2008 Fisker Latigo CS on eBay – Click above for image gallery

Are you not a fan of the current BMW 6 Series? Can you not wait for the next-generation model? Are you looking for something a little more exclusive? Has Fisker caught your attention with the Karma, but not so much for its hybrid drivetrain? If your answer to any of these questions was an emphatic "yes," then you may want to have a look at this eBay Motors listing.

Before kicking off his ambitious luxury hybrid project and after having penned such gorgeous sportscars as the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and BMW Z8 roadster, the noted Danish designer Henrik Fisker started his own coachbuilding operation. The California-based operation had two products: the Mercedes SL-based Tramonto and this, the BMW M6-based Latigo CS. Only 150 examples of each were made, and one of the latter – a post-revision 2008 model – has now popped up for grabs on eBay.

Mechanically, the Latigo is essentially the same as the M6 up which it is based, but Fisker managed to cut out some excess weight and enlisted the services of tuning house RDSport to tune the high-revving 5.0-liter V10 engine up to 648 horsepower. Stiffer springs and custom rolling stock are also part of the package, to say nothing of the exquisitely-crafted interior. This particular example has a Buy It Now sticker of $90,000; check it out in the extensive image gallery below or follow the link to the auction page.

      wow....thats a pretty good lookin car...i'd buy it if i had the money

      It looks like it just tied Sweet Sue to the railroad tracks. Do you have to grow a handlebar mustache to drive one?
        • 4 Years Ago
        OK, that make me laugh. First thing I thought of after looking at the pics was some old chap with a long mustache.

        Not a pretty design.

        Sadly, you have a point. I really don't like that Fisker signature grille.

        That said, it's somewhat more attractive here than it is on the Karma. The Latigo also manages to have a MUCH more graceful back end than the stock 6 series.

        Not as bad as Lincoln though.


        You mean not as bad as Cadillac. Lincoln is doing very well

        The grill cut out just does not look right. Not a fan.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Looks Alfa-ish from the back, the front is too busy. Not sure if it's an improvement on the stock 6.
      • 4 Years Ago
      will these be collectors cars?
      or considered exclusive body-kits?
      wonder if they are breaking the molds to maintain exclusivity (and dificult repairs)
      • 4 Years Ago
      Styling= awesome. Stance= awful.

      Only 150 of each were PLANNED to be built. Word has it, only 2 of the Latigos were ever made (the Mercedes version sold a few more). In that case, 90k may be a steal.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Andrew
        Serious?

        I'd believe it......the car is very close to the 6-series + some tacky features.

        The Karma is much better looking (well except for the interior).
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Andrew
        the "Karma" is "better looking"? It looks like an angry sting ray designed by a high-schooler.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I dig it, for 90k you got a 648 hp M6 with a custom body and interior, go for it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      90 000$ for an unserviceable car shapped paper weight, no thx.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well, you could mostly replace it with BMW parts, right?

        Besides, anyone dropping 90k could probably afford any other additional issues like custom repairs, etc.

        Fisker coach-built cars were actually serviceable by either Mercedes or BMW (at least for powertrain/drivetrain).
