Yes since the Japanese and Chinese are such paragons of automotive design right.
Nobody said anything about them designing the car. AML just want them to buy the damn thing

What I don't understand is why new cars can't be designed to beautiful without the forced styling of the Gen 2 Vantage. Its not just Aston Martin who have forgotten what to do, look at this from Ferrari, no active aero, wings, diffusers, under trays, just beauty whilst an F12 is horrid in comparison

The designer of this car started with the same blank piece of paper as the designer of the Gen 2, one is stunning, one is not. Modern safety requirements have not influenced the design of the Gen 2, the spitters and grille look like they would remove your lower legs
I'm a serial Aston Martin buyer and just want classically styled, beautiful cars again, perhaps that's too much to ask?

Have you seen the new vantage in the flesh? Unless you have, I would reserve judgement.

Yes, its fantastic. All you delicate flowers were so right to be upset by my opinion, what was I thinking?

I bow to you all
