    Aston Martin is likely pondering Charles Caleb Colton’s notion that “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. Nonetheless quite beautiful.

      I agree Mark. But the question is,,does it have an ejection seat ?

    Please explain the “6” hidden behidn the grill. It blows any idea of understated elegance out the door.

      An homage to the spirit of the great racing Bentleys of the past. Speed 6 #1 won the 1929 & 1930 Le Mans 24hr race. The 6 comes from the number of cylinders and engine capacity, straight 6 of 6.5 litres (397ci).

      I see the Western Australian Police had a couple of the original Speed 6 in the 1930s as chase cars. I hope they consider getting a few of these ‘updated’ models.
