Karma comes back around... with a V8

Ever felt like your Fisker Karma needed more… oomph? After the rise and fall of his eponymous company, Henrik Fisker is now heading up a new automotive venture. But he’s not quite done with the Karma yet…

Smoke and mirrors

From futuristic hybrid to Chevrolet V8-powered saloon – the technological step backward is a surprising move from the automotive entrepreneur. The ‘Destino’, as it’s been christened, will be produced under the ‘VLF Automotive’ name, for which Fisker will work as head of design and product strategy. Powered by the previous-generation Corvette ZR1’s 6.2-litre supercharged V8, retrofitted in place of the old hybrid petrol-electric powertrain, the Destino will cost a staggering 229,000 US dollars. Would you buy one over an Aston Martin Rapide or a Porsche Panamera?
