Wow, same time for 1/4 mile sprint as Tesla P90D. Makes you really think about this advanced concept of ICE that Henrik is pioneering. However it should at least sell well in Middle East - I've heard that oil is pretty cheap there.

The article states $268,500.
Do you remember the champagne holders from the Thunderbolt concept?
Wait, I recognize the seats too!

I must have it. The champagne holders were the deciding factor!

It's basically a high-speed champagne delivery vehicle, since you can't actually drink the stuff while you are driving, and in the Middle East, they have to replace them with carbonated apple juice or some such.

AML is looking pretty foolish now with their heavy-handed litigation threat. Henrik's lawsuit is unlikely to get anywhere, but with AML looking like total idiots, it has probably served its purpose and will be quietly dropped in a few weeks.

Totally badass looking car. Well done Henrik.

Thanks for ending the speculation. Curious they did not have these pictures for the press tour, but maybe they hadn't unveiled at that time. Pretty cool - get's my 11 year olds' seal of approval. No back seat, but maybe if your kids are really small they can ride in the champagne holders?

Noticed the 2 colors (black/silver) on the rear mirrors? I really like, that it seems to be in line with the Windows.

What's odd: the seats are prepared for 4 point seat belts, but they've installed 3 point

Did I miss, what the base of this wonderful devil is? Do they build it from scratch or do they source significant parts from other brands?

It's Viper and yes, Coach build much like his Latigo, Tramonto, Rocket etc.
looks like he took the rocket look from the mustang and placed it on a viper ;-)

I guess the KARMA is Henriks ONLY end-to-end creation - even the Z8 and Aston were only his design that were manufactured by exiting production car makers. I guess that makes the KARMA special ;-)

BTW, I was blown away from the pictures of the buick avista from detroit -- they did a nice job and only gave credibility to my note to henrik on facebook when I told him the fisker should of been a REAL coupe -- While the four doors are nice, I think a real KARMA Coupe would of been special - 02

I am not sure if this counts, but Henrik did design a (heartbreakingly beautiful) coupe version of Karma, the Sunset. Sadly, it never came to pass for reasons already well known to the readers of this forum.



This was the car I really wanted, but even when the company was operating, it did not seem like they intended to ever build it.

Then Tony Posawatz sent that exact same sunset to VL for the MAACO $99 paint and body kit special. Ruined Forever
