Default Aston Martin AM-RB 001

Details are scarce, but serial production is kind of confirmed with deliveries in 2018. At the moment it is only a hype machine in my opinion, but if they can deliver on their promises this thing will be crazy.

I dislike it.

There is nothing about it that says "Aston". This could be anything from a Pagani to a Hyundai vehicle.

If video game cars are your ideal, then this is perfect, but if you're into Aston Martins, this is an anathema.

This is still a concept car at best. It will be street legal in only a few countries, if at all. And the primary audience will be for owners who actually do track time.

Sounds like Aston Martin is trying to get a piece of pie Ferrari is eating with all of the track only FXX cars.

Does the Toyota TS050 Hybrid look like a Toyota? Does a Porsche 919 Hybrid look like a Porsche?

Someone put on his contrarian undies didn't he. If you're OK with vehicles having zero links to their heritage that's fine, but that does not make you right. it just means you have an opinion.

Both of those are purely racecars designs for Le Mans and such. They don't need to look like the brand they represent because no one on the street will ever see one and need to identify it with its maker.

The Aston is slated to be a road car. Basically a Ford GT-esque vehicle (limited production, obscenely expensive, hyper halo car). It *should* draw at least some form Aston's rich heritage. Hell, the Vulcan was stunning and had Aston cues but in a futuristic application. I think either Aston went too far into the "new and fresh" performance look here, or RedBull had a bigger play in the design. I honestly mistook it for a Jaguar before I read the article (not that it looks like one, but that I remembered a British company was releasing a car on Tuesday). It's sort of generic good-looking.

We'll see what the production car looks like, but this reads more as a go-crazy school project than a product from the likes of Aston Martin (in appearance at least).

Much prefer the design of the concept, which is less(!!!) outlandish and cleaner than this. The back of the initial study looks much nicer, in my opinion. I admire the commitment to the 'form follows function' aspect of the project, though.
