New Fisker Surf shooting brake concept to Frankfurt 2011

While the Fisker Karma electric-hybrid luxo-performance sedan is getting ever closer to meeting its production deadline, the newest conceptual model from the innovative automaker is due to make its grand debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show with the introduction of the new Fisker Surf.

Shown in the image on the right, the Fisker Surf will apply the shooting brake treatment to the familiar front end and side design of the production-bound Fisker Karma sedan. Americans might call it a station wagon but shooting brake sounds SO much cooler – and this car deserves a cool name. If the Surf Concept shares the Fisker Karma’s drivetrain, it will offer both a 50 mile emission-free electric range with a gasoline powered support engine that helps this luxury sedan put down a whopping 403 horsepower; also allowing the car to travel up around 300 miles on a single tank of gasoline. By the way, the Fisker Karma electric drivetrain also creates a stunning 981lb-ft of torque that allows this high end luxury sedan to scream from 0-60 in around 6 seconds. Not an incredibly fast time in comparison to some of the other performance luxury cars on the market but how many of them offer 50 miles of emission free driving? None.

I'm just glad he's using car names instead of the alpha numeric nonsense every luxury makes thinks they have to use. <a href="http://www.royal-car.com">Used cars for sale by owner</a>
