You Can Own a Fisker Aston Martin for $400,000

Henrick's back again with the Thunderbolt sport coupe, based on the V12 Vanquish

Happen to catch the latest design from Henrik Fisker? 

The eccentric Danish auto designer unveiled his $400,000 “Thunderbolt” this past weekend at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, a vintage car show held each year off the east coast of Florida, near the Georgia state line.

It’s a GT coupe hewn from a stock Aston Martin Vanquish. The V12 beast with 568 horsepower is available only by special-order through Galpin Auto Sports, a design house in Los Angeles. (You have to buy the car first; the $400,000 is for all the work after that.)

Fisker said via e-mail on Monday that the car is meant to give real enthusiasts access to something that virtually no one can get. The vehicle's rarity makes it especially valuable as a collector's item.

“Auctioneers have started to show tremendous interest in modern coach-built collectibles,” Fisker said.

This one is particularly special. It has a hand-laid carbon fiber body, a dark wrap-around rear window, and tail lamps that are cut so thin they look like daggers. Inside, it has an 11.6-inch Panasonic screen that moves to accommodate the driver’s height. A skeleton chronograph clock by Maurice Lacroix is set into the dashboard.

There’s also a champagne holder nestled between the two sport seats inside. We’re used to seeing such accommodation in, say, a Rolls-Royce or Bentley. But a sport coupe? That’s got to be a first.

Fisker declined to divulge how many have been ordered, but he promised to make no more than 24 of them. Wait time at this moment is three months.
