DB11

Well there was one of these in the Rotunda in my Club all week.









I've seen pictures of them in magazines and online and thought they were a bit meh. In the metal though ABSOLUTELY FUCKING STUNNING.

I see DB9s quite often and I like them in certain specs more than others but this made a DB9 look like a frumpy old cow, like the DB9 did to the DB7.

Very nice.

I agree - we got a good look round the Aston Martin stand at Geneva and came away very impressed at the integrity and thoroughness of the '11, especially the glorious interior. It looks so much better in the metal than in photos, especially with the roof rails in body colour.

The Fosse Way around my part of the world is a good place to spot these. Agree that they look stunning. The one that came past me full chat as we left a 30 MPH limit sounded rather good, too. I knew what was going to happen, so I lowered my window in anticipation.

Fabulous thing but far from cheap. I'd have one over  Bentley continental
Twelfth Monkey

That looks so much better than the ones in garish colours that the magazines seem to have been given for first tests.

I've seen a few already on the road, they are certainly a great looking car.
Stuntman

I've yet to see one, but I agree that the car in Jeff's photos looks very nice.  The colour most definitely helps it in my opinion too.

They had passed me by, but having read the group test in CAR find them a very appealing proposition.

Speccing one would not be the work of a moment - the interior alone has a mind-bending number of options. At Geneva, they had six recommended colour schemes suggested by their design department. As Twelfth says, it seems someone else specced the press cars.

Apart from the dashboard air vents.

Looks way better for being in that colour.
Giant

I look forward to seeing one in the metal, I'm glad to hear photos don't do it justice as I'm not feeling it from pictures.

Not seen a colour in photos yet that I didn't like - looking forward to seeing one in the metal.
