Aston Martin marked the launch of their new St Athan plant, the car maker’s second manufacturing site in the UK, with the greatest gathering of Aston Martin models including 28 special models worth over £65 million in value.
Aston Martin St Athan Plant consists of three super hangars from war time, belonging to MOD, now handed over to Aston for the creation of a state-of-the-art production facility. The occasion was also marked by a fantastic film which not only reflects the rich heritage of the British brand, but also showcases the famous British sense of humor:
“The vast, empty hangars offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase Aston Martin’s 104-year history in the only way its drivers knew how. Aston Martin Racing’s World Endurance Championship (WEC) drivers, Darren Turner and Nicki Thiim, along with Aston Martin Chief Engineer Matt Becker, had plenty of room to manoeuvre a stunning selection of Aston Martins. That is, until they got caught by the ‘boss’ Aston Martin President and CEO, Andy Palmer.”
