Henrik Fisker, who designed Aston Martin’s DB9 and V8 Vantage and the BMW Z8, is behind what his company is clearly hoping will the sexiest plug-in hybrid to hit the market — the Karma. The first factory-built vehicle is set to be unveiled next month at the Paris Motor Show, and it can go from zero to 60 in under six seconds, with maximum speeds of about 120 miles per hour, while still offering an average fuel efficiency of 100 mpg.

Did we mention it’s sexy? Fisker clearly doesn’t want you to forget that, between announcing the California-built car in Paris (“a city know for inspiring its own passions”) and offering some over-the-top images as part of the “Pure Driving Passion” ad campaign that the company hopes will support its goal of making and selling 100,000 cars per year.
