The VLF Force 1 is an American sports car produced by VLF Automotive. Built around the 8.4L V10 of the Dodge Viper, the Force 1 was designed by automobile designer Henrik Fisker and produces a top speed of 218 mph and 0-60 time of 3.0 seconds. VLF Automotive also partnered with American racing driver and Viper enthusiast Ben Keating during the development of the Force 1, leveraging his experience with the Viper engine. The Force 1 V10 was first unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, with the production of the first run of 50 vehicles planned to begin in April 2016.
The Force 1 V10 utilizes the powerful 8.4L V10 used in the most recent generation of the Dodge Viper. The standard output for this engine is 640 bhp (477 kW) of power and 600 lbf⋅ft (813 N⋅m) of torque. VLF significantly increased the engine's output for the Force 1, which will generate 745 bhp (556 kW) of power and 638 lbf⋅ft (865 N⋅m) of torque (an increase of 14% and 5%, respectively). This results in a top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h) and a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 3.0 seconds.
The engine of the Force 1 V10 is placed according to the front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout (FMR), with the engine's center of mass located behind the front axle. This is meant to improve the vehicle's handling by modifying the weight distribution of the vehicle.
