Can a car be brutal and beautiful at the same time?
In my book, Aston Martin has built the most beautiful cars on the planet for most of the last two decades. The company never really crossed into “brutal” territory until the super-exclusive One-77 came rolling off the bespoke automaker’s hand-built assembly line. That hypercar, though, lost the beauty so ingrained in Aston lore.
With the Aston Martin DBS aging out of production, the company has the opportunity to replace it with a car that finally melds brute and beauty into one machine.
The new Aston Martin Vanquish appears to have done it.
