No worries regarding the lenses - I was probably just not being very clear. Likewise, I wasn't comparing the lines of the DNA 250 with Tribute's offering, but to the original. There's a lightness to the original flowing, curvilinear form which, in my admittedly rather unsophisticated opinion, is wanting in DNA's (still quite pretty) offering. Compare this:
The donor's wheelbase and track are sufficiently larger than that of the 250 SWB that it tells its own tale by comparison.
No offence intended to DNA whatsoever, but frankly, your SWB, pictured in a couple of posts made from Stoneleigh (Tribute's design, unless I'm mistaken?)
goes rather a long way toward preserving - or replicating - the original bodyform and linear balance, no doubt owed to the fact that it's built on a donor of slightly more suitable proportions.
As ever, the usual caveats regarding my eyesight and sense of composition apply.
