August 4, 2005 Fisker Coachbuild is a new company based on the expertise and growing international reputation of designer Henrik Fisker. Fisker has become somewhat of a celebrity designer in his relatively short career since graduating from the Art Center College of Design in 1989, having rack up a number of successful vehicles such as the Shelby GR1, BMW Z07 concept car, BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 and the soon-to-be-produced Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Now he has joined with another well known automotive designer in Bernhard Koehler to create a new luxury car company, FISKER COACHBUILD. Based in Southern California, the objective of FISKER COACHBUILD is to combine beautiful design with existing world-class engineering and the focus will be on designing and manufacturing exclusive high-end sports cars.

The first two FISKER COACHBUILD designs will be shown at the Frankfurt International Auto Show and some teaser sketches and close-up shots have been released to build the anticipation. The exotic Fisker Tramonto will be the company’s inaugural offering - a 610 horsepower two seater convertible with a top down 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

These high-end sports cars will be designed and produced in Southern California with world-wide distribution. The designs will boast all of Fisker’s creative efforts over the past 15 years in the auto industry and will incorporate a number of dynamic elements.

Koehler’s 25 years of expertise in 3D development and product quality will guarantee a smooth stream between the design and manufacturing process.

Production will be limited to 150, so sightings of the Fisker Tramonto will always be a rarity.
