Fisker Karma's Coming Out Party in August

Fisker Automotive has announced the official coming-out-party for its astoundingly beautiful Karma: it will make its public driving debut during the Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races on Saturday, August 15, 2009, and it'll be on display at Concorso Italiano on Friday, August 14, alongside the Karma Sunset hardtop convertible concept. Additionally, the Karma Sunset will again be on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Sunday, August 16.

“The Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races is the best stage in the world for great moments in automotive history,” said Henrik Fisker, Fisker Automotive CEO. “Fisker is honored to be a part of it.”

In my own humble opinion, Henrik Fisker's Karma is the Sistine Chapel, the Ring des Nibelungen, the Venus di Milo of Future Cars. Elegant and gorgeous and full of staggering heartache, like a fresh pool of bright red beautiful blood.

About the Karma:
-- A full-size luxury sedan with a 50 mile electric range and a 300 mile total range compliments of an on-board generator turned by a 260hp Ecotec engine.
-- Two 201.5hp electric motors send enough traction through a single-speed differential to reach 60mph in about six seconds and a top speed of 125mph (the proprietary Q-DRIVE® powertrain, which allows for fuel efficiency in excess of 100 mpg).
