Henrik Fisker’s back in the news and fortunately, we’re not hear to talk about buy-outs or insolvency or whatever scrap of bad news his namesake company seemed to generate on a consistent basis in 2013. Instead, we’re here to talk about Henrik Fisker’s involvement at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Yep. Fisker’s making a comeback at a major auto show, only this time, he’s bringing Galpin Auto Sports with him. Strange as it sounds, but Fisker and Galpin Auto Sports are collaborating on a fully-customized vehicle, a model Autoblog has learned is referred to as the “Ultimate American Muscle Car.”
Quite frankly, I don’t know what that really means, although it does appear that this collaboration involves Fisker, the man and not the brand that’s about to be revived by Chinese auto-parts company Wanxiang. He may have fallen flat as a business executive, but Henrik Fisker’s design chops made him a titan in the business. Remember, he was the one largely responsible for designing the BMW Z8, the Aston Martin DB9, the Aston Martin Vantage, and of course, the Fisker Karma.
Give the man some pencils and a sketch pad, and he can create magic. Combine that with Galpin Auto Sports’ well-chronicled expertise in aftermarket customization and you have a team that could be working on an explosive muscle car with the performance to back its “Ultimate American Muscle Car” claim.
Personally, I’m preparing myself for just about anything with this mysterious project.
Details are obviously limited at this point, but rest assured, the hype train will only gain steam once we draw closer to the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, which opens on November 18, 2014 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
