This year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has Unplugged Performance and Faraday Future on board!
We've learned from the 95th Running of the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb press release that there's something truly delicious that we - EV afficionados - can look forward to this June: the "Exhibition Class". Why? Two electric cars are set to run against each other in that class: the first one is a modified 2017 Tesla Model S P100D from Unplugged Performance and the second one is Faraday Future's FF91, a preview of the company's first production vehicle unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show this past January.
The FF 91 will be driven by PPIHC rookie Robin Shute (Gardena, CA), 2016 Formula Car Challenge Triple Crown National Champion and Formula Pro Mazda winner. Unplugged Performance will enter a 2017 Tesla Model S P100D with 2011 Formula Drift Champion Daijiro Yoshihara (Japan/Hawthorne, CA) behind the wheel.
Unplugged Performance is the world leader in premium performance upgrades for Tesla Motors vehicles, focused specifically on the customization and sports performance, while Faraday Future (FF) is a global auto and tech company, unifying sustainable transportation and digital ecosystems to redefine future mobility.
We're excited! Are you?
