    Will we be able to tell this new Aston from any of the other Astons of the last decade or so?...

    If they make a new model I want something that is totally new. If you ask me the Astons of this decade look too much alike!

    I saw a V12 Vantage on a DB9 body. I approve :tup:

    It will be called the DBR.

    It will look exactly like the DB9 with some plastic bits glued to the front, have exactly the same engine, exactly the same drive train, exactly the same chassis and exactly the same interior, except it will be tweaked to 540 HP and weight 10kg less than the DBS. And it will cost 200,000 pounds.

    We can hope it will be an entirely new model, and that it will be gorgeous. The DB9 is getting a bit old...

    Those pics look like a current Aston with a kit to me. And I agree, much as I love them, a little diversity in the current range wouldn't hurt, as I wouldn't really be able to tell you what that looks most like.

    It does look nice though, just not speshal enough for the 100th birthday. Perhaps that Bulldog concept will become reality. Or perhaps they will do a limited run of the original Bulldog, now that would be cool :)

    You could've just pretended you were continuing the irony by requesting a source, that's how I read it :-)

    The car pictured will be called... the Vanquish,


    Yes, really. No, I know.

    Either way, I do enjoy the look of this Aston. It is like the OP described it, it is sportier than the DBS, but it looks like it can perform on the track very well. I just hope that they call it the DB10 instead of the DBR(sorry Toronado).
  20. Does Venari still post here?
  21. I know a future car that within this forum will always be old. It's called the Nissan GTR 2013 edition.

    Why should there be diversity, everyone knows that Aston is the british version of what Porsche is in Germany. You build a similar car to the last model tweek the engine slightly, raise the price a tad for said simple moves. Bam wham, new car!!! :sly:

    Yep - but he doesn't work at Aston Martin currently.

    "New" Aston = VH platform + Callum/Fisker/Reichman body.

    Is it me, or does the whole cabin itself seem to be moved a little bit forward? :odd:

    In terms of styling I think overall the new car is great! The only thing is that the trunk (boot) line is much more prominent, unlike the old one, which sort of blended itself in with the tail lights and license plate area. Not a complaint, just an observation.

    At first I saw the front and went, meh. Then I saw the back and went, meh. Then I saw the side, and I went, yuck. But then I saw it in red, and I went :drool:. Glad to see that the voluptuous Vanquish is back; I just hope that they finally come out with a new interior. The whole copy-paste interior that went from the DB9 to the V8 Vantage to the Virage is just lazy. But overall, I like the idea of this car, and while I don't like all the angles, I'm sure it will grow on me.

    I don't really like the back end.

    New car? Well, maybe in the Stuttgartian meaning.. :lol: It looks as much new car as 991. Same old, but stretched and tweaked. It better be lighter than the predecessors though.

    In terms of styling, I don't really like the front end but the back end and the side is fine. I really hope the interior is something different from what we've seen. I'm honestly getting bored with the same interior in almost all across the Aston Martin line now.

    I'm pretty sure the specs will be impressive.
