I'd never buy it and feel a tad embarrassed driving it but I have to say that's not a bad effort for a rebodied MX5, I quite like that

At least it's an XKR underneath not an MR2!

The recent David Brown Speedback GT tried to make a business from that approach. Never heard anymore about him. Frankly, this Aston look-a-lik is more desirable than that. And a good deal cheaper to boot.

But you could buy a DB7 for the same money or a bit more for an equally leggy Vantage. Think i'll pass.

I am amazed at how low the prices are. Running costs are another issue entirely of course.

I did think about DB7 but the Vanquish is in a different league and the running costs (of a Jag) thing plays in too.

That looks awful.

I've got an even better idea, but an XK-R and leave it alone.

That's a bit like having a pretty girlfriend, paying for her to have a facelift to look like Kate Beckinsale and ending up with Pete Burns

Claim it's a rare Zagato special by punching the middle of the roof in.

I agree: most Zagoto Astons look like they've been in a mincer. [/code]
