100 Years Aston Martin
14 december 2014
The British sportscar manufacturer Aston Martin will be in the spotlights in Autoworld from Saturday 13 December onwards. Theme of the exhibition will be the 100th Anniversary, a unique opportunity to highlight the history of this iconic brand.
A new initiative of Autoworld in collaboration with Aston Martin enthusiast Paul Verellen, with whom we already organised “Racing Memories” in July/August 2013.
Thanks to many private owners we will show +- 40 different models on the mezzanine in Autoworld. Historic cars including a very old Lagonda DP 21/15 (1925). Racing cars and street versions such as the Vantage GT3, recent winners of the Belgian Championship (BRCC 2014) and a Vantage GT4 Gulf. Probably the Aston Martin DBR 4 Formula 1 (1959) will be there as well. Four different coupes with a bodywork by the Italian designer Zagato, including a unique DB 4 GT.
Other models that make the visitors dream will be the DB2/4, DB4, DB5 Volante, Vanquish and One-77.
Special attention will be paid to the DB 5 and V8 Vintage, the cars that played an unforgettable role in the James Bond movies.
Posters, leaflets, books and a unique collection of model cars (inlucing the Carlo Brianza specials) will complete this new initiative.
