As Aston Martin lately introduced the Vantage it met the onlooker's eye as
something modern. Unexpectedly!? It is a British car and these ones arouse
other associations than this, at least in terms of exterior styling.
Nevertheless it's recognisable as an Aston Martin at first glance. Means,
the car may be said to be a well-done amalgam of modernity and tradition, a
master piece of automotive design. Its pleasing look makes us desiring it -
and Ferrari, Maserati and Porsche certainly fearing a new serious rival. But
the Vantage's exceptional muscular-shaped body also tempted us to let revive
the Shooting Break tradition via image editing.
Combining a coupe and an estate car is basically doomed to failure, which is
why the results always were neither fish nor fowl. In the case of the AM
Vantage, it was merely child's play. It already bears modern genes as well as
ones that always excel Aston Martin cars and so the draft really does not look
unsuitable even though its side profile undeniably has a slightly Italian
touch. On the other hand, we have to bring up that our designer felt free to
pay not all too much attention to the vehicle's stowage volume which has enabled
a more coupe-like rear. No problem. Prospects surely would not care about this.
