Aston Martin has dedicated a full calendar year to celebrating its 100th birthday. The festivities began last July and will culminate in summer 2013. Among the notable celebratory events on the lengthy agenda will be the 2013 Silverstone Classics, where 100 Aston Martin cars shall reign supreme!
The company is commemorating the past and looking ahead to the future.
The brand recently soared to new heights when it hoisted a shiny Aston Martin Vanquish to the top of the tallest hotel in Dubai, creating a sensational production. That awesome event was also a part of the centenarian celebrations.
Also on the agenda of events for Aston’s 100th birthday:
- A James Bond inspired roadtrip around England and Wales
- A rally including 6 European countries
- A drive through the Highlands and Islands of Scotland
- Nurburgring 24 Hours Race (May 17th-20th)
- Bonhams Auction (May 18th)
- Le Mans Centenary Parade (June 21st-23rd)
- AMOC Centenary Race (July 6th and 7th)
- Centenary Drives (July and August)
- Centenary Week (July 15th-21st)
- Aston Martin birthday party (July 20th)
- Centenary Celebration (July 21st)
- Silverstone Classic (July 27th and 28th)
The celebration at Silverstone Classic will take place around lunchtime on that Saturday, when 100 Aston Martins will parade about to mark the “Featured Celebration Marque for 2013”. If this sounds exciting, rumor has it that over 1,000 Aston Martin cars may attend the Centenary Week celebrations at the Gaydon headquarters during the week of July 15th, 2013!
Event Director Nick Wigley stated:
“We are thrilled to be celebrating such a momentous milestone in Aston Martin’s illustrious history at next summer’s Silverstone Classic. Silverstone is the perfect setting for such a special occasion and we are working closely with Aston Martin, the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and the Aston Martin Owners’ Club to ensure this magnificent centenary is marked in fine style.”
The actual birthday for the brand fell on January 13th, 2013. See the promotional video above for more information.
