Henrik Fisker Designs For De Tomaso

Fresh off the debut of the 725 horsepower carbon-fiber-bodied Galpin Autosports Rocket revealed at the LA auto show, Henrik Fisker’s proved alive and well following the demise of the hybrid car company that bears his name.

His latest work doesn’t appear to have a name and the cryptic message posted on his LinkedIn profile just reads: “A new design study I just completed for a Historic Brand… [sic]”

Closer inspection of the image posted suggests the car was created for the De Tomaso brand, which, by all accounts, went into liquidation in 2012 and its owner, Gian Mario Rossignolo, subsequently arrested following allegations that he misused €7.5m worth of government funds.

Fisker is no stranger to the coachbuilding world. Before launching Fisker Automotive, he and longtime business partner Bernhard Koehler left Aston Martin to establish Fisker Coachbuild in 2005. A coachbuilder in the literal sense, the company went on to create the Tramonto, a bespoke version of the Mercedes-Benz SL, and later the BMW 6-Series-based Latigo CS.

There’s no word on whether this design study will ever see the light of day.
