MY SHOW MO­MENT

Auto Car (UK) - - GENEVA MOTOR SHOW -

I’d been won­der­ing who could hope to fill the ‘size 12s’ of the ex­pe­ri­enced, re­cently de­parted As­ton Martin chief en­gi­neer Ian Mi­nards — and in Geneva, I found out when I met his re­place­ment, Max Szwaj. We talked about su­per­cars, his love for As­ton, his long friend­ship with chief de­signer Marek Re­ich­man and his high hopes for the fu­ture. He struck me as friendly, en­thu­si­as­tic, mod­est and ex­tremely able. Espe­cially able. If I tell you that he ar­rives at As­ton after lead­ing roles in the La­fer­rari and BMW i8 projects, you’ll get the pic­ture.
