The Thunderbolt concept has a 11.6-inch curved screen from Panasonic
Renowned automotive designer Henrik Fisker has just revealed the Thunderbolt, a concept based on Aston Martin's V12 Vanquish. Fisker's Thunderbolt features a distinct carbon fiber body, a revised exterior design and an elegantly equipped interior.
From the outside, the carbon fiber body features a clean design with no visible creases. Up front, it has an aluminum grill and distinct headlights while the hood has long triangular air intakes and a large power dome. The rear gets thin LED taillights and completing it all off is a set of 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in performance tires.
Inside, it is fitted with an 11.6-inch Panasonic Curved Control Screen. The unique screen is not just a gimmick as Panasonic claims that the curved design reduces glare and reflection. In addition, the screen can also be adjusted accordingly to a user's height.
Italian furniture maker Natuzzi provided some of the specially trimmed leather surfaces while Swiss watch maker Maurice Lacroix installed a Skeleton chronograph on the center console.
A champagne/wine bottle holder is also present at the rear seats to help keep your liquor comfortable and snug.
Even though it is a design study, Fisker stated that if ever the Thunderbolt concept picks up interest, they will make it in limited numbers which will exclusively available through Galpin Aston Martin. The Panasonic Curved Control Screen however, might not be installed on the limited production models as it is still in its prototype stage.
