Bentley in the back ?? No way. It has those recessed 458 Italia lights. And it can't have a rear ducktail, since it wouldn't fit the Zagato 'look' like all the other AM Zagatos. They should have made it more like the DB7 Zagato.
+1 on all counts.
There are some things that are signature AM, like the vent on the side of the current crop that harkens back to the DB5 days. I think that this design is born more out of technological requirements, i.e. a 'solution' to an engineering problem instead of the art of the vehicle's form.

The car absolutely beautiful to me. Probably going to be $300k - $400k so if you dont like it you wont see one anyway.

I think its stunning and im really feeling the design language. I also like the italian influence in the design. Also looks more technologically advanced. They are taking risks for better or worse. Perhaps The AM marketing commitee decided its time to move away from the traditional british styling inorder to compete with the ferraris/lambo buyers who prefer a more ostentatious and "showy" look? Regardless, the actual production version will likely look much more conservative.

Def. beautiful.

Those shots are with the double projector in the headlights, I was told by the salesmen at the local Aston Martin dealership they are going to a single projection lense and will do that with their future cars. Dunno how everyone feels about that.

Easy. It's a pig's breakfast of styling cues. Overdone and devoid of any grace.

What the pics dont say is that it lasted about 46 minutes around the track before collapsing into a heap...!
