My new AM has arrived!

Picked up my new DBS Superleggera today. Ordered it way back in May and can't believe it but it's finally arrived. I've only put 30 miles on it, then dropped it off to get paint correction (paint is actually pretty good on it... much better than Ferraris and some of the new Porsches...), full body film protection, and ceramic coating. First (second?) impressions... phenomenal GT. I haven't driven a car that's put such a big grin on my face at all times. The interior could be newer/more innovative like the new Continental GT, but I got used to everything pretty quickly and love the whole package.

Thanks all!

That's my 575 Superamerica beside it. I'll take some pictures of the interior (and rear) of the DBS when I pick it up from the shop doing the film and coating on Monday.

I'm generally not a big fan of all that mesh on the front grille (ala the new Vantage), but it actually works quite well on the DBS Superleggera. Visually, it seems to mold in nicely with a nod to that boss muscle car look. Me likey! Hope you enjoy for many years to come. Oh yeah, great color!

Congratulations on the DBS! Your 575 is gorgeous as well; blue is absolutely perfect for a Maranello.

Aston got it right with the DBS design for sure. Big grill? Yes, but balanced with the right size headlights and hood vents, etc. and it works.

Congrats, look forward to spotting that one tooling around the absolutely GARBAGE roads we now suffer through in San Francisco (if that's where you plan on driving it).

They did get this design right (in my opinion). Pre public release, I saw it side by side with a Vanquish Zagato and that was enough to sell me on it. We're actually moving to the Peninsula this month, so it won't have to suffer the garbage roads of San Francisco, thankfully
