    It's obviously not just you since they said it in the article you linked to.

    Thumbs up

    And the back end of the current Renault Laguna Coupe looks like an Aston Martin.



    How about a cheap cut 'n' shut, Mondeo at the front and Laguna at the back, for that authentic Aston experience without the price tag?

    Indeed.

    For complete experience though one must buy a fake Rolex to complement fake Aston Martin.

    Ford owned Aston Martin not so long ago. So maybe more appropriate to think of the AM as the rich man's Ford.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”
