Visitors to the Detroit Motor Show have been given the first look at the new car designed by Henrik Fisker. There had been a fair bit of controversy in the build-up to the unveiling of the VFL Automotive Force 1, with rumours of Aston Martin claiming the car was too similar to their DB10 – take a look at the photos and judge for yourself.
The VFL Automotive Force 1 makes use of an 8.4-litre V10 that is capable of producing 745 bhp, has a top speed of 218 miles per hour and does 0 to 60 mph in three seconds. Transmission-wise, buyers will have two options – a six speed manual gearbox or a paddle shift automatic.
Karma Automotive is providing the chassis, while the 21-inch wheels will make use of Pirelli P Zero tyres. Inside, there is a choice of leather, alcantara or suede interiors and state-of-the-art in-car entertainment.
“This is an American supercar, and American cars are always about ‘show what you got – be upfront,'” said celebrity designer Fisker.
He added: “European cars are more about what’s underneath. But this is all about showing the power.”
It is expected that just 100 of the cars will be made and production will begin in spring this year. If you are interested in owning one, then it will set you back an estimated £186,000.
