The Weber Faster One is a mid-engined hypercar concept by Swiss car manufacturer Weber Sportcars.
The Weber Faster One is powered by a completely redesigned, four-valve/light-alloy 5.6L (5,600 cc) twin-turbocharged V10 with electronic injection and an intercooler. The engine produces 1184 hp (883 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 922 ft·lb (1250 N·m) at 4,200 rpm. The Faster One uses an electronically-controlled muffler bypass valve to match the power and speed with the appropriate baritone notes in the exhaust and a six-speed sequential semi-automatic gearbox with flappy paddles and a 40 millisecond response time.
The Faster One is claimed to accelerate from standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.4 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6.6 seconds, and 186 mph (300 km/h) in 16.2 seconds. The car has a claimed top speed of at least 249 mph (400 km/h).
The Faster One has independent wheel suspension in front and rear for the intelligent all-wheel drive system, dynamic power distribution to all four wheels, electronically-controlled differentials, and a Formula 1 active traction control system. Both front and rear axles are supported by upper and lower A-arms milled from a single piece of metal and height-adjustable suspension struts with anti-sway bar, springs and selectable settings for bound and rebound.
The Faster One has ultra-wide 2,060 mm, light alloys with Pirelli high performance tires. There's a dual-circuit brake system with ABS and front and rear 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers with vented 380x34 mm ceramic brake discs. This means that slamming on the brakes brings the Faster One to a stop from 100 km/h (62 mph) in about 30 meters (98 ft).
The two-seater cockpit has an integrated safety cell with six-point seat belts for strapping into the sport seats that feature leather and carbon fiber appointments and come in a choice of color combinations. The racing-style steering wheel has more buttons than a game console controller with buttons for engine mapping, the traction control system, and the digital dashboard that is positioned above the steering wheel. There's also a sound system with integrated sat-nav and monitor for the rearview camera.
The Weber Faster One is a Class S car with a starting rank of 1623, a MAX rank of 1722, a MAX+PRO rank of 1785 (qualifying it for a mid-end S Class car), and a Tuning Kit bonus of only +25. The Faster One is meant to compete with the McLaren F1 XP-5 and Aston Martin One-77.
The Weber Faster One has a moderately high rate of acceleration due to being AWD and weighing only 2756 lb (1250 kg). The Faster One also has a very efficient nitro; in fact, the Faster One has a unique nitro efficiency rating of 5/9.5/15.
The Weber Faster One has a total top speed of 482.2km/h at MAX+PRO+Tuning Kit. This is OK but not particularly good either, considering it's rank.
On the other hand, given its width, the Faster One's handling can only be described as above-average, although it has a sharp drifting radius, but not overly so as to result in oversteer, a problem present in cars like the Aston Martin Vulcan and W Motors Fenyr Supersport.
The Weber Faster One can be obtained for free upon saving 75,000 in its EDD event. Otherwise, the Weber Faster One can be purchased for 13,750 when offered for a limited time.
Maxing it out requires 2,978,250 or 16,550, while its Pro Kits require 1,860,500. Initially, the car erroneously required 52 V8 Engine cards, although as of the Rio de Janeiro Update, the car now correctly requires 28 V10 Engine cards. Its EDD event was also modified in the Lunar New Year 2017 Update to reflect the engine card change, with the EDD boxes now giving out V10 Engine cards.
The Faster One was available from September 10 to September 13, 2016 in the Garage for 13,750 in conjunction with an owners only Event. Currently, the Faster One and the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 are the only exclusive cars from the Enduro Update that hasn't been made unlockable by Blueprints yet.
