When one thinks of an Aston Martin, one usually thinks of something edgy and refined. And when you think of an American hot rod, you're thinking of something cheeky and loud. And if you put the two ideas together, you get that: an Aston Martin Hot Rod.

Unfortunately, this Aston Martin MK-IV only exists as a rendering. It was created by Benjamin McKee, owner of One Off Effects an industrial design and movie prop company based in Oxnard, California. McKee has always loved Hot Rod aesthetics and imagined what it would be like to be powered by an angry Aston Martin 6.0-liter V12.

Aston Martin DB9s have fallen in price, so McKee does not believe it would be terribly hard to get one – even one destroyed – as a donor car as long as the engine was intact. From there he removed the body parts and added his own to bring the creation to life. He said that his business is already set up to build something like this.

McKee's car looks a bit like something of a 1930's or 40's, but looks like something of today. And because he lives in Southern California, he knows that typical supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghini are a dozen. If someone wanted something really useful, they might be looking toward an Aston Martin Hot Rod.

I noticed that his idea made him sound a bit like the Singer Vehicle Design by Aston Martin.

McKee did not fully agree. "Everyone likes the singer," he said. "Let's do something that some people will like, but other people will hate it," he said.

What do you think? Do you hate it or do you love it? You can vote for the Core77 Design Awards 2018 here .
