*Be Warned: The ass-end of this car looks positively divine.

Ugur Sahin Design, the firm behind the (still upcoming?) Z03 which was to be built by Mallett, decided to update Aston’s lineup with a design study called the Gauntlet.

Aston Martin Gauntlet Concept by Ugur Sahin 26 Aston Martin Gauntlet Design Concept by Ugur SahinThe intent was “to design a car which is technically almost identical to the existing production Aston Martins while defining a design character that outmost respects the impressive history of the brand and combine the timeless lines of the past Aston Martins with the modern interpretation of the existing styling.”

Here’s how I see it: a car like the DB9, but with a coach-built look and feel.

Trying not to be too retro or futuristic, the look comes off as clean and really appealing to the eye. Key features include those sexy, organic headlights, a new take on Aston’s wide-mouth grill (previewed on the One-77 hypercar), and – claimed to be cribbed from the DB3S – “high rear and front fenders”.

Personal favorites include:

1) brake-heat extractor vents’ lines flowing into the tail spoiler
2) mirrors emulating the sharp shape of the window surrounds
3) rear windscreen that’s been molded to flow with the roof’s lines (we’ve already seen it’s possible with Peugeot’s RCZ)
4) creased line down the side (in some pics) which makes the car look like it’s wearing an opera mask.

And, last but not least, the artsy/design PR speak: “The name ‘Gauntlet’ refers to the way lines and surfaces overlap or complement each other, not literally but rather emotionally. This visually suggests the feel of wearing a protective armor which its full power and potential is in control of the driver.”

Whatever guys, it looks great.
