Maybe, some of you remember the design philosophy of Ugur Sahin. He’s a designer that we’ve already featured before, specializing in luxury cars (from the Chevrolet Corvette Z03 to the Ferrari Dino and Ferrari-599-based USD GT-S Passionata) and creating them even more beautiful and unique.
The Ugur Sahin Aston Martin Gauntlet Concept is the latest in this designer’s vision for world class automobiles. The Gauntlet, blends some of our favorite design cues into a wholly unique package that’s simultaneously sensual and brutal. Study the images and you might see a bit of One-77 in the mix, along with a dash of DB AR1, or perhaps you are carried back to the old DB3S, a car that Ugur mentions specifically as inspiration for the Gauntlet.
If Sahin succeeds in challenging the design philosophy of Aston Martin, we can at least hope to see the next DBS and V12 Vantage from this brand that represents the progressive movement of Ugur’s Sahin philosophy. It’s definitely earned a spot in any dream car garage.
