Meet the Fisker Karma
Fisker has been teasing us with its hybrid GT since 2008. Now, at last, we wrestle the Karma off him and give it a once-over

Standing in the early morning California sunshine talking to Henrik Fisker, you'd think this was just another informal chat about his latest project. We've had plenty of those over the years, first when he was head of BMW Designworks and designer of the Z8, then design chief at Aston Martin and later as the head of Ford's Advance Design Studio. He is his normal open, friendly self, and there is no trace of stress or anxiety. This is odd, as surely there must be a few concerns on this, the first day anyone outside of the company has driven his billion-dollar baby, the extended-range electric Fisker Karma.
