    Presenting Aston Martin Concept Design Study GAUNTLET;


    “The main goal of the Aston Martin Gauntlet Concept was to design a car which is technically almost identical to the existing production Aston Martins while defining a design character that outmost respects the impressive history of the brand and combine the timeless lines of the past Aston Martins with the modern interpretation of the existing styling. 

    This meant finding the coherent balance between past and the future without overlapping each other to fit the taste of today’s design definitions. Too much of the past would look “Retro” while too much of the “Future” would look unrealistic.
    I believe that Gauntlet matches these two worlds exactly without exaggerating. 

    The familiar Aston Martin proportions define the silhouette of the car while the rather aggressive looking headlights give her a sinister smile that excites you as you approach the front of the car.
    Wide grille makes a strong impression and gives the car a unique character. As you approach the back, round and clean surfaces combined with the inherited taillight design complements the existing Aston Martin DNA. Classic icons from the brand’s history like Aston Martin DB3S in particular served itself as an inspiration for some of the proportions and surface interpretation like the high rear and front fenders which gives the car its imposing stance. Subtle double exhausts combined with the honey comb structure above the diffuser add the car a modern impression. Small details like the side mirror, air outlets compliment the sporty characters while the line and surface structures of the sides profound its elegancy”. The name “Gauntlet” refers to the way lines and surfaces overlap or complement each other, not literally but rather emotionally. This visually suggests the feel of wearing a protective armor which its full power and potential is in control of the driver. ”

    Yes its nice, but still too conservative. Still the same design features, just some edges and cuts added to body panels won't do for another 10 years of AMs IMO.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Even tho it´s not an official AM design, I like it a lot.

    As for the official AM designline, I think  this is a case of sticking to a recipe they know is working.
    If they are clever, they copy the Porsche 911 formula and don´t try to revolutionize the DB9 / AMV8 concept.
    They can make line extentions with new models if they want to be bold - but I think sticking with a winning basic shape is a good idea. It may be conservative, but IMO it´s the only thing to do.


    Re: Aston Martin Gauntlet design study

    I love the Gauntlet design study! A clear way to go for AM!

    Aston Martin cars have a widely recognized, consistent and unique "Corporate Identity" styling theme going which is also accepted by a large majority of people interested in cars. They'd be crazy to depart from it just for the sake of coming up with something "different".
