Faraday Future has seen its share of setbacks following January’s reveal of its FF 91 electric luxury car, but it walked away with a victory at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
The troubled company not only took home a victory, but it also claimed a new record in the process.
The FF 91 prototype completed the hill climb in an astoundingly quick 11 minutes and 25.08 seconds.
That time dethrones Tesla, which had held the previous record with a slightly modified Model S electric sedan. Faraday Future’s time is more than 20 seconds quicker than that car’s hill-climb duration.
