Sahin has now released his latest creation called the Aston Martin Concept Design Study Gauntlet. His goal focused on combining retro and futuristic designs without overlapping each other to fit the taste of today’s design definitions.
The concept features a wide grille, aggressive looking headlights and high rear and front fenders inspired by Aston Martin DB3S.
Presenting Aston Martin Concept Design Study GAUNTLET
The main goal of the Aston Martin Gauntlet Concept was to design a car which is technically almost identical to the existing production Aston Martins while defining a design character that outmost respects the impressive history of the brand and combine the timeless lines of the past Aston Martins with the modern interpretation of the existing styling.
This meant finding the coherent balance between past and the future without overlapping each other to fit the taste of today's design definitions. Too much of the past would look "Retro" while too much of the "Future" would look unrealistic.
I believe that Gauntlet matches these two worlds exactly without exaggerating.
The familiar Aston Martin proportions define the silhouette of the car while the rather aggressive looking headlights give her a sinister smile that excites you as you approach the front of the car.
Wide grille makes a strong impression and gives the car a unique character. As you approach the back, round and clean surfaces combined with the inherited taillight design complements the existing Aston Martin DNA. Classic icons from the brand's history like Aston Martin DB3S in particular served itself as an inspiration for some of the proportions and surface interpretation like the high rear and front fenders which gives the car its imposing stance.
Subtle double exhausts combined with the honey comb structure above the diffuser add the car a modern impression. Small details like the side mirror, air outlets compliment the sporty characters while the line and surface structures of the sides profound its elegancy". The name "Gauntlet" refers to the way lines and surfaces overlap or complement each other, not literally but rather emotionally. This visually suggests the feel of wearing a protective armor which its full power and potential is in control of the driver.
