Detroit 2016 : Henrik Fisker’s Force 1 V10 revealed at last

After weeks of anticipation — and a $100 million lawsuit against Aston Martin, which tried to block the car’s launch — Henrik Fisker finally launched his supercar at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Tuesday. 

As the name suggests, the Force 1 V10 uses an 8.4L V10 engine rated at 745 horsepower.

The massive 21” alloy wheels are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero performance tires and partially hide high-performance Brembo brakes. Meanwhile, the interior is super-luxurious, with hand-stitched, ultra-soft leather and Alcantara, not to mention several other unique features such as a champagne holder.

The two-seat, all carbon fibre-bodied Force 1 V10 will be a low-volume sports car (50 units only), manufactured in Auburn Hills, Michigan by the newly launched VLF Automotive, of which Fisker is a partner and design chief. Production will begin in late April, and deliveries will follow starting in the third quarter of 2016.

The base price is set at $268,500 USD, equal to approximately $384,000 CAD.
