Default Karma turning heads

Nice to see, in this video of a Karma-driver looking for a parking spot at an automotive event, what an amazing head turner it is. And ear turner too

What's going on with the brake lights in this video? Do the Karmas brake lights flicker at low speeds intentionally? Or have no hysteresis? Or was this a SW bug?

The silver paint looks awesome - cant wait to get my Signature Edition...!

siliconkiwi,

The tail lights don't flicker to human eyes, it's just a video artifact. The frame rate of the camera is out of sync with the pulse rate of the LEDs. There was a long and detailed discussion about this in another thread: http://fiskerbuzz.com/forums/Thread-Another-delay?page=5&highlight=flicker

I just realized - I've driven this particular car!

This event is held near Atlanta and this is Fisker Atlanta's demonstrator Karma. Its a Silver Wind Eco Chic. Details of my drive were posted here: http://fiskerbuzz.com/forums/Thread-Demo-car-drives?pid=2566#pid2566

Here's a companion video to the one above. It's a 10 minute clip of the watching the Karma on the road as it is being driven from Fisker Atlanta to the Caffeine and Octane car show.

Both clips were filmed by Fisker Atlanta's eCommerce Director Greg from a sister dealership's Cadillac CTS-V.
