Had a couple of days in Geneva this week, one of them at the show. First impressions of the car is its big!....compared to my current Coupe. The rear is quite square/faceted and reminds me a little of Mercedes. The front is curvey with a large deep grill.

The blue looked better than the silver IMO and I prefered the 19inch wheels over the 20 inch fitted to the silver car (which is the same as the website car)

The interior is luxurious but again reminded me of Mercedes, even has wood on the dash. The Current car is more individual in that area.

The seats are V nice and the rears look pretty comfortable for an adult.

They had a GS there too which again looked small compared to the GT. Overall I really wanted to love the car, but it didnt give me the wow factor on first viewing. The interior is nice but the same as a lot of other luxury cars and I feel with the size of the car and the auto box, it wont be as agressive as my CC can be when I want it too.

There is more std kit on it than the Coupe, but as its at least £15k more - I think (£73k?? vs £56K current Coupe)??

Need to see it again when the first cars are shown in the UK to see if it grows a bit more on me.

BTW the streets of Geneva are alive with the sounds of Astons/Ferrari's etc, Bankers!

Thought it looks better on screen than in the flesh. Reasonable room inside for those of us with kids. Got a few pics, mostly me sat inside, so I'll just post this one.
