Henrik Fisker announces Detroit-bound $300,000 sports car

The coupe\'s body is crafted entirely out of carbon fiber.

Danish designer Henrik Fisker will introduce his next sports car at the Detroit Motor Show that will open its doors next month.

Called Force 1, it takes the form of a sleek coupe with a long hood, a rakish roof line, and a short deck lid. Fisker explains he has been developing the car with a renown American race car driver and his team for the past few months, but he hasn't revealed the identity of his business partner. Similarly, we don't know if the car is all-new or if it's based on an existing model, though the coupe depicted in the sketch bears more than a passing resemblance to the Jaguar F-Type.

Fisker was equally coy about what powers the coupe. All we know at this point is that the Force 1 uses a front-mid-mounted naturally-aspirated engine that spins the rear wheels via either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional automatic gearbox controlled by shift paddles. Weight will be kept in check by a body crafted entirely out of carbon fiber

Stay tuned, full details about Henrik Fisker's Force 1 will be announced in the nation's Motor City. Built in Michigan, the coupe is scheduled to go on sale next April with a base price of approximately $300,000. Production will be capped at just 50 units.
