    Killer design, no surprises right there...especially the side shot below

    So looking forward to more details on the performance... That 600 bhp engine must be pretty pucker too

          Hmmm, I don't like it. I think the lines behind the front wheel arch which connect with the opening look very odd. Maybe they'll grow on me. Maybe it'll look better in real life when I see it on Friday, but right now I think it's weird looking.

            Rear doesn't look that "mighty" anymore, something is wrong there... I don't know, it is is too strict for my taste, they could have done much better than that... But front and side profile are as usual and typical for Aston Martin - flawless!

            Like the rear, profile is wierd, mainly due to the silver in the roof.

            Front is not good, hate the headlight graphics

              Impressive but there is kind of a Jaguar-esque feel to the design.
              Like its an XK replacement. It has F-Type overtones.

              I like it. I'm really interested in interior.

                Less pure than the absolute legend it's replacing, but it's as desirable as ever.

                I agree with that above, less pure, not quite as pretty as before, but more edgy and up to date. Interior please. Overall, this was desperately needed.

                Design is awkward from the B pillar rearward. Feels like a mix between the DB9 and Peugeot's RCZ.

                It is impossible to go wrong with the classic front engine rear wheel drive coupe proportions, however the DB 11 is plagued with fuzzy and unnecessary details. The rear end is unique and looks quite stunning however the rest of the car is a let down. Like Betty have said, I am not convinced by that line connecting the wheel arch to the side vents.

                  Echoing the prevailing sentiments: there appears to be an excess of superfluous detail blended into an otherwise classic Aston Martin silhouette.

                  It's not all bad though - there are some intriguing details and I think that with familiarisation the DB11 may grown on people.

                    Likes:

                    The accentuated, more precise flank creases. The rear-end with its' interesting 3-dimensional taillamps. Killer proportions.

                    Dislikes:

                    The dark strake, "floating roof" theme evident on the cars' A and C pillar bases. The unfortunate "open" front wing vents.

                      It's unmistakably an Aston Martin. They have used the exiting design language as a template and given it a makeover.

                      As other have said, it's not the world's prettiest densign or form, but desirable enough to get a thumbs up. However the rear doesn't escape my criticism. It's very busy and the silver pillars don't help.

                      Ok so what's the bet that those contrasting colour roof arches are going to make for a customisation element when customers are speccing their cars?
                      You could have them in black, body colour, metallic, etc to your tastes - plausibility?

                        Certainty.

                        The car looks absolutely sensational in the real life pics. A modern Aston, not some '90s design again. One of the positive standouts is the design of the front wheel arch with integrated vent on the side. Very, very nice.

                        So they are going to keep the interior hidden for now? I can't wait to see it with MB parts/quality control.

                          I just knew that the DB11s' front wing vents reminded me of another famous British sportscar brand and a styling theme that was implemented approximately 60 years ago:

                          Jensen 541 (1).
