2023 Acura Integra, SSC Tuatara, 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor: The Week In Reverse

2023 Acura Integra, SSC Tuatara, 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor: The Week In Reverse

We drove the 2023 Acura Integra, the SSC Tuatara hit a new high speed, and the 2022 Ford Bronco received official power ratings. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.
We had our first stint in the 2023 Acura Integra. In short, the return of the legendary nameplate doesn’t disappoint. The steering and adaptive dampers are the highlights, and they really help the Integra rise above its Civic Si bones.
Our spy photographer spotted the 2023 Lamborghini Urus undergoing testing on public roads. The facelifted crossover SUV features revised designs for the bumpers, hood, and wheels. A new infotainment system is expected for the updated cabin. It’s unclear what was under the hood, but the Urus will be electrified in the coming years.
The SSC Tuatara hit 295 mph. While that’s faster than the hypercar had ever gone (previously topping out at 286.1 mph before running out of runway), it didn’t achieve a new production-vehicle land-speed record The second run needed to create a new two-way average was aborted due to an error.
Pagani revealed the Huayra NC. A product of Pagani Special Projects division, the NC sends 819 hp and 796 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 7-speed sequential gearbox. The one-off car made its public debut at the 2022 Motor Valley Fest in Modena, Italy.
Ford CEO Jim Farley tweeted official power ratings for the 2022 Bronco Raptor. Initially said to make more than 400 hp, the widebody off-roader will have 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. It should be silly quick and fun.

Faraday Future has 401 pre-orders for the FF91

Faraday Future has 401 pre-orders for the FF91

Faraday Future this week published its financial results for the first quarter of 2022 (it’s been a public company since mid-2021), and in the documents it was revealed the company had just 401 pre-orders for the FF91 at the end of the quarter.
Although Faraday Future has previously mentioned as many as 14,000 reservations, those didn’t require a refundable deposit like the pre-orders ($1,500 for the FF91 Futurist and $5,000 for the FF91 Futurist Alliance Edition).
The number of pre-orders isn’t high considering the FF91 was first shown five years ago, though it isn’t entirely unexpected given recent doubts of production even happening and rumors that the FF91’s pricing will start as high as $180,000.

Other tidbits revealed in the documents include reported assets of $706 million, which includes $276 million in cash. The company reported a net loss of $153 million for the quarter, up from a $76 million loss in the same period a year ago. A bright spot was total liabilities being a relatively low $271 million, down from $340 million at the start of the quarter.
Faraday Future is confident of starting production of the FF91 at its plant in Hanford, California, in the third quarter of 2022. A second, high-volume model called the FF81 is slated to be built under contract by Korea’s Myoung Shin starting in 2024.
There are still plenty of headwinds. According to the financial documents, Faraday Future’s cumulative losses total $3 billion and the company expects to continue to generate “significant” losses for the foreseeable future as it racks up further expenses with ramping up production and developing vehicles.
