Faraday Future unveiled its flagship and first production car, the FF91, at a press event before the CES conference in Las Vegas Tuesday night. 

FF claims the car will be capable of driving from zero to 60 in 2.39 seconds—.11 seconds quicker than the quickest Tesla, the Model S P100D. To demonstrate this at the car's launch event, FF brought out a Ferrari 458 GTB, a Bentley Bentayga, a Tesla Model S P100D, and a Model X P100D and performed launches in each of the cars directly in front of the audience. 

FF also said the car will have 1,050 horsepower and be capable of traveling 378 miles on a single charge thanks to its 130-kwh battery pack. 

"The FF91 outruns gravity," said FF Vice President of Propulsion Engineering Peter Savagian.

The car can now be reserved on FF's website with a $5000 deposit. Production is expected to start up in 2018.

Pricing has not yet been announced.
