    Not as interesting or beautiful looking as other previous AM/Zagato efforts. This just looks totally Aston Martin with some tacky trim stuck on.

    This is where it was at :drool:

    See now that, and the more recent Vantage V12 Zagato, are examples of how it should be done. :tup:

    Wow I disagree with you both, those older examples are quite ugly and the new one is fantastic IMO.

    I think it looks great, so much more squat and powerful-looking than the normal Vanquish. Really like the rear too, looks very Italian, without the hardcore purposeful-racer look of the V12 Zagato's lower half.

    I remember liking the DB7-based models when they came out, but looking back, those are some long noses. I like that the rear fenders give an almost 1930's vibe for the blue car, and obviously, the rear-deck fairings are pretty fantastic on the Volante. They're a lot more feminine-looking than the harder-edged new car. That's appealing in its own way, and arguably more classically "beautiful", but I still prefer the newer car.

    They sold all the cars in under an hour and that was before they had seen it at the time it went on sale the only thing the buyers were showing was a drawing of the silhouette.

    Looks awful to me. The DB7 was the last Aston Martin Zagato I remember that looked stunning.

    Those brake lights are insane, the whole car looks like a really well mixed variety of subtle curves and flashy accents, I actually like it a lot.

    I personally love the way this thing looks.

    It's crazy what manufacturers are getting for "limited edition" versions of already expensive cars.:eek:

    Mouth looks too big (hopefully that will be remedied when license plates are on it), but the rest of the car looks utterly gorgeous. :drool:

    The coolest car in the world won't stop everyone from staring at your bald head.

    Regardless though, that thing looks awesome.

    Zagato is about as special as it gets though, at least to a petrol-head.

    That Speedster looks good! Eager to see the Shooting Brake as well.

    Because "Eww!" just isn't enough...

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (I multiplied it by 50.)

    Seriously; you've got one straight line on the car and you put it where the greenhouse meets the roof. Even Range Rovers get a curved line there now. But apparently acceleration is quite good, because the rest of the body seems to be launching so quickly that the diffuser can't keep up.

    That roof looks like it costs more the most cars available today. :eek:

    What? They’ve built exactly as many as they said they would. Coupe production is nearly completed, the Volantes are currently in production, and the Speedsters just begun, and the Shooting Brake will start next.
