VLF Automotive unleash the 218mph Force 1

The new Force 1 supercar is the first to be produced by VLF Automotive, a company founded by a star studded line up, including former Aston Martin designer Henrik Fisker, Viper racing driver Ben Keating and ex GM boss Bob Lutz.

Limited to just 50 units, the Force 1 is sure to make quite an impact.  Its naturally aspirated, 8.4-litre V10 produces 745bhp and 638 lb ft of torque, driven through the rear wheels via a 6 speed manual gearbox.  Encased in a 1538kg carbon fibre body, the new supercar is capable of 0-60mph in 3 seconds flat and a top speed of 218mph.

The meticulously designed Force 1 uses complex computer-controlled active suspension with Bremo disc brakes and 21-inch wheels with Pirelli P Zero tyres for a truly thrilling drive.  Buyers will get a choice of leather, Alcantara or suede for the interior, with a few features that go above and beyond, including a transmission tunnel-mounted champagne holder!

Priced around £187,000, the extraordinary Force 1 will go into production in April 2016, with first deliveries expected in the autumn.
