Ford Motor Company has unveiled what is being called a "one-off prototype" electric race car named the Mach-E 1400. The insane vehicle boasts a near 57-kilowatt battery, seven different motors, and 1,400 horsepower.

Three of its motors power the front wheels, with four connected to the rear, providing a stunning 2,300 lb-ft of torque.

"Getting behind the wheel of this car has completely changed my perspective on what power and torque can be," professional driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. said.

Ford executives are not planning to sell the car but rather use it as a "test bed for new materials." They are also planning to use it as a proof of concept for the performance of an electric fleet of cars.

? Ford has promised to invest $11.5 billion in electric vehicles through 2022.
