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

Looking around - and under - the cars (these are early production validation models flown in from the factory in Finland where they are made alongside Porsche Boxsters and Caymans), it's immediately clear why the team looks so confident. The exterior fit and finish is excellent - all narrow gaps, perfectly matched lines and super-lustrous paint. Not a ripple or piece of loose trim in sight. The underside of the car looks equally tidy, the entire surface from the rear of the front wheel arches back to the back of the car being completely flat and smooth. This all helps the Karma achieve a Cd of 0.31, which isn't stellar but definitely in the ballpark.
