You can definitely see some transitional cues between that old Vantage and the new generation - DB7, Vantage, etc.

This apparently is much more similar to the DB7 (perhaps a good source of inspiration for the final production DB7), but interestingly is from Pininfarina.

If you're going to post something on a car forum, you could at least learn how to spell the companies and cars you're going to talk about.

hyandai = Hyundai
Tiberion = Tiburon

I think the stance and the panel fit are a bit weird, but over all I like what they were trying to do with it.

Thought I might as well post this here too, a little bit of info:

Three Aston Martin Vantage Special Series II were designed and made by Aston Martin's Special Project Team in 1998. I think (not 100% sure) these cars had the following chassisnumbers: #70508, #70509 and #70510.
The Series II had a 600 BHP engine, wich could the car up to 190 MPH (in theory 205 MPH was possible). And then the design: I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. I think they look brilliant !


While the Series II were not even finished yet, the Special Projects Team allready started making three Aston Martin Vantage Special Series III's. Three chassis' were gathered: #705011, #705012 and #70091 and the body shells were created. The cars were ready to be finished, but at that moment the Brunei crisis started. The project was cancelled by the Brunei Royal Family just before they could be completed. Unfortunately the three Series III cars were destroyed, because of the contract that promised absolute exclusivity to Prince Jefri (no one other than him could own these cars) .

Not that bad looking of a car, the rear reminds me of FD3S series of Mazda RX7s.
