What does an Aston Martin mean to you? For me it's the ultimate in luxury, an experience, a car that turns heads, a pure reaction to beauty. So when I got the opportunity to visit the Aston Martin factory in the heart of England's racing mainland, just outside of Silverstone; of course I had to visit. The home of Aston Martin is a purpose built complex, where the magnificent cars are hand built, it's where they create the new design concepts for their future masterpieces of engineering and where I was in awe of my dream car the Aston Martin DB11.
Aston Martin has a wonderful history of creating luxury sports cars, where design and beauty have always been at the forefront of what they create. As they are all hand built in England, each car is built to a limited number, keeping the exclusivity and rareness of an Aston Martin, however rare they maybe, Aston Martin are not an exclusive brand, they are inclusive and appeal to a wide variety of us.
Aston Martin has a elegance about each and everyone of their cars, unlike some of their major competitors which rely on shock and awe. Aston's have an underlying beauty that has transcended through time with everything in proportion as nature intends. A car designed to be as streamlined through the air as a shark is through water.
Being a hand built car and not mass produced, gives each Aston Martin a unique has a finger print, it may be a slight difference in the stitching or the leather grain but that's what you get for hand made and hand crafted - it's all for the love of beauty and setting standards to which others will admire.
I would love to see how you would design and configure your own Aston Martin DB11, mine is below.
