The old Aston Martin Lagonda was an alien spacecraft of a car, more otherworldly in person than you can imagine. I didn't think I'd like the new Middle East-only version, but I think it's warping my brain.

The humpback is more bizarre than endearing, but the rest draws me in. Clinical and lab-grown and inhuman.

I fear it will never be as Icarus-like as the original, so groundbreaking in its computer tech that it was just, uh, often erm, broken.

Still, I can't take my eyes off this thing.
