Fisker have announced that they will be unveiling a new sports car called The Force 1.

They have pencilled in a date and time for The Force 1 to be unveiled at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on the main show floor on 12th January 2016.

For now all we have is a sketch that showcases typical Fisker cues such as the long nose, short tail, wide body with bolstered wheel arches.

The Fisker The Force 1 will be a high-performance car featuring “powerful and dramatic sculptural exterior styling”. Other design features include Ultra Thin Ventilated laser blade rear lights and a luxurious interior that seats two.

The Force 1 will be front-mid engined, rear wheel drive and will feature one of the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated engines to be see in a road car. There are no figures yet sadly but whatever the power output, it will go to the rear wheels via either a six-speed manual or an optional paddle shift auto box.

The limited edition Force 1 has an all carbon fibre body, a new active suspension system and 21 inch wheels wrapped in high performance Pirelli P Zero tires.

Prices have been set at just under $300,000 which by basic conversion rates stands just over £132,000. Fisker have pinpointed that The Force 1 is the only American sports car in it’s price category to have the complete package that it has.

The Force 1 has been in development for most of 2015 with an acclaimed American race car driver and his team, though no names have been mentioned, the active suspension is a system currently being used by said driver on his race car.

Fisker have confirmed that The Force 1 will be manufactured in Michigan with a limited run of just 50 units being made available from April 2016.

Henrik Fisker, the founder of Henrick Fisker Design said:

“I believe there is room in the market for a daily driver that embodies all the attributes of the best track racing car, and the comfort of a luxurious sports car. Extreme power, great aesthetics and pristine handling make for a superior ride in Force 1, an American Super Car.”
