The hybrid powertrain can (or may not) be good and good, but the true beauty of Fisker Karma is in its design. Exchange this powertrain for a good old-fashioned American V8 (like VLF does) and you have a profit package on your hands. And this could only be here for the swap job.

What you are looking at is a 2012 Fisker Karma, which was apparently damaged in a flood. A victim of the same year Hurricane Sandy maybe, or just another kind of water damage – it does not matter. What is that its electrified powertrain will surely be shot, so if it ever comes back to driving again, it will need a new one.

Fortunately, Henrik Fisker – designer of karma (among so many others) is part of an operation that does exactly that. The VLF Destino replaces the Karma 2.0-liter turbo four and the associated pair of electric motors with GM”s LS9 crate motor – a 6.2-liter V8 compressor good for 638 hp and 604 pound torque, just like the one in the last Corvette ZR1. VLF also exchanges the Bucked Tooth grid, along with some other upgrades, which is capable of an even better-looking form (to our eyes) to race you and three of your friends to 60 in under four seconds,

No matter, if you want to introduce this karma to VLF for transformation or Schuhlöffel something different, we do not know. German:. We could not say for sure that it would save even after the apparent damage. But if you do, the vehicle is for sale on Copart, with bidding (at the time of writing) at $ 26,250 and a bit more than two days at the auction.
