I think its a great looking car, but those Ferrari taillights married with the Ferrari red-ish colour and the Italian style leather interior doesn't say AM much to me. As a stand alone car its fine, great even! And i am sure it will attract a lot of young people with money...but still not sure...
Well this looks very Astom martin apart from the traditional Zagato elements, and given Zagato is Italian, well, a bit of Italian DNA combines. But, as pointed out, AM and ZAGato have a history of nearly 65 years together, and most Zagato AMs had some Italian flavor (icl. round rear lights), so there is some connection.
The Cadillac, as good looking as it is, is too generic in details. The new shape is fine and gorgeaous, but I'd keep a few "traditional" details (mostly around the grille area) to keep visaul DNA and then modify them with the next cars.
