Aston Martin Celebrates Heritage at Goodwood Revival

Aston Martin DB4 GT

Aston Martin returns to the historic Goodwood Revival this weekend, with a selection of classic cars that celebrate the 102-year-old brand’s rich heritage.

The famous British sports car maker is once again an automotive partner of this year’s meeting where examples of some of Aston Martin’s most exclusive and highly-prized sports cars of the revival period – 1948-1966 – will be on show, and in action.

Aside from the numerous iconic Aston Martin racing cars in action on the Goodwood track, the 1950s-inspired Earls Court motorshow (above) will play host to a broad selection of Aston Martin models from across the years. Seminal examples on display will include the iconic DB5 Coupe (below), the latest DBS and the first public showing of the recently announced DB9 GT Bond Edition.

Limited to just 150 examples worldwide, the new Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition adds even greater levels of exclusivity to that of the standard DB9 GT by virtue of a host of carefully considered trim, equipment and accessory additions.

Speaking about Aston Martin’s presence at this year’s Revival, CEO Dr Palmer said: “The Goodwood Revival is always a great occasion and, like the Festival of Speed at the same venue, it has become a genuine highlight of the UK motoring calendar.

“It seems entirely fitting, therefore, that Aston Martin plays its part once again this year and gives the visiting crowds something truly memorable to admire and experience.”

The Goodwood Revival meeting takes place Friday 11 September to Sunday 13 September at the Goodwood Circuit near Chichester, West Sussex.
