James Bond’s dream garage uncovered!

Aston Martin St Athan factory

NOT a great deal makes James Bond go weak at the knees.

Maybe only Goldfinger’s laser that got rather close to his meat and two veg.

But this garage would certainly have him getting wobbly.

The sensational Aston Martin Vulcan was the first car to turn a wheel at the site of the British luxury carmaker’s second UK manufacturing plant at St Athan in South Wales recently, signaling the start of the redevelopment of the former MOD site into a state-of-the-art facility.

The appearance of the Aston Martin Vulcan though was just the start of an incredible celebration of Aston Martin’s heritage, which brought together 28 very special Aston Martins with a combined value of £65 million in a film produced to celebrate the transfer of ownership of the three super hangars at St Athan.

In other words, three guys hoon about in some very expensive motors for the sheer hell of it!

The vast, empty hangars offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase Aston’s 104-year history in the only way its drivers knew how.

Aston Martin Racing’s World Endurance Championship (WEC) drivers, Darren Turner and Nicki Thiim, along with Aston Martin Chief Engineer Matt Becker, had plenty of room to manoeuvre a stunning selection of Aston Martins.

That is, until they got caught by the ‘boss’ Aston Martin President and CEO, Andy Palmer.

Enjoy the glorious sights and sounds of Aston Martins from the A3 to the DBR1, the One-77, numerous Vantages, Rapide S and of course the Aston Martin Vulcan, as they spread their wings at St Athan.

Of course you have to end with a Bond pun, it’s Aston Martin after all.

Obviously, this video will leave you…shaken and stirred.
