I tried to like this car (seeing as it's an Aston Martin, and no one designs better looking grand tourers than this British marque), but there are too many odd and unflattering design choices that make this prototype unappealing to me.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist in this regard. I'll be quite content with a standard DBS Coupe, and I'll put the remaining funds towards a Ferrari 458 Italia.

That cabin looks too GT-Rish for my tastes.

That is one GORGEOUS vehicle (even with the ugly spoiler) Almost as beautiful as my Jeep J/K (obviously) that is one sweet ride.

I'm no fan of the GT-R's interior either, but the Zagato's interior bears no resemblance to Nissan's flagship vehicle. The Zagato's centre console is almost identical to every other Aston vehicle. Other than a roll cage, Recaro bucket seats and some minor modifications, there's no mistaking this interior for anything other than an Aston Martin.

What's wrong with it? Here's a larger example of a V12 Vantage cabin:



I'm curious as to what others believe is an aesthetically and ergonomically superior alternative to what Aston Martin has to offer.

I mean of course there is nothing WRONG with it, I just don't like the layout they've been using since I believe the first variation of the layout was 04, and then it really took shape in 05... So obviously not enough people feel the way I do.

Not a Zagato but I thought I would post these pics of two very different Aston Martin models I came across.
