Created by Samir Sadikhov, the Aston Martin DBC concept below channels a bit of Jaguar CX-75, but in a good way. The headlights don’t have enough punch to scare anyone, if you ask me, but let’s find out more details after the break.
The silhouette may make one think of McLaren, while the width is all Ferrari to me and the Aston Martin DBC sounds like a very solid AMG rival. One can only wonder why the One-77 doesn’t look anything like this and Aston Martin should check this out and hire Samir. We’re dealing with a mid engined layout here, that’s certainly a change from the current approach.
The designer wanted to create a car that would be easy to carry into a production model. I can imagine this as a V12 monster, maybe with the Vantage S engine on board, but in the middle area. What’s important to notice here is that we get very discrete wings and probably a rounded back that’s a bit too rounded for my taste. Also this Aston Martin render is sort of a “big butt” car compared to other modern supercars….
