Fisker Fight…

11 May

Yesterday I received an invite down to Bmw Century on University to take a few pictures of

The Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan revealed on 14 January 2008 at the North America International Auto Show.[1] It is the first car from Fisker Automotive, a joint venture of Quantum Technologies and Fisker Coachbuild, LLC,

The Karma is powered by Quantum Technologies’ Q-Drive technology, an innovative petrol engine/electric motor combination; Q-Drive is a series hybrid system meaning that the engine is mated with a generator to provide an electrical connection to the motors and also recharge the batteries and as such the electric motors are the only mechanical driving force connected to the wheels.

In many ways, the Karma (like the Tesla Roadster) is a journalist’s dream. It’s spectacularly sexy, and it has a great back story. The company’s CEO, Danish-born Henrik Fisker, is not only the car’s designer (after a rapid rise at BMW, Aston Martin and other high-profile brands) but also the company’s CEO, a snappy dresser with an internationalist flair and a raconteur’s gifts. Two of his cars, the BMW Z8 and the Aston DB9, were featured in James Bond movies. But Henrik Fisker is far more accessible than the car itself.

Tracey and George Jones, owners of  Century.

It was time for the beauty to leave the showroom floor of Century, and go to its tour vehicle.

Later today Song stops by the studio.
