I absolutely love Aston's designs. I'm not sure if Marek Reichman is the DB11's designer, though I think he very well might be as he did the One-77 and DB10. Aston's design language and variations are in a different league when compared with other car manufacturers who striven to maintain consistency in their own language, but seem to not find any distinctive variation in lines and curves. I'm talking to you: Porsche & Audi! LOL

I hear that Marek spends much of his time meeting the international clientele and he personally spent time with the 0ne-77 customers in the "ordering lair" under Gaydon. (He's a figurehead with a team of designers) I also heard about a customer for some one-77s who turned up drunk to select the colours and trims but had to be sent away as his condition would invalidate the order contract. It's good to see them finally moving on from the previous generation of Ulrich Bez era cars.

Have they introduced electric running yet on their range guys? Burning fuel in 2016 seems so wrong in so many ways :(

Yeah, like put out those josticks man!

Unlikely they'll be repeating the Cygnet with a small Prius though.

The speaker looks well and beautiful integrated.

What a dumb move from B&O to sell the automotive business...

I not agree with this and certainly not a dumb move.
B&O doing this already a longer time and is not new (think Audi) and it is good for there business and brand!

Why? They got a really good price in cash which was desperately needed to secure the financial viability of the business going forwards. It also secured on-going royalties from the use of the B&O name ensuring B&O benefit from future developments within the automotive business owned by HK. And finally it allows the company to focus on its core competencies which is no bad thing for a business the size of B&O.

There must be Beoplay automotive potential for the company too, with more youthful brands?

They are yet to be exercised though?
