chromed Aston Martin Vantage, mounted on a large boulder. I just stopped and stared at this glorious automotive sculpture.
I swung into the car park, noting the sign stating ‘Aston Martin Parking Only’ and parked my car in the VIP Guest area with the ‘other’ brands.
A large stone facade building, with huge timber doors located beyond manicured lawns across a small bridge over a moat awaited our entry. At one end of the moat, seemingly floating was a DB11; at the other was a stunning blue Vanquish.
It already felt very special to be here.
The foyer contained a concept of the forthcoming Aston Martin SUV, the DBX, a first for the brand as well as a Red Bull Aston Martin coupe.
Once again we were welcomed. This time by Jackie Irwin, our beautifully groomed hostess with a beaming smile, bubbly personality and encyclopaedic knowledge of all-things Aston Martin.
Now before we go any further, I must mention that tours of the Aston Martin facility are freely available, providing you are an owner or customer. So, it was a huge privilege for to get an inside look at the home of this iconic automotive brand.
