You don't hear too much about the Henrik Fisker-designed Artega GT, but its occasional appearances are always welcome. In this episode of Where's Artega Now?, the folks at eGarage worked with Germany's Christopher Kippenberger, who make a quadrocopter designed for capturing aerial footage.

A day was spent at Germany's Blister Berg Drive Resort, essentially a German version's of Spain's Ascari Race Resort. One slight difference: Blister Ber's track isn't finished, so the Artega was left to drift it out over the construction site threading around haulers and front-end loaders.

Kippenberger's quadrocopter is of his company's design, meant to bring both Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and helicopter shots into the range of the enthusiast video shooter. At $5,000, it's not cheap, but that's a steal compared to other UAVs – and just pennies compared to a helicopter – and each unit is built-to-order.

But enough reading. Have a look at what it and the Artega GT can do in the video below.

        @Captain Spadaro: Ferrari wishes it could still produce cars that look this nice! The Ferrari FF, WTF? And the 458 Italia's front end is no beauty queen, either. And yes, I have seen the 458 Italia in person, so the standard Internet excuse of "it looks better in person" just isn't true.

        Not much of a rip-off when the car costs half as much. More like a relative bargain. I think an Artega costs about as much as a 911.

        I'm a little burnt out on the song, having heard it in every video shot with a GoPro in the past year. As a videographer though I'm interested in the quadcopter.

      The Artega is a very unfortunate car in my mind. It's got the goods to be the 911s point-for-point rival but has all the brand recognition of a Panoz Esparante. It'll die of obscurity rather than lack of ability. It hurts to think about what we may be missing because of that fact... Sidenote: along side the NSX, the Artega is what the Pontiac Fiero would have grown to be, although far less costly, if GM had kept he car. A shame how GM has such and so many good/great ideas undone by their bean counters and money-men execs. Like the Corvair and Monza, the Fiero is an "ironic hit" today. A car that GM couldn't make enough of, that would be incredibly popular today, if they were making them today.

      Looks like a new-school A110 to me.
