Aston Martin Works is a division of the British automaker charged with maintaining and restoring classic Aston and keeping the brand’s heritage alive. They are the authority in Aston restoration, but their prices are often quite scary, as you can clearly tell having read the aforementioned figures. Well, at least if Aston gets hit by another financial disaster they can count on this division to keep the business afloat!
