Ah, who am I kidding? If I were to inexplicably find the keys to this car under my Christmas tree I'd probably be on the "Naughty List" even before Boxing Day.

Also, that's not a real car. Not yet, anyway. It's a mid-engined Aston Martin, called the DBC, and it's only a design concept at this point -- the work of industrial designer Samir Sadikhov. Samir has a full gallery of DBC images you can drool over, but there are several other interesting projects on his site, too. Things like other supercars, race cars, luxury cars, a couple of not-your-ordinary SUVs and even a private jet, so you might want to click around in his portfolio (and his design blog) for a few minutes while you're there.

I think the DBC is an exceptionally good-looking concept. This would be something completely different for Aston Martin, too. They haven't really thrown around the idea of a mid-engined car since the Bulldog Concept in 1980. I guess we can only hope that someone from the Aston Martin design studio is paying attention to the DBC Concept sketches.
