NEW ASTON DEALERSHIP OPENS IN FINE STYLE
ASTON MARTIN HAS OPENED its latest new dealership in the UK. Aston Martin Bristol, part of the Dick Lovett group, launched in September and will serve the South West and Wales.
The purpose-built 2500-square-metre facility, located close to Junction 17 of the M5, features a 25-car showroom for new and pre-owned Astons and a separate lounge where customers can tailor their new car with ‘Q by Aston Martin’. The dealership also has a dedicated aftersales team and a ten-bay workshop staffed by Gaydon-trained technicians.
The showroom opening was attended by over 400 owners and enthusiasts, along with key members of the Aston Martin senior executive team. President and CEO Dr Andy Palmer performed the opening ceremony. ‘We are excited to be working with new partner Dick Lovett, who share our passion for Aston Martin,’ Palmer told the assembled throng.
It’s been an exciting year for the Dick Lovett group, which is celebrating 50 years in business. MD Lynn Campbell commented: ‘It was great to see so many owners here this evening. The opening of our new state-of-the-art facility, in our 50th year, has made 2016 a fantastic year.
‘The facility has been uniquely designed and reflects Aston Martin’s core design philosophy and craftsmanship. We are dedicated to providing new and existing Aston Martin owners with a service which surpasses their expectations.’
The display of vehicles at the opening event certainly exceeded expectations, with the new DB11 on show along with the stunning Vanquish Zagato and the Aston Martin Racing #99 V8 Vantage GTE. More at bristol.astonmartindealers.com
