I'm not ragging on you; I'm just disagreeing. Please bear with me because I'm also going to jump on my soap box.
This is just me and my opinion, but to me, the Evos grille is the one that is unoriginal and ugly. The Evos grille is a direct copy of the Aston Martin; proof is in the Aston Martin Vanquish. The entire Vanquish could be mistaken for the S550 until you get close enough to see the more defining cues that sets it apart from the S550.
Sure, Ford at one time actually owned Aston Martin, but since FoMoCo set Aston free again, I personally saw no need to heist anything from their former property which is now a completely separate company again.
Astons have always had some seriously ugly massive overly exaggerated mawes of grilles. Convergence similarity cannot be attributed to this because the performance values of such ugly grilles are not so awesome that everyone else is trying to do it. Convergence due to popularity of Astons cannot be attributed neither. If you poll the consuming public, not just in America, but Europe also, you will find more people who do not like the Aston front ends.
As much as I love how Ford distinguishes itself from the competition, especially from Chevy and Dodge, I honestly have to say that I would prefer the Saleen Camaro look over that butt ugly Evos Aston Martin grille.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but from this beholder, and I am sure in the eyes of many more beholders, the Evos is ugly.
No disrespect to the hard core Mustang fans, but the S550 has a face so ugly that only a mother or the hardest core of Mustangs fans can love.
