Few modern designers have produced such unbridled automotive splendor than Henrik Fisker. Although his most recognizable creations are sitting in Aston Martin showrooms, Fisker decided to take a play from many early 20th century coachbuilders and start his own line of visually enhanced and reengineered vehicles.

Currently, Fisker Coachbuild has only produced two models. The first, began life as a Merc SL and after some impressive body modifications and engine tweaks, was born anew and entitled the Tramonto. The second, called the Latigo, found its basis in the current BMW 6-series chassis and, much like its sibling, benefited from a variety of exterior modifications. Since only 150 examples of each vehicle are to be made, exclusivity comes at a price, with sales expected to be in the $200-300k range.

According to an article at Pistonheads, Fisker's custom-coach line-up will gain one more model after it is debuted in Geneva. The price is estimated to be in the $100,000 range, however, the new vehicles identity, platform and production numbers have yet to be announced. Judging by the (relatively) low price of admission, it would be safe to assume that Fisker is planning a high-volume model to compete in the ever-expanding "super-premium" (read: $100k+) market.

We eagerly await more details.

      Those not understanding "why" dont live next to Beverly Hills, as I do -- where an AMG Mercedes is the basic car to certain groups. Spoiled people want a brand name that is exclusive, not "a Mercedes I had customized"

      I'm sorry I don't really understand the Fisker. If you where going to drop that much cash on a 6 series or SL, i expect something more. The body is not all that different then the donor car and the engine mods are fairly run of the mill type stuff.

      There is nothing much that stands out on them making the only people to know that the car actually is are car guys, that will be all that impressed with it anyway. You might as well pic up your own 650 or m6 and drop 50k into it and get something more personallized and cheaper.
