Fisker Karma

The Fisker Karma is generating a lot of buzz, and rightly so. Look at the stats:
  • 408bhp hybrid powertrain
  • 959 lb.ft torque available from 0mph
  • 100mpg
  • Aluminium & composite construction
  • 0-60: 5.8s
  • $88,000

All things to all men, then? It certainly seems to do everything very well in an admirably uncompromising manner, if the claims are true.

The truly arresting thing about it, however, is how it looks. The styling cues are hotchpotched together in a seemingly random way (Corvette front arches, RX-8 rear arches, BMW Z8 nose, Alfa 8C window line), yet it hangs together very well. We like.
