Attendees can expect to learn more about the brand’s incredible past, explore their current range of cars and get a sneaky peek into the company’s view on the future of motoring.
Aston Martin is of course one of the most iconic car manufacturers in the world. Producing some of the most exciting and beautiful vehicles in the world, it’s not surprising that various different models have featured in several James Bond films, ‘The Fast and Furious’, ‘The Italian Job’, ‘The Last Knight’ and many other Hollywood blockbusters.
Founded in 1913, Aston Martin is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. The founders of the brand, Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin were brought together by a shared passion for building new cars which were faster and more thrilling to drive than ever before.
Today, the manufacturer’s vision is to create cars that aren’t just exhilarating to drive and jaw-dropping to look at; their benchmark is ‘beautiful.’ It’s this very vision that drives them to create the most accomplished vehicles in the world and which has secured them a place as one of the most desirable supercar brands to have ever existed. Their sports cars are, in fact, now regarded as a British cultural icon and they even hold a Royal Warrant as a purveyor of motorcars to HRH, the Prince of Wales.
Despite the brand’s heritage, it’s the future that shapes them. By continually cultivating their talents for design and engineering innovation, they create timeless, luxury cars that are adored by everyone. Fearless design, exquisite materials and the highest levels of craftsmanship make an Aston Martin an accomplished piece of automotive art worth creating, celebrating and preserving.
Renowned for its attention to detail, the design of each Aston Martin in painstaking. More than 40 hours are spent on the interior trim of each vehicle and the exterior is painted by hand – something which takes more than 50 hours. Speaking about this process, the VP and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, Marek Reichman explained:
“Design has to solve a problem – adding beauty makes it even more desirable.”
