The Fisker Karma 2012, has showcased an electric luxury car with extra range and the option to plug in or fill up. Facility on your hand to toggle between the all-electric Stealth Mode or fuel powered Sport Mode on a little change of the paddle, the Karma unleash a high performance while maintaining a Eco-friendliness.Putting aside for a moment Fisker’s recent round of bad-news-turned-worse in the form of missed milestones, DOE loan renegotiations and the layoff of some 60 workers in Delaware, I’m here to see if Fisker is making something the world’s elite aren’t just ready to buy, but want to. And that question has already been partially answered. Fisker has produced over 1,500 Karmas, although it’s not willing to cite an exact number of deliveries. According to our sources, around 300 are already in customer hands, and the reps we spoke with claimed 51 more keys were handed over the day of our arrival. So the people have spoken. At least with their wallets. And if they’re looking to stand out from the pack – a particularly difficult feat in the exotic-clogged LA basin – nothing in the world comes close right now. You’ve seen endless images of the Karma since its 2008 reveal, but nothing compares to seeing it on the road. It has presence that would make Bertone, Zagato and the entire Pininfarina design house crumple their sketches, throw their hands in the air and walk away from their articulated desks in defeat. It’s wide. It’s long. And if the seemingly endless hood and mountainesque fenders aren’t enough to make you weak in the knees, the back end and rear haunches make an Aston Martin DB9 look like a pre-pubescent boy in comparison. Also, 22-inch wheels. Standard. But it’s not just the overall shape of the Karma that demands you kick down your boss’ door and demand a raise (or, more accurately, call your broker for a withdraw), it’s the details. Mosey out back and you’ll notice the diamond shaped exhaust outlets, complete with chromed tips. Except they’re not pipes. The duo of polished plates are a pair of milled aluminum caps with “Hybrid HZ” etched into the metal. To find the functional exhausts, you’ve got to move to the front fenders where behind the wheels and just below a matching set of vents are a single set of pipes on each side, neatly tucked in underneath the sheet-metal. Again, details. And it’s even more intriguing on the inside. Place your hand underneath the polished door handles and small rubberized buttons pop open the doors (à la Cadillac CTS Coupe and Chevrolet Corvette). The driver’s door swings slightly upwards and thanks to the massive 22-inch hoops providing a bit more ride height, getting in doesn’t require the Cirque du Soleil contortions you’d expect.
