Move over, Star Wars. Another Force is upon us.
New American luxury company VLF Automotive introduced the Force 1 today at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Billed at the press conference as “an American sports car with no excuses,” the Force 1 boasts a three-second 0-60 time, a top speed of 218 miles per hour, and an 8.4L V-10 engine that produces 745 horsepower and 638 ft.-lbs. of torque.
While the Force 1 is certainly a car for the rich, it’s $268,500 starting price tag actually places it among the more affordable supercars.
Force 1 is one of two cars VLF Automotive unveiled in Detroit. The other – Destino – is a 638-horsepower supercharged sedan built on the Fisker Karma chassis.
Both cars will be manufactured in Auburn Hills, MI and will initially be limited to 100 vehicles per year.
VLF Automotive is a new American luxury company created by former GM executive Bob Lutz and former Aston-Martin designer Henrik Fisker. Legendary Viper racer Ben Keating is also involved.
