We've featured Samir Sadhikov on Complex before for his amazing Ferrari design, and made it clear that we thought he should be hired immediately. Alas, he's still out there flying solo and dreaming up amazing concepts like this mid-engined Aston Martin. 

We're imagining it with the 565 hp V12 from the Vanquish and the V12 Vantage S powering the rear wheels, and think it could really take the fight to the Ferrari 458. Yes, Aston would no doubt make sure it drove very nicely, but the style is clean and beautiful. It's fitting of what we see as the most elegant of sporting brands. 

Seriously, why hasn't some company nailed this guy down yet?
