2nd Century reworking

What's New @ AstonMartins.com?

2nd Century reworking

The 2nd Century pages have been reorganised so that it makes it a bit easier to find the model you are looking for. If this works out as is should, the VH pages will follow in a similar way.

Revised 2nd Century pages

DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial

No excuses needed to tell you that we have added new images of the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial. The Spyder has recently been seen on the Concept Lawn during the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegence; quite easily the most desirable new Aston Martin of this Centenary Year.

The Sotheby Special, 70’s kitch design at it’s very best

The page featuring the wonderfully unusual DBSV8 Sotheby Special has been updated with new photographs of the original car. The Sotherby Special, with coachwork designed and built by Ogle Design is rarely seen in public so it was special for it to be included in the Centenary Timeline at Kensingtonn Palace in July 2013.

Lola T70 with Aston Martin V8 engine

This is not an Aston Martin yet is a very important piece of Aston Martin history. This Lola T70 raced during 1967 with a prototype of the AM V8 engine that went on to be used in Aston Martins for the next 30 years.

Finally seen an AMR-One

Having been unable to be at Le Mans in 2010, I missed one of only two possible opertunities to photograph the AMR-One, the LMP1 racecar that was just a little too ahead of it’s time. No worries, thankfully one was displayed in Parc Prive during the Aston Martin Centenary Celebrations in Kensington Palace during July 2013.

Centenary Celebrations Kensington Palace Programme

The programme for the Centenary Celebrations is now available from Aston Martin online. As was a co-writer and contributor to the publication, I can tell you how hard everyone worked to create a wonderful souvenir of the greatest AM event of all time

Get your programme NOW before they all sell out and your only option is to pay way over the odds on ebay!

And yes, I really did go up on a crane to take this image.

New photos of the spectacular CC100 Speedster

Loads of new photos of the CC100 Speedster Concept taken at both the design centre at Gaydon and the Centennary Timeline at Kensington Palace, London

The unique V8 Long Wheelbase saloon

Built 25 years ago but only now has this unique car the V8 Long Wheelbase saloon been seen in public. Now at long last, I can add it to this site.

A pair of brand new Aston Zagatos

A real highlight of the Kensington Palace Aston Martin Centenary Timeline, marking the 100 years of the company, was the debut of two unique coachbuilt Zagatos, the DBS Coupe Zagato Centennial and the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial. The association between the two companies began over 50 years ago and Aston Zagatos are always outstanding and sometimes a little challenging too.

Centenary Event, one day to go

The timeline Astons are now being arraigned on the Broadwalk at Kensington Palace. Once in place, they are carefully covered. Once unveiled tomorrow, it will become the greatest gathering of Aston Martins, the world has ever seen.
