Unique Fisker Latigo Is Much More Than A Coachbuilt BMW M6

If you’re looking for a truly unique-looking car to add to your collection, this BMW M6-based Fisker Latigo is just for you.

The car you see right here is a true unicorn, as, apart from a prototype, it’s the only one ever built.

Penned by Henrik Fisker, the Latigo was supposed to have a production run of 150 cars, but no other cars were produced by Fisker Coachbuild after car #001.

Based on the chassis and mechanical parts of a 2006 BMW E63 M6, the Latigo benefits from the naturally aspirated V10 engine that’s paired to the seven-speed SMG transmission. However, the 5.0-liter V10 was rebuilt and tuned by RD Sport in order to produce a claimed 665hp.

The unique sports coupe features hand-built bodywork made out of lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber. A set of 20-inch, 10-spoke Fisker alloys rounds up the revisions on the outside.

The interior is completely re-trimmed with custom leather and an Alcantara headliner and rear package shelf. Billet aluminum accents have replaced the factory plastic pieces in various spots. The seller notes that the rear window and shelf were replaced in 2014. There is also a special badge showing that this was supposed to be #001 out of 150 Latigos.

The car, which is auctioned by Bring A Trailer, has covered 23,000 miles in total, with the current owner responsible for the last 3,700 miles over his six-year ownership. According to the invoice from the original build, the initial price of the Fisker Latigo was $216,846 but this doesn’t include the cost of the donor car.

    I love how this thing looks. The front-end is a bit 2000-ish and strange, but the rear end is super sexy. Plus, it’s extremely exclusive and the donor car is great too, so it will be a hoot to drive. Hopefully, it won’t cost too much.

    Edit: turns out the highest bid is at $37,500. I was expecting a much higher price for a Fisker, that’s not just some random name. Lucky owner!

      Agree. The front end is a bit over-wrought, but the rest of the car is amazingly clean and cohesive. I actually thins the signature Fisker “moustache” looks fine on a Fiaker… but it looks forced-upon-the-bodywork here.

      And those bids are bound to soar… they always do at the end…

    • Cool guy

      Just because you worked on it doesn’t mean everyone else loves it! We all know you are actually Henrik Fisker! If anything, anyone who bids on this would be an ‘unlucky’ owner!

    • Yeah, I guess people got off by the looks and lack of knowledge about it. I remember mid 2000s reading about it in Autocar. They also had Mercedes based Tramonto.

  • Zandit75

    Well that’s one way to ruin an M6. I don’t think the Fisker front end even works on their own cars, let alone grafting one on to the front of this car, and that rear end looks like it could have come from an Alfa.

    • Ray Filetti

      Yes. Why are Fisker’s noses so awful?

      • Zandit75

        They need a revamp in design, that’s for sure.

  • AMG_Power

    Are the taillights supposed to be misaligned on the trunk?

  • TrevP

    I really like this. It’s a shame they didn’t finish all 150 of them.

  • Christian

    Denmark might be a small Country but we do know how to design cars.

    • pxsupply

      True that!

      • Christian

        No worries, that Th!nk Electric car was okay too, from you guys….

    • Hmmm but Fisker Coachbuild (defunct now I guess) is based on California and period report and test don’t mentioned Denmark.

      In fact I rarely heard Henrik Fisker talk about his home country.

      • Christian

        lol… And what does Fisker mean? :=

        • Lol just because he is Danes you going to say all his car represent Denmark?

          With your theory Chevrolet is Switzerland and Ford is Ireland then.

          • Christian

            WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT, I never said the car was DANISH? I just said we danes are great designer, now when he is danish… 🙂

  • jc914

    Looks like Fist-er is using the Chinese design approach. Copy, copy, copy.

  • nastinupe

    It’s still ugly… just Fisker front nose ugly.

  • Wow with all the cost the original owner spend, it seems whoever will win the auction is lucky, the fact that it’s unique and that’s enough for certain circles of car enthusiast.

  • Vassilis

    No thanks, I’d rather have a stock M6.

  • Salih Ahzem

    On those cases of special creations by a third party, I always wonder how good the aerodynamics of those bespoke bodywork parts compare to the original ones…

  • Cool guy

    Looks like your mom’s car
