I was very lucky to be amongst a select few winners of a competition at work, where the prize was a VIP tour of the Aston Martin factory in Gaydon. I could hardly believe it when I found out as…
A) I never win anything
B) Of the people I work with I’m the biggest petrol head 🙂
I spent a very enjoyable two and a half hours being guided round by our incredibly knowledgeable hosts Nick and Miriam. My other colleagues seemed to be having a great time too.
Thanks Nick and Miriam!
Of particular interest to me was the close inspection of the various engines. I didn’t realise the new V8 is fuelled from the outside in (exhaust between the V). Certainly compact and powerful, I wonder if one would fit in the Scimitar?
Having said that, everything was of interest really! A great day apart from the weather, but even that was quintessentially English!!
