To help build the buzz around the reveal of their new concept, the Thunderbolt, Aston Martin has brought in former designer, Fisker Automotive founder, and auto enthusiast Henrik Fisker. Currently just staged as a design study, the Fisker-approved Thunderbolt is actually based on the Aston Martin Vanquish, but with an overall lowered ride height (by 15mm), a reworked carbon fiber body, a newly designed grille, roofline, and raked rear windscreen. Other key changes include redesigned LED taillights, a large power dome, a slick new trunk-mounted spoiler, and triangular air intakes. The sleek styling continues into the cabin with a high-resolution, 11.6-inch Panasonic Curved Control Screen immediately drawing the eye complemented nicely with specially-trimmed leather surfaces from Italy's Natuzzi. Rounding out the luxury factor, a Skeleteon chronograph has been integrated into the dash while a champagne/wine bottle holder has been built into the back arm rests. How high-brow is that? Set up for an extremely limited number into production based on special orders, seem more of what Fisker and Aston Martin have been up to after the click.
