      Only two Latigo CS models were ever made -- a prototype based on a 645i and one customer car based on an M6.

      The car now belongs to a new owner awaiting his Fisker Karma:

      Don't care much for the front end but I do like the rear (despite the fact that the taillight lenses are ever-so-slightly not aligned properly).

      I want one.

      *EDIT* Just read it may go to the Silicon Valley Fisker which if I'm not mistaken is right next to the McLaren dealer about 2 miles from my house. Will do what I can to get some pics.

      Also I like that guys taste in cars.


      I did recently see this though. Apparently also 1 of 1.

      I would of thought the interior could be changed more, although the optional stripe in the seats is not what I meant.

      That is a 1968 Datsun 2000 Roadster. Datsun made 1600 Roadsters and 2000 Roadsters during the 1960's. It was known as the Fairlady in Japan and when they came out with the 240Z in 1970 (known as the Fairlady in Japan), the convertible Roadster ceased production. There is an enthusiast website for Datsun Roadster fanatics at www.311s.org (SRL311 and SPL311 were the VIN codes on these cars).

      Datsun Roadsters get a great deal of attention when driven around town!

      Being less ugly than an M6 isn't really much of an accomplishment.

      In the 20s and 30s, this would have been considered a coachbuilt car and become quite valuable. Only on the internet is it considered rice. Why? Because the internet can be accessed by anyone with a basic computer and an opinion regardless of whether or not they know what they are talking about.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      Fisker Tramonto

      I remember seeing both of these in the same year.

      The Tramonto was really well styled IMO

      And... it's one of those cars you just have to see up close and in person to appreciate it. Everyone has their own opinion about style, more power to ya.

      Obviously, if you like Fisker designs, it might work for you. If you don't... not so much. Henrik uses a lot of the same style elements, and some on the Latigo look like those you have seen some on his other works, like the BMW Z8 (tail lights), Aston V8 Vantage (hood), and the Karma (front brake ducts)

      In another thread regarding "Unicorns", we began discussing this car again. So as not to hijack or derail that thread, I am posting some additional pictures of the interior and engine here.

      Also, I was encouraged to update the Wikipedia entry for the Fisker Latigo, which I have started to do...

      Dave, are you still a director at Fisker?

      Most coachbuilt had way more that differences them from the original car than this. This is more similar to the S class-based Monteverdi Tiara class and the likes which are hardly quite valuable cars today. It can't be compared to the proper and today valuable coachbuilt cars of yore.

      Btw: I've also noticed how you imminently dismiss any opinions besides your own (see also the corvette c7 tread where you attacked). Not very polite. That you don't like this car don't necessarily means that you don't know what you are talking about.
