Today we were lucky enough to have a private reveal party for the all new Aston Martin DBX, thanks to our friends at Aston Martin Chichester. An SUV designed with the supercar driver in mind. A roaring 4.0 V8 Twin Turbo savage beast!
Upon arrival, club cars were assembled in the fabulous driveway of club member Phil S, our wonderful host on this beautiful summer’s evening.
After parking up and greeting fellow guests, people moved to the rear garden along a flag lined runway to where the carefully covered Aston Martin was ready to be revealed.
Chilled bubbly was served from a beautiful 1964 Volkswagen ‘Split Screen’ Camper. Canapes and other snacks kept the guests refreshed whilst the anticipation built for the big reveal. Many were speculating as to the colour of our Aston Martin.
In true James Bond style, the event itself was marked TOP SECRET as there was a press embargo in place by Aston Martin Lagonda. All attendees had to sign NDAs with AML to ensure no leaks of photos or video were posted on social media.
It was time to uncover our DBX to the guests: queue the James Bond theme tune! Greg egged the members on to try and guess the colour one last time but no one was to guess correctly.
Our Aston Martin was in ‘Morning Frost’, a pearlescent white that looked stunning with red brake calipers, diamond turned allow wheels which were offset with a black painted finish. Just stunning…
Lots of wows from all the members as the car slid into view. A beautiful stylistic body shape with the unmistakable Aston Martin grille. A spacious full four seats and room for a boot load of gear.
With thanks to….
