The only thing that will make the Bentley better than the Aston Martin will be AWD and AWS. But is that increased weight really necessary for such a type of car? If the Bentley is a DD, probably, but for the occasion, the Aston Martin might be emotionally a much better choice.

Close ups, as the car is getting closer to production. Clearly RW, which is a bonus over the current car; but, unfortunately, also somehow it lost the nice proportions of the concept car. It looks a bit like a Mustang now (at least, fake Bentley will finally look more convincing now ;-))

The face will be the disappointment. The buggy eyes that VW loves to put on Bentleys isn't attractive.

I know it's highly camouflaged, but it reminds me of the now defunct Hyundai Genesis coupe.

A bit "Mustangy" without looking as sexy. Yes I know there is cladding, but I am not optimistic.

The Aston Martin DB11 will easily obliterate this for style.

I agree. The concpet coupe did look very promising (minus the bug eyes), but this somehow has morphed to average muscle car proportions, that fail to look as sexy or expensive as the concept car - or most Astons - did. There are also worrying details like the fake rear window extension into the boot lid (probably to make the boot lid bigger tor easier golf cub loading), but somehow the general shape/size suggests that the need to be a full 4 seat car with a boot overruled the designers....
