Since we first laid eyes on the new Aston Martin DB11 we had nothing to say about it but praise. Now though, for the first time, the car has been spotted out in the wild and in a regular grey color, and we have to say it does look a bit outlandish, and frankly less the savory, from some angles.
Whether that’s good or bad is to be decided by the onlooker, but some people may fine the BMW i8-inspired C-panel, the extremely busy rear-end, and the fish-like front-end of this car less than perfect, now that they get to see it under the sunlight and not the powerful projectors of motor shows and showrooms.
Still, the peculiarities of Aston Martin DB11 can be justified by resorting to the old argument that it’s really a work of art, and a work of art does not have to be perfect. To this some folk may retort that the old DB9 and DBS, and the still lively Vanquish are also works of art, but they are extremely beautiful as well. In that case you can switch to the futuristic argument and say that the DB11’s design is ahead of its time.
