Sad thing is I'm pretty sure those are real shots, but it's very possible they are game shots.

I agree, love the GranTurismo, but I would take the Aston DBS. Of course, it's significantly more expensive.

Here's a pic of it at Geneva.
Astons are beautiful, too, but I love the GranTurismo just as much, probably more.

The similarity of the tail lights is there, though not as much on the outside of the lights.
The Audi is squared off, the Maserati is more pointed.
But so what. Still a hot car.
