With 100 years of heritage, Aston Martin is a global icon in the production of luxury automobiles.
Filmatography recently captured the unveiling of a masterpiece - Aston Martin's latest supercar, the AM210 Vanquish. The exhilarating machine-on-wheels first saw light within the walls of the suitably star-studded London Film Museum, set deep in the heart of the Capital's theatre land. An exclusive invited audience of more than 500 Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts mingled with screen and TV stars and society guests as Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez formally revealed the new super grand tourer. With champagne flowing amongst a sea of famous faces, the event oozed sophistication and glamour.
Aston Martin's CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez was supported by an atmospheric array of dancing spotlights and a bass enthralled electronic beat when he fired up a revolutionary chapter in the famous company’s history, introducing the first radically modified car to be made at HQ since the launch of the DB9.
Compared to the outgoing DBS used in the 007 franchise, the AM310 Vanquish has all-carbon fibre bodywork, better interior packaging, a more powerful (now 565bhp) engine and a brand-new, One-77-derived interior. Three cars were on display in London: one pearlescent white with red leather, one grey with tan, and a cutaway chassis and body allowing the wonderful weave of unpainted carbon fibre to be seen by all. This latter one also had a partly sectioned engine that demonstrated exactly how the big V12’s cylinder heads have been modified to give the extra power.
Filmatography were honoured to have encapsulated the air of luxury surrounding the Aston Martin Vanquish debut.
