My only gripe is the door mounted side mirrors. Lexus does this, and I've never been a fan.

And yeah, this is a million times better then the Porsche or Lambo 4 doors.

Um, it's just a DB9 with four doors? Not sure what is so special about that.

Looks better than the Panamera because it has a dedicated trunk instead of looking like a wagon.

Nice job AM!

Looks much nicer than the Panamera. I still wish the trunk was a bit longer to better balance out the loooooooooooong hood though!

Yup...you also may have noticed the Lexus IS-esque C pillar.

True - but you knew what I meant. Mounted on a pedestal from the door panel vs. the corner of the window frame.

It looks good but I'm not losing any sleep over it. Seen it once, I've seen it a million times. Better than the Panamera but it's no surprise.

Aston Martins are beautiful, but having the exact same front and pretty much the same rear is a little boring. AM could have made it more special, if this is actually the way it will come out.

Cheers,

They took the exact rear off of a V8 Vantage and the exact front off of a DB9 and added two doors. I like the Estoque better.
