The sketches of Henrik Fisker’s Force 1 supercar were first released in November last year, many chalked it up as yet another concept that would never hit the roads, but Fisker’s previous employer Aston Martin had an issue with it nonetheless. It claimed that the Force 1 looked similar to its DB10. Fisker has dealt with all of the copyright infringement claims and legal battles to finally launch the Force 1 supercar at Detroit Auto Show.

Henrik Fisker knows a thing or two about designing cars, he’s the man who sketched great cars like the Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8, perhaps that’s one of the reasons why Aston Martin thought his latest sketch was a bit too similar to its own car.

Force 1 It’s fashioned out of carbon fiber to make it as light as possible, under the hood, there’s a massive 8.4-liter V10 engine with no superchargers or turbos to provide forced induction. It promises 0-62mph in just about three seconds and a quarter mile time of 10.97 seconds. That’s 745 bhp at work right there.

The Force 1 may have been designed as a concept only at first but it’s certainly going to hit the road, it will be produced in limited numbers, only 50 initial units will be produced and will be sold for $268,500.
