Side note, Henrik didn't like the design of V12 Vantage sills. On his last V12 Vantage he had them removed and V8 Vantage original sills fitted.

I'm 100% with you. The Vantage is unbelievable beautiful from every angle you look at it.

That is exactly what is missing on the new Vantage - The Fisker touch.

I'm in agreement with this. Actually, I prefer the original design, bumpers, sills, and all.

If anyone ever spots a black 2011 V12 Vantage with the early sill, that was Mr. Fiskers ride.

you're absolutely right.. Most of the new gen astons have very poor lines. New DB11, New Vantage, New DBX , only new DBS exterior is ok, but Mercedes influenced interior is really poor. specially all those stupid tablet like screens(horrible)

I'd make the argument the earlier cars are even more beautiful, but you can't argue art or taste. Any configuration of the Fisker design hits a sweet spot!

Still love those Virage? wheels?

I have a DB11 and think that the design of the old Vantage is a much better looking car. It is a classic design like a Jaguar XKE a Ferrari Dino an AC Cobra or a 63 Split window Corvette. Iím sure I missed a few classic designs but there is no way that any of the new Astons can ever be included in that group.
