After he left the company he founded in bankruptcy, Henrik Fisker now return on the automotive stage with a concept depicting its vision on how the future Aston Martin V12 Vanquish will look like.
 
Designed by as a powerful GT coupe the personal interpretation was unveiled during this year Amelia Concours d'Elegance. The concept is called Thunderbolt and has a hand-laid, coach-built carbon fiber bodywork with clean body side, no creases and deeply sculpted air ducting.
 
The hood on the design study is dominated by a large power dome with long triangular sculpted air intakes and also incorporates fitment of unique head lamps. There are also thin protruding, blade-like, tail lamps, a wraparound rear window and panoramic dark tinted glass roof.
 
Fisker lowered the ride height of the car by 15 millimeters and fitted 21-inch alloy wheels with performance tires.
Inside the cabin, the Thunderbolt concept features the world's first application of Panasonic's 11.6-inch Curved Control Screen in a car, as a result of a research partnership between Panasonic and Henrik Fisker. Designed to reduce reflections and glare, the screen's resolution is complimented by the fact that it is adjustable in height according to driver preference.
 
The dashboard also stands as a long partnership between Swiss watch maker Maurice Lacroix and Henrik Fisker, with a Skeleton chronograph integrated into the dash, as well as specially trimmed leather surfaces from Italian furniture manufacturer, Natuzzi. Thunderbolt also includes a unique champagne/wine bottle holder – the first of its kind in a two-seat sports coupe – for securely transporting a bottle or two.
