    For the first time an Aston Martin, car, albeit a concept, has an all-electric powertrain instead of pistons. The Brit carmaker says the all-wheel-drive DBX Concept is "a thought starter... that envisages a world where luxury GT travel is not only stylish and luxurious, but also more environmentally responsible." Marketing buzz aside, the DBX is definitely packed with interesting tech. It has drive-by-wire electric steering, toughened, "auto-dimming" windows, heads-up displays, Tesla-like in-wheel motors and the piece de resistance, lithium-sulfur batteries.

    ^^ I agree. That looks more Chrysler Crossfire than Aston Martin.

    I'm also thinking non AM car here, the hood line must be packing all the batteries up front. Makes me think pandering for the incentive money versus practicality. The hood line reminds me of the late eighties Ferrari GTO, pedestrian and USA mandated height.

    We must...We must...increase our boost
