Aston Martin launches its year of centenary celebrations

Article by Christian A., on January 17, 2013

To celebrate the official anniversary of Aston Martin’s founding exactly 100 years ago on Jan. 15, 1913, it has newly launched one year of Aston centenary celebrations with a return to its London roots. The British sports car maker kicks off the celebrations with a ceremony in Chelsea’s Henniker Mews, the original home of the company that proceeded on to be known as Aston Martin.

It has partnered with the Aston Martin Heritage Trust to present a commemorative plaque at Henniker Mews. It’s also working on a special centenary edition of the Vanquish, the new ultimate GT, together with the A3 (the oldest existing Aston Martin model). Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez, released a statement to express how proud he was of celebrating “100 years of heritage and the best of British craftsmanship.”

He added that Aston Martin is the “coolest luxury car brand on the planet” and that it looks forward to making the most sought-after sports cars in the world. Roger Carey, Chairman of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust, said that it’s “fitting” that Henniker Mews has the newest and oldest Aston Martins in existence since it’s where its history started. It’s the first location of its workshops.

Aston Martin Heritage Trust believed that to commemorate the centenary, there has to be a plaque displayed there. According to Aston Martin Chairman, David Richards, this is the place where it all began. He added that Aston Martin has reached a major milestone in 2013 with its distinctive heritage and intensely independent tradition inspiring future chapters. He also said that the company seeks to share this milestone with fans, its partners, as well as its customers around the world.
