Fisker Thunderbolt Turns The Aston Martin Vanquish Into An Even Sharper, Leaner Machine

Henrik Fisker’s foray into electric cars has long gone bust. In a not so surprising move, he’s returning to the space that originally made him famous in the first place: automotive design. His newest project? This absolutely stunning Fisker Thunderbolt, a one-off take on the Aston Martin Vanquish.

Described by the designer as “an elegant, beautiful GT sports coupe with pure emotional sculpture,” the revised James Bond car receives a subdued albeit still-dramatic transformation. For the most part, it retains the vehicle’s traditional shape, all while incorporating signature design cues that give the ride a sharper, leaner feel.

What changed? The Fisker Thunderbolt has a larger grille that now takes up the front end’s near entirety, with a large power dome on the hood that features triangle-shaped air intakes. The back receives a wraparound rear glass and thin LED strips, with a half-inch lower ride height and new 21-inch wheels. It also gets a dark tinted glass roof, new head lamps, and an assortment of bright work. Inside, the vehicle gets a range of luxury appointments, including an 11.6-inch Curved Control Screen with adjustable height, skeleton chronograph on the dash, specially-trimmed leather surfaces, and even a wine bottle holder.

Have the means, want this car? Sorry, the Fisker Thunderbolt isn’t for sale. However, Galpin Aston Martin, prompted by initial response to the vehicle, will be taking limited orders for a slightly-modified version. No pricing details were given, but expect to let go of some serious dough if you’re getting one.
