Seriously uncool for me. I think it is the ugliest Aston Martin.

Oh, come on. Just because it looks unique doesn't mean it's uncool. The profile is low and sleek with those little driving lights and hidden headlamps giving a slight touch of techno-menace. And if the looks don't convince, just check the spec. V8 (big one), leather, and enough tech to keep a MIG pilot happy- even if it never ran, I'd park one in my drive just to look at. Cool.

Serious turd. Sucked from the day it rolled off the flatbed. The only thing cool about it is the pictures.

Wow, the votes for this are almost evenly distributed over all alternatives! Nobody seem to be indifferent to this.
Yes, it's unreliable, not sufficiently tested (it's not a good idea to let the customers do the testing), but come on, it was a brave try! The styling is spectacular. We like the engine. People will not think you are a cock when they see you in one. It has to be a cool-vote!
Besides, I dare you to come up with an Aston Martin that is uncool!
There aren't any?
Thought so!

Aston Martin V8 Zagato Volante. It epitomizes the decade from which it hails, but not what it is to be an Aston Martin or a Zagato.

Okay, I admit, the AM Zagato is probably less cool than other AMs, since it has not aged as well as most AMs, but still cool in a way.
Zagato is a "hit or miss" company. Their designs are either brilliant or ugly, but never bland. They are an acquired taste. They never play safe. Letting Zagato design your car can make it the most beautiful car in the world, or the ugliest.
In this case, the AM is just clay with which Zagato could play.
