Aston Martin Zagato - Wow

Wow this is stunning. So brutal, I hope that this is the start of a new Aston design language. Based on the V12 Vantage.

Interesting, looks like the culmination of better bits of many cars. I see a little Italian in there somewhere...

Zagato is a design house (like Pininfarina), this was not designed by Aston Martin.

YUCK.. I'm a big V8 Vantage fan. But this destroys the clean Aston look.

No offense but it looks like it is trying to take a poop and having trouble.

I think it looks like a modernised DB4 Zagato, which was a brutal looking car, Aston's are supposed to be butch, manly cars, let poofs and women drive Ferrari's.

The back end and roofline seem to have a bit of a painful effect on the eyes, but it's got some potential.

One of the chairmen at my previous job has a zagato. You can tell by looking @ the "double bubble" roofline. Zagato signature. If this is real, you can expect probably a very limited run. Last DB7 was limited to 99 (+1 for the museum I think-and only 6 made it to the US) :O
