It lacks the design allure demanded of an Aston Martin. Some of the detailing is questionable looking and the back has no AM design DNA. It's not awful, but it's far from great.

I can't believe what i read here. Yes it doesn't have much AM DNA at the rear end, but honestly i don't give a s**t. This car is my new wet dream, mostly in Volante guise.

Thank you!!! Aston Martin and Zagato have a very long history. Throughout that history, there have been numerous vehicles of which some were amazing, i. e. Zagato DB4 GT and some not so great (especially from the 80s and 90s). However, each and everyone of those creations is unique in that it's a great blend of Italian and British car design. Not everyone will like it, but these last two versions are just stunning.

I'm surprised people are slamming the Cadillac for lacking brand DNA but for the AM it seems it doesn't matter!

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.
