    Only 77 will be produced at $1.4 millions a pop. A Middle Eastern buyer offered to buy 10 and was refused. AM changed its mind when the offer was $23 million or $900,000 premium over the list price for each car.

    No, I'm (sort of) with you on this one. It's an impressive looking car, but not a beautiful one. It has lost the sleek and understated elegance of the normal Aston designs, in favour of the Transformers / X-Men techno look.

    Still prefer it to the Lambo Reventon, though, which could well have been drawn by the same excitable, Batman t-shirt wearing undergrad.

    +1, This looks like an Aston on steroids and IMO AMs are too beautiful to be given steroids

    Hmm I can understand what you are trying to say.
    It reminds me of a Zagato version of an AM.

    ummmm no.

    I actually see what he's talking about. Specifically, the side profile with the double scoop looks a lot like a ZR-1.

    The point is, as others have noted, it's not necessarily all that beautiful a car. It does evoke the classic Aston lines, which suggests beauty, but it does have a lot going on. Probably too much.

    Oh well, I have never much seen the point in getting a boner over these supercars though. Even if I could afford one, I doubt I'd ever buy one. I might buy an Aston someday, yes, but it won't be this one.

    Ugly and sorta unimpressive. All these halo, ego cars are a bit of a joke. I don't think it takes much to say - here is a clean sheet and an unlimited budget, go ahead and make a car. A car like the Elise is much more impressive...

    I don't like it either[​IMG] I would expect much more of an exotic looking car for that much money.
