Henrik Fisker Gets Naughty With The Aston Martin Vanquish

One-off

In a complete non-sexual way, of course.

He’s the design genius behind the likes of the BMW Z8, Aston Martin Vantage, the very recent Mustang Rocket, and, of course, his own car, the Fisker Karma. Now that Henrik Fisker is no longer running his own car company (a whole other story entirely), he’s returning to his design roots, the latest example of which is the Aston Martin Vanquish-based Thunderbolt Concept. Revealed this past weekend at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the Thunderbolt is primarily a design study of what the Vanquish could have looked like if Fisker was its designer.

The changes are pretty much skin deep, featuring new carbon fiber body panels and an enlarged front grille with unique headlamps. Out back you’ll notice the wraparound glass styling with LEDs. Compared to the stock Vanquish, the Thunderbolt has been lowered by 0.6 inches and rides on 21-inch wheels. The interior features what’s called the "Curved Control Screen," an 11.6-inch unit that reduces glare thanks to an adjustable height position. As you can expect, the rest of the interior is also bespoke. Will it make production? No, not on a large scale, but Fisker stated that limited production might take place as long as there’s customer demand. We get the feeling there might be.
