Best looking car... Period!

Current automobile that is.


The car's exterior jewelry includes a graduated paint finish and solid sterling silver badges inlaid with enamel. Inside you'll find Deep Soft Black leather (the same spec as used in the One-77) with contrasting silver stitching, embroidered headrests, and sterling silver sill plaques that are individually numbered (1-100, as only 100 models will be made).

Aston does build some of the best looking cars around and this one continues the trend.

I saw a baby blue one driving yesterday; sounds and looks great but those tail lights just don't do it for me. Amazing looking car otherwise!

Very nice, but I don't think it quite qualifies for best looking car"...period"

What about the 1930 M-B SSK or the 2001 Pontiac Aztek?

I still can't understand why Aston Martin would copy the front grill from the new Fords this year? I mean, they look almost exactly alike. Paying that much for a car, I would expect a little more originality than to copy a Ford design.

Best looking NEW/CURRENT car may have been a better choice for title.
A black on black Sunbeam Tiger ranks up there as best looking too. IMO that is.
"Looks" will always be subjective.

Read that most of the 100 Centenary Vanquish' being produced have been spoken for. Must be nice!
Around 335K USd.

Looking forward to seeing the Centenary DB9.






Using Fords grill style? Be more original?
Your're kidding I hope.

I guess the BH's area would see one fairly early. Not many 14' Vanquish in the states yet. Maybe 20 or so.
Rear light design is okay with me. A bit hookish looking but at night probably looks unique.

Newport Beach has a morning frost paint on the way. That should look great.
Red lion is a color I want to see also.

The Centenary is a perfect color combo.

As a brand, however, Aston Martin is head and shoulders above their closest rival in terms of overall brand looks.

I'd say that Aston is best looking luxury coupe.... and good old 599XX is best looking sport coupe, love that thing:

I've never found an angle on the 599 (in any form) that I find appealing.

AM makes the best looking cars in the world. My dream machine for sure! I still prefer the original lights on the Vanquish though.

Yeah, the 599 does nothing for me style wise. Aston certainly has a classier look, but I'm not feeling the two tone look. The original Vanquish is still my favorite of the current age.

I'd say a Dino, 250GTO, P3, an original Giulia coupe, a Stratos and many other things certainly stand out more than any modern design.
