Aston Martin Singapore celebrates 70 years of its world renowned DB bloodline as the DB family of sports cars – DB7, DB9, DBS, DB11 Volante and V8 & V12 powered DB11 Coupe – will be available for public viewing from 12 – 30 July 2018 in the Aston Martin Singapore Showroom located at 45 Leng Kee Road.
Named after the legendary British industrialist Sir David Brown who bought the company in 1947, Aston Martin’s DB has been driven and adored by thousands of loyal customers worldwide including the world’s greatest secret agent, and has also won some of motorsport’s greatest prizes such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the World Sports Car Championship.
After Sir David Brown sold Aston Martin in 1972, it took 23 years before he granted Aston Martin’s use of his initials once more, affording a new Aston Martin the greatest possible start in life. It was called the DB7.
By the time a completely new Aston Martin was ready in 2003 – the first built at its Gaydon headquarters – the advance in technology, quality and performance was so great, Aston Martin jumped the DB8 number and called the new car DB9. The DB9 begat the second DBS and Bond’s first Gaydon-built company car, while the V8 Vantage-based DB10 earned the honour of becoming 007’s first ever fully bespoke road car.
With the DB11 recently being crowned as Car Of The Year 2017 by Robb Report Singapore and soon to-be-launched DBS Superleggera, the DB brand continues to form the backbone of Aston Martin’s Second Century Plan.
Today, the DB nomenclature is as fundamental a part of Aston Martin as it was 70 years ago. Not just as a core component of the Aston Martin product range, but a key part of its identity too.
In conjunction with the 70th Anniversary, Aston Martin Singapore will also be offering special privileges on the existing range of DB11 during this period. To find out more, please visit the Aston Martin Singapore Showroom or contact the Aston Martin Concierge at email@example.com or 6430 4888.
