Oh, dear...



...they didn't know when to stop, did they?

Not a gram of subtlety.

Have you seen an Aventador, Bentley GT Speed or 458? For a brand new car, this a paragon of restraint.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. MP4-12C got slated for boring design.

It got praised from me! Best looking supercar by miles. Also, as a consequence of it's restrained design, I think it will age much better than the horrifically fussy 458.

I think this ne Vanquish is colour sensitive. It looks absolutely hideous in that green and yellow but far better in red and classic silver/grey.

But remember, this car is produced and aimed at a global market and tastes differ.

From that photo it looks a bit too Jaguar-esque.

Yup, Astons are not built with Brits in mind - hence the show cars are always left hookers. It's all about the US and China.

Haven't seen the colour I'd choose yet... Maybe a more classic green than that one like sage, or maybe even a dark BRG. BRG with black accents, like an old Bentley Blower always looks very purposeful...

Am I the only one who thinks the interior's a bit, well, naff? The air vents and centre console switch gear look a bit ordinary. Perhaps they look better in the metal (or plastic!).

There are about 10 other threads on it wink

It looks incredibly classy in person - having seen it, I can't reconcile what looks bad in the pictures now!

Dash looks awesome in the flesh, I can understand some of the comments regarding the rotaries looking a bit cheap in some of the pics especially given some of the colourful interiors shots being published. In the right spec, the dash is classy and modern imo.

Seat wise, the quilting is just not or me, I find it a bit old fashioned but at a 3k upgrade I wonder how many would be tempted down that road...

At the unveiling back in may, I was on the fence with the new car, now I am in awe of it and want one!

Indeed it looks great in real life, but I think when you touch the controls, it does not feel as good as the controls in the current line up (see other thread).
