The 745-hp spawn of Bob Lutz's and Henrik Fisker's VLF Automotive car company.


Bob Lutz and Henrik Fisker are two powerhouses in the automotive industry, so it's no surprise that when these two men created a stunning Viper-based supercar when they got together to form their own car company. What you're looking at here is a result of that company, and while only five examples of the VLF Force 1 V10 were ever made, this was the very first one.

It isn't hard to see the mashup between Fisker's design language and its 2015 Dodge Viper donor car. This carbon fiber body combines bold, aggressive lines with round, swoopy fenders, and this car looks about as subtle as a supercar can get painted in Midnight Blue.

The interior is equally bespoke with a mix of red and black leather, suede and Alcantara throughout the cabin and a quilted pattern on the seats.

The VLF Force 1 V10 backs up its bespoke styling in fitting style starting with the Viper's 8.4-liter V10 and six-speed manual gearbox. While a stock 2015 Dodge Viper puts out 645 horsepower, VLF Automotive squeezed an extra 100 hp from the Force 1 V10 helping this 3,395-pound supercar sprint from 0-60 in just 3.3 seconds. Needless to say, this car performs as good as it looks, and since a VLF Force 1 V10 probably won't come up for sale very often, this could be a rare chance to grab an ultra-rare American supercar.

Buying a bespoke supercar doesn't come cheap, and buying the first example of said bespoke supercar is an even pricier endeavor. As such, Gooding & Co. has this 2015 VLF Force 1 V10 listed for sale at $275,000 after the car failed to meet its reserve at auction.
