Force 1 will mark Fisker's return to the automotive sphere
Henrik Fisker has signified his comeback in the automotive sphere after releasing a teaser sketch of the Force 1 supercar which will debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) next month.
As the founder of Henrik Fisker Design, the Danish designer said that the Force 1 has been developed with an acclaimed American race car driver. It will be manufactured in Michigan with a production of up to 50 units starting in April 2016.
Fisker adds that the vehicle will feature one of the world's most powerful natural aspirated engines, driven by the rear wheels. It is mated to either a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
Based on the teaser image, the Force 1 appears to have prominent wheel arches along with a vented hood and sharp-looking headlights.
“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. Extreme power, great aesthetics and pristine handling make for a superior ride in Force 1, an American Super Car," said Fisker.
As a review, Fisker resigned from the automotive company that bears his name for having disagreements with the company's executive management regarding its business strategy last 2013.
He was the co-founder of Fisker Automotive that focused on creating plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The only production car that Fisker Automotive released was the Karma. The company filed for bankruptcy in November 2013 and in February 2014, Fisker was bought by the Wanxiang Group, a Chinese automotive parts manufacturing company.
Some of Fisker's notable designs are the following: BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Artega GT. Furthermore, Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker revealed the carbon fiber bodied Rocket Mustang during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
