Staff at Aston Martin Cheltenham and Aston Martin Reading were delighted to welcome customers to their showrooms on Saturday for their annual service clinic coffee meets. These relaxed, informal events give customers the opportunity to enjoy some freshly-brewed coffee, delicious crepes or breakfast rolls and peruse our exclusive range of luxury sports cars and SUVs.
And, with the prospect of warmer spring weather just around the corner, many guests took advantage of a complementary vehicle health check, carried out by our expert technicians, to ensure that their Aston Martins are ready for their next grand tour.
There was also the chance to road test the DBX and its even higher-performance stablemate, the DBX707. Aston Martin’s first SUV, the DBX holds steadfast to the principles of beauty, luxury, and pure driving dynamics, together with a luxurious, spacious interior for five occupants, and the added benefit of active all-wheel-drive and height-adjustable air suspension. With the renowned 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 generating 550hp and 700Nm, the DBX can launch from rest to 62mph in a mere 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 181mph.
Even more driver-focused in nature, the extraordinary DBX707 receives extensive enhancements to engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, electronic chassis systems, and aerodynamics, delivering the optimal balance of agility, traction, and control. With the uprated V8 developing 707PS and 900Nm, DBX707 can accelerate from 0-62mph in an astonishing 3.1 seconds. Maximum speed? A truly epic 193mph.
There were also opportunities to inspect some ultra-rare used models too: in Cheltenham, the world’s only road-legal version of the track-focused Aston Martin V8 Vantage AMR Pro, of which only seven were made in total. In the Reading showroom, guests could marvel at a 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake – one of only 99 ever made, beautifully presented in Lava Red, and powered by the magnificent naturally-aspirated V12. Plus, courtesy of The Little Car Company, DB5 Junior was on display in Pangbourne.
