Largest gathering of Astons in marque’s 100-year history was one seriously valuable collection of metal.
Having completed the Italy to London rally on Sunday, a convoy of one hundred Aston Martins cruised to Kensington Gardens, London, to support the largest gathering of Astons ever assembled. Attracting over 50,000 visitors, the unique display of around 550 Aston Martin models was said to be worth an estimated £1 billion and included a timeline of highly significant models dubbed the Centenary Timeline Display.
From the A3 – the oldest surviving Aston – to the Vanquish Centenary Edition and upcoming V12 Vantage S and Vanquish Volante, visitors could admire the marque’s 100-year journey as they strolled along the Broadwalk. There were also displays dedicated to James Bond, with the iconic DB5 taking center stage, and motorsport featuring the Ulster, DBR1, DB4 GT Zagato and Gulf-liveried V8 Vantage GTE. A Centenary Selection display was another highlight, showcasing bespoke models such as the recently unveiled Zagato models, a trio of Bertone Jets, and the CC100 Speedster Concept.
