The Aston Martin Thunderbolt is a one-off design study vehicle brought to life by esteemed automobile designer Henrik Fisker and based on the Aston Martin Vanquish. This vehicle made its debut at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance and features an incredibly luxurious interior complete with a futuristic infotainment system and gorgeous carbon fiber body panels.

Some of the eye-catching design cues on the Aston Martin Thunderbolt include its power dome and elongated triangular air intakes that feed the V12 motor.

Inside, Fisker brings together classic luxury cues with ultra-modern infotainment and connectivity systems including a prototype curved screen, 11.6-inch Panasonic infotainment system and a sleek Skeleton chronograph -- all surrounded by plush leather courtesy Italian furniture company Natuzzi.

With its supremely elegant exterior and luxurious interior, the Aston Martin Thunderbolt is quite the showpiece. While it's a design study vehicle, let's hope that it inspires production vehicles of the same ilk.
