If we can all agree it's proper fugly then we can get on with the proper business of watching its value spiral downwards towards achievability.

I think it's phenomenal,I love it :thumbsup: ,I admit the front is a bit Marmite ,but I love it , from all angles Its awesome very close to the DB10, if I had the money I would have one ,I cannot fault it's appearance, perfect in my opinion , I can only imagine what the later incarnations will look like , after Astons special project boffins get hold of it. Maybe an appearance in the next Bond Film . :driving:

I sold my 2008 Z4MC so that I could buy a 2012 V8VS last year. I adore my Aston and I am disappointed with the new version (most people on the Aston forum are too). Still, it should be a riot to drive with 510hp.Image

Yes, I'd have to say I'm not bowled over by the new one - but yours is stunning!

I hope it drives as good as it looks! :thumbsup:

Thanks, and she drives better than she looks; the car is really planted with zero understeer.

Is it mainly the looks? The price maybe?

I think Aston may have just done a few people out of their dream upgrade by about £30k.

It's too expensive and most people don't like the front end. Plus, it doesn't sound as good now that it's a twin turbo. Still, I think the shape may grow on. A lot of people.
Hopefully the car is succcesful, I think everyone can agree that we'd like to see Aston Martin as a successful company.

Agree with the above the headlights let it down a bit, but the rest of the car... is absolutely stunning!!

I can't say i'd move to the new Vantage unless they make something >600bhp for it, and tbh having driven the DB11 V12 for around 1500 miles, they'd have to make that engine a bit more exciting before shoehorning it in to make it suit the Vantage 'sportscar' ethos.

It is my understanding there is an Aston competitor to the McLaren 720s/Ferrari 488 series coming in 2020ish, so i'll likely hold out for that.
