VLF Automotive Force 1 V10 is a Rebodied Viper

VLF Automotive certainly has a serious braintrust, with Henrik Fisker, Bob Lutz, and Gilbert Villarreal behind the brand. One of the first cars that the company is showing is called the Force 1 V10 and it is derived from a Dodge Viper.

The bodywork on the car looks more like a mash up of Aston-Martin, Ferrari, and Maserati, which in a word looks fantastic. It’s driven by a massiveĀ 745hp 8.4L V10 engine. The car also has some aero tidbits with a deep front spoiler and rear diffuser in carbon fiber. A rear wing houses the in-car Wi-Fi antenna and third brake light. One of the more superfluous touches is the in-car wine/champagne holder, which seems a bit out of place in such a powerful sports car.

The Force 1 V10 promises to do 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds, a quarter mile run of 10.97 seconds, and a top speed of 218 mph. The standard gearbox is a 6-speed manual with an optional paddle shift automatic. The car will sell for $268,500 and the initial production run will be 50 units sold through Ben Keating’s Viper Exchange.
