Giant circles reminiscent of the on the VW GTi a little.

The way the front centers the grill is a thing of beauty, a little circle of white in the grill.

The rear end reminds me of the old Porsches, and the circular rear are the perfect touch. I am a little by the looks of this thing as you can tell.

It is now my favorite looking car on the road, the Aston Martin DB9 . I never that phrase would come out of my mouth#8230;
