These two 2020 Karma Revero GT models have been wrapped to honor the iconic P-51 Mustang, a single engine fighter plane built in 1940 in Inglewood, California. Both cars feature wraps and calipers inspired by the aircraft’s red, yellow, grey and silver designs.
The two hybrid-electric vehicles have embarked on a 3,000-mile (4,828 km) journey at goldRush Rally Eleven, and were even on display this past weekend at Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Florida.
Much like with the P-51, Karma also wished for the 2020 Revero to feature excellent speed and an extended range. The four-door GT will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds, nearly a full second quicker than its predecessor.

It also comes with a new TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder in-line engine supplied by BMW, meant to power an on-board electric generator and enhance overall performance. Meanwhile, its dual electric motors put down 536 PS (528 HP), whereas the 28kWh mid-mounted lithium-ion battery generates up to 80 miles (128 km) of all-electric range, and up to 360 miles (579 km) in total combined with the on-board generator.
The two specially-wrapped pre-production Revero GTs will be on the road for a total of nine days, driving from Miami, Florida to Austin, Texas.
As the direct successor to the old Fisker Karma, the new 2020 Revero GT wishes to position itself as a Tesla Model S rival, yet its powertrain, as you can see, is not fully electric. However, Karma Automotive claims that by using an internal combustion engine as a range extender, the vehicle will offer its buyers “the best of both worlds – extended EV capability without range anxiety.”
