Harrods, one of the oldest and most prestigious retail store in the world has wrapped up quite a few luxury cars under its wing before – Lexus CT and Aston Martin Cygnet being a couple of them. It is now set to play host to a new hybrid vehicle- Fisker Karma at its Knightsbridge store. Harrods will be the first store to have the car on display and prospective customers will be able to take a tour of the vehicle and also virtually configure their own model. The American-developed hybrid sportscar is a venture by Valmet Automotive in Sweden also responsible for introducing the Porsche Boxster. The car’s 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is petrol cum electric powered and provides a 260hp direct injection, with 201.5hp electric motors dishing out a total output of 403hp and 98lb of torque.
The four-door, four-seat luxury sportscar will give a sprint of 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and still manage to deliver fuel economy of up to 112 mpg with emissions of just 51g/km CO2. The Fisker Karma can go up to 50 miles exclusively on electric power. The car is already on sale in America at a price of USD 102,300.
