Fisker will unveil it’s new plug-in hybrid featuring premium styling, performance and green technology at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show.

Fisker overhauls the exteriors and interiors of the Mercedes SL and BMW M6 to create two models, the Tramonto two-seater and the Latigo CS coupe.

"Our customers are connoisseurs who appreciate fine detailing and materials," says Fisker. To that end, he offers — gasp! — completely natural, untreated leather that is glove soft; classic hand-milled aluminum details, polished carbon fiber, and unique LED taillights.

Fisker just announced that he will also create his own high-performance plug-in hybrid sedan. He’ll show a prototype next January in Detroit and have the sedan ready for sale within 18 months — well ahead of any major car company.

Using his own vehicles as the basis for custom coachwork should make such status symbols deliciously cost-effective. Prices for Tramonto and Latigo CS range from $199,000 to $369,500, including base car. Hybrid pricing will be around $80,000.
