    I suppose it's a little better than the original. lol It was unique, I'll give it that. And it was very advanced.

    Well - to be fair, that thing was about as much of a departure from the brand as this is. Well - almost. It was still a luxury sedan at that point.

    So Aston Martin kinda buried this concept after bad reaction - it's just releasing press pics now.

    Wow....What more can you say? The thing is hideous and looks like a mish-mash of a bunch of vehicles that shouldn't have been mish-mashed together.

    Well - this isn't going into production. It's a concept. But I think it was supposed to have lead to a production version until it got laughed at. Apparently when it was originally revealed (I can't remember which show it was, but it was obviously last March according to this post), it was show the press and then removed from the show before it was opened to the public due to bad reaction. Maybe they're ending up producing it after all.

    BTW - this thing is built on Mercedes GL chassis.
