I like it, but I don't love it. It's too similar to all the other Astons, which is a good and bad thing. There's no diversity; not enough styling differences. I also think it's a tad bit too long.

I think Aston should focus on making a shorter wheel base car much like the V8 Vantage. Now that's an Aston I'd buy. I think it's the best looking too; The DB9 is too soft (but still beautiful), the DBS is too...un-Aston, and this looks too...family...ish.

I'm sure it'll sell like hotcakes, but right now I wanna see the new Vanquish successor.

I think the Rapide is in desperate need of a character line that runs along the shoulder of the car like the AMV8 as well. That's a lot of side going on without enough detail. If it sounds like I think it's ugly then that's not what I mean lol.

I find myself agreeing with you yet again lol.

- It has DB9 front and AMV8 rear. Not exactly original.

- It's too long.

- I agree that the AMV8 looks best in the range. The DB9 looks great but there's something about the AMV8 that looks better. Small changes like the bootlid are nicer compared to the DB9. It has a sharper design. The DB9 is slightly more vague.

- I also agree about the DBS. It's easy to get caught up with such an extreme Aston, but when you see it after a while you start thinking wtf. Some of the details are tacky/cheap.

- I agree on Vanquish successor. I wanna see that!!!

They are nice cars but damn is their styling department the laziest SOBs in the world (Porsche comes a close second)

Astons should only have two doors. Period.

Maybe I'm just a hater.
