    I am with you on the soundtrack and the V12 but everything else makes no sense to me. This is even less of road car than the Mercedes CLK GTR was. The latest Schmee video really lays it out. The ingress and egress, the cabin space and most of all the looks. This is very much a Senna like car where there is a certain functional beauty to it but that's pretty much where it ends. I would also like to see how much dirt and stones this car throws up when driven in real life with all those negative spaces. More power for Aston for building this mad thing and to people who bought it but even if I had all the money in the world this would not be in my garage.

    What really surprised me is the cabin noise. Per Newey’s own words, it is noisier than expected. It seems you won’t be able to drive this car without ear plugs or headphones.

    Yeah that Shmee150 video while driving is incredibly loud. Not sure what requirements there are for noise levels here in the US, but that thing seems not enjoyable without earplugs. I still want one. :)

    Genuine question, where would you drive it? That front lip does not look like it would clear even the smallest of curbs/inclines....

    The car is said to have active suspension, so very likely we will see front lifter working when it's implemented?
    To be fair the clearance of this car is no crazier than the likes of Laferrari, P1 or AMG One just to name a few. So if those cars are being driven on the street around the world, the answer to your question seems to be pretty clear.

    If I were to take a dig at the practicality of the car it would be the ingress/egress of it. The seats are gonna get dirty fast from the shoes.
