It Looks Fantastic
I’ve had the chance to talk with Matthew Humphries before. For those who don’t know, he’s the designer who headed up Morgan Motor Company when he was just 21 years old. From there, he has continued designing cars and moved into watches. Recently, on LinkedIn we noticed that Matt posted a sketch of an Aston Martin Vantage shooting brake design.
Matthew said that Aston has a long history of making these types of cars and that doing so gives those cars “more functional quality whilst adding to the rarity and uniqueness.” This design that you can see above is Matt’s design. It’s a gorgeous example of what could be done with the Aston Martin Vantage. Here’s what Matt wrote about the design:
“The MHD design brief was to take a 2020 Aston Martin Vantage, add a 21st-century coach-built shooting break rear to the car, whilst taking influence from Aston Martin shooting breaks of the past and today. The design must integrate with the existing engineering, keeping the doors/ screen and rear wings intact as much as possible, and take the surface/design language from the rest of the car to integrate the design and develop a unique aesthetic.”
Matt has an MHD consultancy that is happy to work with all sorts of engineering and coachbuilding companies to help people get the cars that they really want. If you’re interested in learning more, check out the MHD website.
