Iconic Astons star at opening of Newport Pagnell Heritage Showroom


Almost 300 guests made their way to  Newport Pagnell for a pre-Christmas party at Aston Martin Works on 6 December, but the stars were still the cars.

They included the DB5 used in the filming of the most recent James Bond movie, Skyfall, alongside an FLM Panelcraft DB6 Shooting Brake once owned by Innes Ireland.

The classics were displayed in the newly opened Heritage Showroom, converted from the former panel shop at Aston Martin Works and an aircraft hangar.

Aston Martin Works Managing Director, Kingsley Riding-Felce, said: “The building we stand in this evening – Olympia – is our newly-opened heritage showroom and its renovation completes the two-year, multi-million pound redevelopment of Aston Martin Works and cements our position as the home of Aston Martin heritage, restoration, service and repair.”
