, with smartphone-connected remote vehicle setup capabilities, according to the company.

"Since our electric vehicles will not require the unwieldy mechanical excess that traditional cars do -- such as centralized engines, obligatory exhaust outputs, and cumbersome reservoirs for gasoline storage...
