Fisker Coachbuild delivers its first carEnlarge Photo
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.
