Henrik Fisker must be having a great time right now. Set to launch his next automotive endeavor, the famed car designer is slowly teasing out information about his latest and greatest. Today's revelation? Super-slick doors.

We're all familiar with non-traditional car doors. You've got suicide doors, scissor doors, gullwings, stuff of that ilk. Fisker's adding a new one to the list -- butterfly doors. According to the picture posted on his Twitter, both doors are hinged to open vertically, but they oppose one another, for a mixture of scissor and suicide doors.

They look pretty cool, although one might suffer a bump or two leaning over to get into the back seat. The picture also gives us a closer look at some of the car's exterior design elements, like the thin taillights that rest under an integrated lip spoiler. The front end looks...weird. I'll just leave it at that.

Fisker's tweet also promises that we'll learn more about his car next week. For now, we do know that the car will be electric. In fact, Fisker promised that it would have the longest range of any electric car in the world, which is a pretty tall order. As with his previous effort, the Fisker Karma, I can't imagine this car will be super-affordable.

If you're not familiar with old Henrik, you've probably seen his work. As a car designer, he was responsible for the BMW Z8 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, among others.
