Cool pics!

Interesting how each car handles the fender detail (grill, badge, whatever) differently. While the Aston's character line is more pronounced, the BRZ puts the accent higher pulling the line off it's bottom edge and running all the way back toward the hump over the rear arch.

I would prefer the Vantage with a lip, and without that seam on the front bumper. If the whole front clamshell flipped forward like an old XKE, it would be solved.

I know I am biased but I honestly think the BRZ looks better. It looks more modern and aggressive without looking cheesy.

Aston Martin makes the best looking cars. Just gorgeous. It's interesting how many lines the two cars share. I wonder if the BRZ/FR-S takes some cues from the AM, or if it's a matter of what makes a coupe a coupe.

Either way, both cars look good. (But I have to give the nod to the Aston. *drool*)

I wouldn't be surprise if Toyota designers use Aston/Maserati as bench mark for design.

Nice pics. I cringed when I found out about the Aston Martin Cygnet, which is *gasp* a Toyota!

That Joey's Hot Dog place must be the shiznit. It's like THE Hot Dog for fine automotive connoisseurs. They don't use that French's mustard either, only Grey Poupon for these highly discerning customers.

I have to still give it to the Aston here. The Aston is a 10 while the BRZ is a 9 in my opinion.

You really have to admire how the car looks so similar in lines to so many beautiful cars without looking like a cheap knockoff.

Aston Martin, manufacturer of the most beautiful cars in the world.
Someday she will be mine. Oh yes, she will be mine.

But I'd settle for the BRZ or FRS for now.

@Hanzo, leave it to you to never fail at posting great comparison pics with your BRZ.

You think there will ever be a chance to get a Porsche Carrera GT in the mix?

Mmmm, Aston.... *droool*

Would anyone hate on me if I got a BRZ and painted the grille with metallic silver/chrome paint?

I can honestly say that the BRZ, IMO looks more aesthetically pleasing then the Vantage.

It's no Vanquish, that's for sure.

Was just noticing yesterday that the BRZ looks quite similar, then here's this thread.

I think the Vantage's fender vents are real, but do they serve an actual purpose?
