Henrik Fisker Teases New Supercar Called Force 1

Henrik Fisker published a teaser image of his newest creation, called The Force 1. According to the famed automotive designer, The Force 1 will be the only American sports car in its price category that will cost "just under" $300,000.

The sports car's development was done with the help of an American race car driver and his team, according to Motor Trend.

Our best guess is Roger Penske, but the definitive choice could be someone else.

For now, the base car for Fisker's new creation is as mysterious as it gets, but the designer did specify that the vehicle has a front-mid-engine rear-drive layout. Furthermore, we know that The Force 1 will feature the world's highest output naturally aspirated engine available in a road car.

Other technical details involve an active suspension and a carbon-fiber body. The car will link itself with the road through a set of Pirelli P Zero tires and will stand out thanks to its wide fender flares, its long hood, and its fastback-type rear glass.

If you ask us, this sounds just like the Dodge Viper. Looking at the car's lines and at Fisker's teaser sketch, we can say all the details add up.

Henrik Fisker plans to build up to 50 examples of The Force 1 starting in April 2016. Just like the Viper, the presumed donor car, the assembly process will take place in Michigan. Who knows, maybe it's happening at the Conner Avenue Plant. Then again, the Ford Mustang is also made in Michigan, but the specs mentioned are closer to the Viper than to the Mustang.

As some of you know, Henrik Fisker is the mind behind cars like the Aston Martin DB9, BMW Z8, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and, of course, the Fisker Karma. The Danish designer has also penned less-familiar vehicles, like the Artega GT. Recently, he designed the Galpin Rocket, a heavily-modified version of the Ford Mustang.
