This is the first of the new Aston Martins that I really like:

Rear 3/4 is a bit GT86 for me but the front is good.

The DB11 looks awful, almost like an SUV sports car it's so high off the ground.

The old Vantage V12 or Vanquish that is just ending are the best looking in my eyes.

Agreed - the last generation AMs set the bar pretty high.

This comment about height I thought a bit odd so, being nerdy and having driven a DB11, I looked it up!
Height (not ground clearance which doesn't look much) of a DB11 is given as 1279 mm - height for a BMW Z4 is given as 1291 mm. No, I didn't believe it either! Whatever, I don't reckon it looks like an SUV.

What are you on about? That’s all camera angle. The DB11 picture is literally taken from the floor and you can see the sky from under the car(if there wasn’t a mountain there)..The vanquish shot is taken from a higher angle so you can’t see under the car. I’m right so say sorry :D

There appears to be a lack of rake in photograph of the DB11 which accentuates the apparent increase in ground clearance. It’s not so obvious in the metal.

Not great pictures but they’re the only photographs I have to hand of those I’ve seen...

I think it may be a little higher on purpose as it's a GT car but it's too much to me.

The Vanquish ground clearance is 14.7cm but I can't find a figure for the DB11. I'll measure when I see one! :lol:

You are right it’s not all camera angle, it’s also terrible judgement and never having seen a DB11 in real life 😜
