I like how the camo is the same color as the car. I also really like the new front, especially that chin.


I always wondered what goes thru the heads of the drivers of these concepts when they drive by a photographer like that, lol.

Not a fan of modern Astons. They don't have the cool of the DB5 and DB6. I'll make an exception to the DB9 and new Vantage, but only because they're some of the best looking cars ever made.

I think maybe the DB9 will have this same "cool" factor in 10 years but I can't imagine what they can develop to keep that style and character and remain profitable with the competition that they face (why, imo, we see crap such as the dressed-up toyota mini and the SUV concept). Don't really see it with the new cars.

And I can't imagine they're successfully competing on a performance level with the 991, GTR, 458, etc. That badge is getting more and more expensive.

Not sure where you any GTR in this whatsoever. This is a pretty car, a GTR is ugly as @#$%. Don't get me wrong, a GTR is badass but when it all comes down to it, it's ugly, and it doesn't resemble this DBS one bit.

It doesn't look bad, but the previous DBS was just so good looking it will be hard to improve much on it.

Nice.

Last tuesday two friends of mine were at the introduction of that specific AM DBS @ the Nürburgring. About 10 people from Newport Pagnell and about 10 'AM customers'.

The body is made of carbon and the engine will be a NA V12 with a bit more hp.....

Cameras and cellphones were logically confiscated at the entrance of the 'exhibition'.

The squared off back end reminds me a lot of the GTR as well... not to say the Aston is ugly... at all

It still looks like a very striking yet aesthetically pleasing design. I'm eager to see the camo get ripped off, although we can pretty much tell what it's going to look like. Not sure, but I'll probably like the current gen better based on what we can see. That being said, the new gen will still be quite a good looking car.

the previous dbs looks perfect. I don't think you need to improve on the exterior at all except add quad exausts in the back with a nicer finish and bigger tips (dual cheap exaust tips look out of place).

interior was also a weak point. interior layout needs a redesign badly. whatsup with the cheap ford steering wheel. they need to design a better looking steering wheel. maybe smooth carbon fiber and leather.

increase reat seat leg room to atleast fit 2 kids in the back. what's the point of having a long azz gt car, two rear seats, but zero leg room which fits nobody. very stupid.

performance. DCT, 600hp, and AWD is a must for this car. as a GT, it needs to be secure in any condition and able to put power to the ground effectively. the current performance is lackluster IMO.

The performance of the current DBS is lackluster? Dang man. Can't GTs these days just be happy being GTs?

Turns out this is the next Vanquish. Here's a video of it uncovered with the badge showing:

Typical Aston - lots of show...isn't their platform bordering on 15 years of age now?

doesnt bother me at all, nice subtle changes that make the car look nicer. Look at the 911.
