For those who haven`t heard about Fisker Automotive, it is an American automaker making its first debut in 2008 with the world`s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, Fisher Karma.
Now it seems that fate of the car manufacturer remains undecided, and engineers, along with the chiefs from VL, are moving forward to plan the building of a V-8 Karma hot rod named the Destino.
In collaboration with the giant Katzkin, VL is just about to unveil a Destino convertible at the Detroit Auto Show. The vehicle will have the same styling as the Karma Sunset convertible concept, first debuting in 2009.
The Destino convertible follows the footsteps of its original Destino sedan, first revealed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, coming with a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8, from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
The VL Destino Convertible will likely sports the same supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8, or the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA from the Camaro ZL1, coming with a six-speed automatic transmission.
As for the price of the Destino Convertible, the supercar is expected to cost around $200,000, twice the price of a Karma stock version, with a post-title conversion of about $100,000.
