Fisker Coachbuild delivers its first car
After establishing his company Fisker Coachbuild in sunny California back in 2005, former Aston Martin designer Henrik Fisker has delivered his first car at a ceremony at the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills. The car in question is a 2007 Fisker Latigo CS V10 coupe, number one out of an exclusive run of just 150 cars.
The Latigo line of cars is based on the BMW 6-Series family, with the CS V10 model running on the mechanicals of a donor M6. Power levels have been boosted to 648 horsepower, which enables the super-coupe to reach 60 mph from rest in just 3.9 seconds.
The range starts with a $199,000 V-8 model based on the BMW 650Ci, which has 367 hp on tap, and tops out with the $304,000 Latigo CS V10 Convertible. Fisker also produces a second model, the Tramonto, which is based on the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG.
