Ya they started copying aston martin last year.

Lol, they've been out for a while man; since last Fall. Gorgeous cars. The F Type coupe looks even better.

i like the roadster better than the coupe.

and i WILL ****ing own this car someday. i'll live in it if i have to. i dunno if they're copying AM or not but this is way hotter than any recent aston.

I would do different wheels though.

I was on the 401 with one this past fall, the balding middle-aged man was driving it like it was stolen, it sounded amazing. Beautiful cars.

From time to time I am in the dealership that houses them , RR, AM etc, they are very similar at first glance, it is clear who was first (AM).

It is basically a poor mans AM lol

well guys I don't know why you are saying who is copying who, sure Aston Martin might be the first, but you have to look at the bigger picture, the person that designed both cars is called Ian Callum, it was his concepts that first spawn the Aston Martin look, he than went to work at Jaguar designing all the cool looking Jags we get now, so basically no one copied anyone.

Blackedout95 03-07-2014 02:59 PM

Actually that confirms the designs are a copy ;)

You could argue everything is a copy of something these days. It's like anything in the world of design, certain trends gain popularity and you see such cues across multiple brands.

looking from the side..please tell me this doesn't look anything like a BMW Z8? LOL!

Blackedout95 03-07-2014 04:18 PM

True everything is essentially a copy but when the same guy redesigns two cars for two different manufacturers and they look very similar...I dunno.

Everything is either getting a more euro look or asian look these days. A little too hard to stand out now imo. Before you could tell when a merc or bimmer was heading up the road even if you didnt own one, now owning one I can still be tricked by a kia suv (X3) or hyundai (merc) or even a ford fusion stole the aston grill.

Apart from a super car or piece of crap, nothing looks like it should anymore :( Except the audi, they never change LOL I kid, kind of.

Go get a Z3/M Coupe for less than half the price and be a decade early to the party ;) lol
