Over 100 Aston Martins joined centenary parade at Nordschleife

Article by Anita Panait, on May 21, 2013

More than 100 Aston Martin sports cars took part on a parade on May 19, 2013 at the infamous Nordschleife road circuit in Germany as part of Aston Martin’s celebration of a century of automotive existence. The 100-plus car parade, which occurred just before the 41st ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hours at the road circuit, was led by Aston Martin chief executive Dr. Ulrich Bez in an all-new CC100 Speedster Concept that was recently unveiled at the Nürburgring this weekend.

The parade also featured vehicles from Aston Martin’s century-rich lineup. Taking part in this 22-km parade were: the DB5 featured in the recent James Bond movie “Skyfall”; a One-77 hypercar; the 1959 Nürburgring 1000 km victor DBR1, driven by original driver Sir Stirling Moss; and a modern Centenary Edition Vanquish carrying a number plate ‘100YRS’.

Also taking a good part in the centenary celebration parade is a good number of Aston Martin enthusiast owners coming from all over Europe. They brought along them their own Aston Martin vehicles like the DBS, the DB9, the Vantage and the Rapide.

A good bunch of partakers in the Nordschleife parade are a DB3, DB2/4 Drophead, DB7 Zagato and a V12 Vanquish S. Dr. Bez described the event as “a fabulous occasion.” He remarked that seeing many of Aston Martin’s “great cars” together on the Nordschleife was “truly memorable” for the spectators and drivers. He was also very pleased in seeing Sir Stirling Moss back at the infamous circuit piloting the DBR1.
