The oldest and newest Aston Martins in existence - and one notable classic from the middle - form a trio of models embarking on a whistle-stop tour of Europe.
As part of its year-long centenary celebrations that has included the reveal of a Centenary Edition Vanquish and airlifting a Vanquish to the top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, Aston Martin has set off on a European tour with its oldest and newest models leading the charge. The newest model in the lineup is the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish, while the oldest is the A3 from 1921, one of three prototypes built after World War I and that now forms part of Aston's heritage collection. Joining these is the iconic DB5, which was first built in 1963.
The trio of Astons will visit 19 Aston Martin dealerships in eight countries, and will be exhibited in showrooms as well as partaking in exclusive events. The tour kicked off this week in Cologne, Germany, and over the next seven weeks will visit Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and Monaco before ending in Paris.
