2006 Fisker Latigo CS


Henrik Fisker left the relative comfort and prestige of his position as design chief at Aston Martin in order to start his own car company, Fisker Coachbuild, and has since added his own interpretation to some of the world’s most notable cars, including the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG, which he turned into the Fisker Tramonto. His latest project, the Fisker Latigo CS, uses a BMW 6 Series Coupe, and the result is a performance-laden Bavarian thrill ride that looks decidedly un-Bangle-like.

Price: $180,000. Figures for the M6-based Fisker aren’t yet available, but the 2006 Fisker Latigo GS built on a BMW 650 Ci chassis sells for $180,000. That includes $72,000 for the donor vehicle, $108,000 for the Fisker Coachbuild body treatment, $7,500 for the Fisker trim package, and $35,500 for the Fisker custom trim package.

Power and Performance: Under the hood is a 4.8-liter V8 offering 360 horsepower, while the Performance Plus Package bumps that up to 470 horsepower. Fisker Coachbuild is also planning on releasing a M6-derived Latigo CS in the coming months, with a standard rating of 500 horsepower and up to 620 horses with the Performance Plus Package.

Why it matters: It’s a completely rebodied 6 Series, and that matters for two reasons: first, because BMW is becoming so, uh, common, really. And because it gets rid of that controversial tail that has many folks coughing, but – to Chris Bangle’s ultimate delight – many an automaker copying. Notable design elements to a Fisker Latigo CS include the grillework, which looks very aviation-orientated, carbon fiber body panels and a total leather interior.
