    Go back to BUILDING a GENTLEMENS GT , These pocket rockets and Carbon looks terrible.
    These cars are terrible.
    Please , lets put millennials to the side ad build cars for 45 to 75 year olds……...Believe me a lot more GRAND DAUGHTERS WILL APEAR in the passenger seats again! :)

    AM have been bust more times than most of us have changed our socks. If they go again now, it will not be the end, just another chapter.

    Not without precedent. AM's most glorious period was when its cars first sported the initials DB.

    The grand daughters in the passenger seat is a pretty picture, especially since I have 5 going on 6.

    I'm not sure what an appropriate business plan for performance cars would be today... personnally I'd like an affordable Pagani or Koenigsegg (focussing on customers really passionate about cars - and not chasing high production numbers, but with prices compatible with mere mortals capabilities).

    fair point

    Mimran family and Lamborghini come to mind as well.

    but times, and regulations, were simpler back then...

    If Aston could come out of this with their integrity and autonomy intact. But the chauvinist in me doesn't like the idea.
