    Yes, it's probably going to be dark blue. Both my wife and I love that colour. She wanted a Gulietta, but I said we might as well go for the real deal, even though it may take a bit longer. Now she's also set on the giulia.

    You can tell that to Lancia :(

    Pininfarina Battisa, a perfect mix between a Mclaren and a Ferrari.

    I'm getting a DB10 vibe here...

    I am with you on that vibe. Low front, sharp edge, battleship grey. It screams DB10.

    Also reminds me of the 2005 Ford Shelby GR-1 concept car, which, after seeing this Ferrari, suddenly looks like a brute.

    I've been looking at this a lot today: I think it's one of the best-looking cars produced in the last ten years or so. Much nicer than the DB10!

    Rather like the AC 378 concept which never made it to production (with obvious links!).

    If I might take a brief break from the supercars. I'm not a fan of Japanese cars, I don't find then that interesting on the whole. However, there is one I like the quriky look of, the first generation Isuzu Piazza...

    There's something pleasant about its look.

    AC was going to it take into production, but it never even appeared on their site. It was due to begin at the end of 2012...

    I don't know, I can't get over that nose. And I'm convinced it would look way better in Ferrari red. And that comming form someone who's definately not a Ferrari fan!

    I had a stroll around a few of them and the body panels were beautiful quality: you genuinely can’t tell.

    Yeah, a company called DNA sold the kits, but I think they might have got told to stop by Ferrari! :D

    I'm no SUV fan, but like the Stelvio, I can't help but like the design.

    That looks very well done. I hate it.

    Yeah looks pretty good if that's the sort of thing you want. Doesn't look much like the concept car at all.

    Article on the new AM DBX:
    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/nov/20/aston-martin-unveils-pound-158000-suv-aimed-at-wealthy-women

    ...aimed at wealthy women, it says. I am afraid to say that that won't save the company in the long run. And just to think about greasy little fingers on the backseat leather when Mom does the school run with the DBX... horrid, utterly horrid.

    As far as the rage of every single luxury brand wanting to produce SUV’s now, this is one of the better ones I think, though I wasn’t aware the company is need of being saved? Thought they were doing fine these days?
