Aston Martin GAUNTLET Concept by ugursahin1234 Aston Martin GAUNTLET Concept by ugursahin1234
Presenting Aston Martin Concept Design Study GAUNTLET;

“The main goal of the Aston Martin Gauntlet Concept 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.

This meant finding the coherent balance between past and the future without overlapping each other to fit the taste of today’s design definitions. Too much of the past would look “Retro” while too much of the “Future” would look unrealistic.
I believe that Gauntlet matches these two worlds exactly without exaggerating.

The familiar Aston Martin proportions define the silhouette of the car while the rather aggressive looking headlights give her a sinister smile that excites you as you approach the front of the car.
Wide grille makes a strong impression and gives the car a unique character. As you approach the back, round and clean surfaces combined with the inherited taillight design complements the existing Aston Martin DNA. Classic icons from the brand’s history like Aston Martin DB3S in particular served itself as an inspiration for some of the proportions and surface interpretation like the high rear and front fenders which gives the car its imposing stance. Subtle double exhausts combined with the honey comb structure above the diffuser add the car a modern impression. Small details like the side mirror, air outlets compliment the sporty characters while the line and surface structures of the sides profound its elegancy”. 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. ”

so.. is this a fan art or do you have some kind of work related association with the car company... if so, I find weird that they allow you to post concepts online like that. what's the deal m8?

p.s. great work as always...

We are an independent design studio which happens to present its own interpretation of a new Aston Martin, just like thousands of other designers out there. Aston Martin is aware of our work and we have an ongoing communication, no plans for a production or anything though. This is just a design study, if anyone wants to call it "fan art", fine by me, its just that i do this for a living and i guess that goes further than "fan art".

glad to hear u like it

This is the best Austin Martin design I've ever seen! The pictures are great, I'd loooove to see a night time scene with it's lights on though =)
