Fisker Karma with the heart of a Corvette.. Why?

The whole point of the Fisker Karma is to save the earth, be green, do good to the environment using an energy efficient car – but in a lot cooler way. As such it kind of makes (no) sense why a startup called Destino would want to fit 6.2-litre V8 powertrain capable of 638bhp and 819Nm of torque – into the above mentioned green car. Even the cool solar panel roof has been removed.

The Destino brings together the award-winning design by Henrik Fisker and well received powertrain from the Corvette thanks to the minds of industrialist Gilbert Villereal and former General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz.

"The goal in designing and engineering this automobile is to provide true motoring enthusiasts with an exquisite work of automotive art that performs at a world-class level. Attention to detail is a paramount concern, as is reliability and ease of maintenance. The result is truly an American designed, engineered and manufactured four-door performance car that rivals such models as the Porsche Panamera and Aston-Martin-Lagonda Rapide", according to Lutz.

Destino has an overall length of 5151mm a 3160mm inch wheelbase while standing at 1331mm inches tall. Prototypes are currently in testing.
