Fiskar’s luxury, made-in-California Karma was one of the world’s first production plug-in hybrid electric sports cars. While the Karma was beautiful, The Force 1 promises something different. Fiskar says it is going to be “the world’s highest output natural aspirated engine in a road car.” According to Auto Express, that will push it beyond the 789 bhp V12 in the Ferrari LaFerrari.
As for the design, there is a sketch of The Force 1 that suggests a hint of Aston Martin. According to the press release, “the high-preformance automobile is an American take on a super sports car.”

“I believe there is room in the market for a daily driver that embodies all the attributes of the best track racing car, and the comfort of a luxurious sports car” said Fisker. “Extreme power, great aesthetics and pristine handling make for a superior ride in Force 1, an American Super Car.”
Limited production on ‘The Force 1’ is slated to begin April 16.
