"The Vantage seems simply a modern interpretation of the old DB4."
and i can't see what's wrong with that.
"Personally, what gripes me are the mostly homogenous jellybean shapes of the cars. Also, the interiors are usually very similar looking, despite proclamations of luxury and "progress". Indeed, Lexus has a self parallel parking feature for their LS saloons. And it has something like an 8-speed automatic; what Lexus customer is going to use an 8-speed automatic? They are probably mostly Asian housewives and prosperous accountants."
then again, lexus isn't the paragon of style. japanese cars don't have much going for them in terms of looks. On second thought, I can agree with you that the majority of cars are, well, ugly. and bland, which is actually a saving grace. doesn't assault the eyes. unlike this monstrosity
