Henrik Fisker will reportedly use the North American International Auto Show to introduce an all-new supercar.

Called The Force 1, the model was developed with the assistance of an "acclaimed American race car driver."  There's no word on who Fisker is talking about but the car will be a high-performance coupe with a ventilated hood, muscular fenders, and 21-inch alloy wheels.  The car will also have carbon fiber bodywork, an active suspension, and "laser blade" taillights.

Performance specifications remain a mystery but Fisker told Automobile Magazine the model will have one of the most powerful naturally-aspirated engines in the world.  That's not much to go on but the Aston Martin Vulcan has a naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine that produces more than 800 hp (596 kW) so it will be interesting to see if the new supercar will exceed that figure.

Despite having a powerful engine, Fisker described the model as a daily driver that combines the best attributes of a track car with all the "comfort of a luxurious sports car."

The Force 1 will be built in Michigan and production is slated to begin in April 2016.  Only 50 units will be made and pricing will start slightly below $300,000.
