The showroom, which will sell classic Aston Martins direct to consumers, has been on the drawing board for at least two years as Aston sought to refurbish the showroom and facilities before opening to the public. According to Aston Martin, the showroom will be housed in the Olympia building at Aston Martin Works.
Decorated in historical memorabilia from Aston Martin’s illustrious history, the showroom will offer customers the option of purchasing carefully restored models up to and including the DB7. In a statement Aston Martin and assured consumers that potential customers will benefit from the “vast knowledge of the Works team and its experience in handling sales, on-going service and of course, its world-renowned restoration division.”
The Olympia building, in which the Heritage Showroom is now housed, was formerly used as a machine shop, trim shop and even the service department for a short period of time. Aston Martin Works managing director Kingsley Riding-Felce went on to say, “The completion of the Olympia Building marks the end of the redevelopment and it provides a beautiful and fitting home for our Heritage sales department.” The Heritage Showroom promises a full suite of services to classic Astom Martin owners, as echoed by Mr. Riding-Felce, “Aston Martin Works can now provide its customers with an exceptional service, spanning the most modern super cars to cherished heritage models; from sales, to ongoing service, maintenance and repairs, to full restoration.”
