Controversial VLF Force 1 V10 supercar revealed in Detroit

It comprises more than half the auto in order to house an 8.4 liter V10, 745-horsepower engine.

In the Force 1 it produces 745hp and 865Nm of torque.

VLF claims the Force 1 can dash from 0-60mp/h (0-96km/h) in 3.0 seconds dead, on its way to a V-Max of 350km/h. He added that those numbers, which will be limited to only 50 Force 1 units for the meantime, may grow once VLF reaches Europe, Asia, and other worldwide markets.

The announcement was made Friday ahead of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, where VL will display an updated version of its creation, which is known as the Destino. "It is nearly the opposite of many European brands, who are all about understatement", Fisker said. This trick damping system means the Force 1 is far more comfortable and tractable than standard Viper, allowing the driver to enjoy the Force 1 on a daily basis rather than being relegated to a weekend-only position in the owner's garage.

"We think there is room to do something unique, something, when you show up in that vehicle, people will go like, what is that?"

"This is an American supercar, and American cars are always about 'show what you got-be up front, '" says designer Henrik Fisker.

But with the extreme performance on offer, it seems unlikely the Force 1 will struggle to find buyers despite a price tag that would buy you a McLaren 650S.

VLF may not be a name you're familiar with, but you certainly wouldn't miss the company's Force 1 V10 if it passed you on the highway.

He'll make only 100 or so this year. "The day light opening (DLO), or side window, has a completely new and never before seen graffic that ends up in a sharp spear".

Under the carbon fiber paneling is a cutting-edge chassis and computer-controlled suspension setup that promises fine handling as well as blistering but predictable straight-line speed. The supercar also comes with unique features like a champagne holder. The vehicle will be front/mid-engine, featuring amongst the world's highest output natural aspirated engine in a road vehicle, driven by the rear wheels either by a six-speed manual or optional paddle shift auto box.

Production of the V10-powered coupe will take place in Auburn Hills, Michigan, at the end of April 2016, with deliveries to commence in the third quarter of 2016.
