Handsome but generic. Take away the signature grille, and it could be any concept car.

Why. What is the point of this.

It could be relatively attractive if it weren't for the stupid big wheels and jacked-up frame. Just make it a normal coupe. That said, I think that metal roof trim piece is awful and most of the details are garish.

Agree with all that. It's a bit of a disaster.

Is this still using the ancient DB9 platform or is an all-new platform? It looks generic and quite horrid.

Apparently the DBX will be built.

It is a good thing, I wish more different niche cars whether they make sense or not. In this case I think a lifted sportscar is an interesting concept. There have been many concepts, but nothing produced by any car maker. Lifted cars are very interesting, but this idea in not followed, and marketing is lacking.

Hopefully it gets some sort of redesign. The stance and proportions were awful on the concept. It's just a jacked up Vantage with gross detailing and giant wheels. Why not make an actual CUV or SuV to be competitive rather than try to make a niche?

Why always make what others do?

Because a jacked up Vantage with gross detailing and giant wheels would not be a great sales draw.
