The FF at CES 2016 sure does a lot of squeezing and re-expansion of air, allowing air into turbulent spar infected openings up front, and exiting though the sides and rear in some sort of maze. I think they could have done much better with that open architecture and single cockpit arrangement.

Is there anyway to calculate the C of D based on 1,000 HP and 200 MPH top speed?

Those numbers are found in the link below.

The coefficient of drag could be reasonable, maybe even low considering it's not an air breathing and radiator cooled internal combustion engine (ICE).
