Fisker Coachbuild at the 2007 New York International Auto Show

Fisker Coachbuild will display its fastest production car ever built at the 2007 New York International Auto Show. The 2007 Fisker Tramonto delivers an astonishing 700 horsepower and has a top speed of 205 mph. Car number 15 of 150 will be on display from April 6-15, 2007 at New York Auto Show on the Manhattan Motorcars stand.

Beneath the skin of the Tramonto is a Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, a car that's engineering excellence is a byword. The myriad Mercedes-Benz technological innovations, from the power-retractable hardtop to Active Body Control (ABC), remain untouched – as do safety systems, including crumple zones and airbags.

Compared to its original platform, the Tramonto is reproportioned with a shorter back end, a longer-looking hood line with a pronounced power dome, and no visual bumpers. It is crafted by hand in Italy utilizing the best quality materials with carbon-fibre and aluminum for the exterior, and luxurious Italian furniture graded leather for the interior.

Handcrafted by a dedicated AMG technician, the original 6.0 liter, 36-valve V12 delivers 604 hp and 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. For those who crave even more performance, FISKER has teamed with Kleemann to create the Performance Plus package on car number 15 of 150 that delivers 700 hp and just under 1000 lb. ft of torque.
