An Aston In Name Only

DTM gets a Merc replacement, in a roundabout way... Aston Martin saves the DTM. It would have been easy to reach that conclusion when it was announced, in October, that the British marque will be on the grid of the German-based touring car series in 2019 (after Mercedes’ withdrawal). It’s not quite right, however. There will be cars resembling Aston Martin Vantages, and badged to that effect, in...

Art and memorabilia: November 2018

Featured artist - Jeremy Dickinson Want your lavishly restored classic made into a play-worn toy? This is your man Classic car collectors pay large sums to have their precious metal returned to new-born perfection. It’s a surprise, then, to hear that some pay Jeremy Dickinson to bash around their precious metal. Not in ‘the flesh’, but in paint, visually turning a priceless Aston Martin into one...

Kaaimans

Classic cars, racing replicas and potent new off-roaders Car showrooms don’t come much grander than the one you’ll find at Kaaimans – it’s part of 300-year-old Tollerton Hall, a 20,000 square foot stately home outside Nottingham that’s owned (and lived in) by local businessman and lifelong automobile fanatic Ian Kershaw. Established last year, the Kaaimans dealership grew out of Kershaw’s ever-...

Elegance as an art form

Aston Martin's beautiful DB4 GT is always a rarity, particularly in this instance Few would argue that the Aston Martin DB4 GT is one of the best looking, best performing and most desirable classic road cars the company has ever produced. With just 75 originally built and offering a genuine 150mph top speed and considerably improved handling over the standard, longer, heavier DB4, it provided...

The world's richest race

The opener for this year’s Goodwood Revival featured perhaps the most valuable grid ever assembled, racing flat out into the sunset GRAND TOTAL: £119.75m* It’s an odd feeling, getting a sort of snow-blindness seeing the entry list. On any other grid something like a Ferrari 250 SWB would stand out like a sore thumb, but when there’s 10 of them, a GTO or two and a swathe of Aston Martins, Jaguars...

Repeats, repeats...

Aston Martin pledges to continue with its continuations Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer has confirmed the company intends to create a new ‘heritage’ model every year in future. Following the success of the new run of DB4 GTs and Goldfinger DB5s, Palmer told Motor Sport that there were more than enough cars with sufficient cachet for an annual batch of continuations to be sustainable indefinitely...

Nicholas Mee

Why leaving London behind has been of benefit It is fair to say that Nicholas Mee’s working life has been dedicated to the Aston Martin marque. He joined the company in 1976 and rose to become head of its key London sales operation before leaving in 1991, shortly after which he founded his eponymous company in Queen’s Gate Place Mews, South Kensington. Rapid expansion of the business prompted a...

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin's new DBS Superleggera appears a brave move but, on closer inspection, it has a market all to itself It is said that fortune favours the brave and, judging by the spectacular recovery of Aston Martin in the last few years, there would seem to be something in it. As anyone who follows the industry, even at finger-tip distance will know, the Aston Martin today is unrecognisable...

Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...
