I voted "no" for now, mainly because no manual transmission and not being a fan of the front.

I think it will look better over time as special editions and upgraded versions get released.

I will still have a problem with the way the hood divides the hood and bumper, but I imagine the right color scheme and upgraded front will slowly make me not mind as much in the future.

V12V will become famous soon enough
I will see the car in the flesh, so to speak, tomorrow night at AM Dallas so I will reserve judgement until then. Initially though, I am not a fan.

I meant to add that no matter what I would never trade my V12V in on the new car.

Everyone at AM seems to love it! :-P Notice the silver car that they are panning around appears to have had the ASTON MARTIN on the back removed. The grill also seems to be the type that was on the V12 Vantage (1:02 of the video)

I think because they interject the DB10, it looks like they have a normal grill but I don't think so. The car looks better in silver, however, can't overcome the terrible interior.

At 1:02 the grill looks like it is solid - can anyone verify this? Is the entire grill flow thru or is it partially blocked off. I was wondering why they made it so big, I assumed it offered purpose - perhaps not. If not, really bad.

It's expanded sheet metal.

I am really loving the new design. The back looks really wicked and much more to the air management through the whole design than the previous generation. I like the similar detailing on Lotus and McLaren... Kind of a British hallmark of design that separates them from other marques (advanced fluid dynamics). British have all the talent and it shows.
