Just received first round renderings from Hermance Design, www.hermancedesign.com

Very happy with them, some minor tweaking to come.

Any thoughts welcomed

Quite subtle differences between the 2 concepts so I take it that you will go with this general look with just the small details to trim etc to be confirmed?

Looks bloody nice in either concept

My thoughts are wow!! I like the bottom one with the dark bumper. Ties in nicely with the wheels & stripes. Have you thought about doing the door handles as well? Swap the silver with grey/black?

This is gonna be another sweet ride you've got mate

Thanks, Door handles, yes that will be one of the tweaks, or maybe flush handles like this GTR style?

I like the first one - even a bit darker would look nice and better still in a satin finish.

Love what you are going for here ...

Thanks, yes happy with general overall, just small trim, rear spoiler, mirrors in graphite, bonnet vents yes or no and if yes where, maybe warm up colour of stripes (they are dark grey not black)

Thanks, you read my mind, have asked Ben for one with very slightly darker tone.

How good do the GTR handles look! That style of handle would suit the smooth look real well. I'm liking the bonnet scoops as well

Awesome lookin renderings Rog, I liken concept 2. I've got the transparent smoke outer rim and was contemplating doing all my chrome,, bumpers etc in the same look, just a subtle change but will match in with the rims

Sweet designs Roger,

Youíve quite the mission ahead of you - but the build will be the greatest part.

Iím loving the black accented bumper look - and Aston door handles $$ but will no doubt look tops

Well I can't decide between 1 or 2 but I'm slightly leaning towards 1
As the bright finishers flow to the wheels, but then again so does 2 with its darker accents
5hite I can't decide! Just build a pair of em Rog as they're both frickin awesome.

Great drawings Roger.

I agree with Phil. Stick with the Chrome, Flows to the wheels to the Grille to the handles.

They might even let you into a chrome bumper show or two

The journey begins.

I was looking at the wheels. How would they go with a darker lip like the transparent smoke forgeline do? I went that way with mine. In the box the looked nearly black but once fitted they kinda change darkness depending on the angle.
Would take away most of the silver/polished highlights on pic 2 then & tie it all together real nicely

Unfortunately Phil I'm in the same position as you, still can't decide

Of course I could just have 2 sets of bumpers and headlight surrounds

I think next step is to do rear rendering with gray bumper to see how it looks
