What do you know, Aston Martin made the ugly grille much, much better. Not great, the styling still doesn't match Aston's mid-00's output, but I think this looks a lot better than the regular Vantage. It certainly has "go fast bits" stuck on compared to the regular model, but I don't think they overdid it. I'm just thankful for the body-color bit under the grille. Solid cool.
Any Aston Martin model with a V12 is at least a cool and it’s no exception for perhaps the final one ever.

Personally I think this improved the look of the base Vantage in some areas like the grille, but massively detracts in other areas like the black hood and aero bits. The parts look similar in style in some places to the Camaro ZL1 1LE, which is not a good thing.

So could have been SZ for being the best version of the 2017 Vantage, and it still is, but the factory rice takes it down a bit to a strong cool.

I’m just curious if any of the 333 customers have specced theirs to be any cleaner. Guess we’ll find out soon.

Ever since learning about cars starting in 1998, I rarely seen an Aston Martin I didn't like. They always seemed to make fabulous looking vehicles, even when the of-the-moment Aston Martin was the DB7 (which I actually saw in person before once). This Aston Martin is very stylish. However, I don't think it is bonkers enough to get an outright Sub-Zero. Its style along the sides and at the rear kind of knock off a few points. I want to give this a Sub-Zero, but I can't. (Strong) Cool is my call.
