When we heard about this tribute to Aston Martin at Harrod’s, we had to cover it. Our readers have shown a persistent affection for the brand (this is one of our all-time most-popular stories) and what they love, they get more of. Basically, the AFP is reporting that three Aston Martin cars will take over the Harrods storefront window in London as part of a month-long celebration of the British-made automobile.
Aston Martins have been synonymous with James Bond films for the last 50 years. The DB10 being shown at Harrods was built specifically for the latest Bond film Spectre. Also on display is the new Austin Martin model DB9 GT (below). Arguably the most famous of Aston Martins, the DB5, can be seen at the luxury department store in the Knightsbridge area, as well. This model was released in 1963 and set a standard for Aston Martins to follow with its improvement in performance.
As an aside, we published a photo essay pitting the DB5 against the Vanquish right here. Ok, back to the story on hand.
Aston Martin specialists will be at Harrod’s throughout an accompanying exhibition to provide visitors with insight into the cars and their product range. If we were able to make it to this exhibition, you know how we would be harassing… The window display and the exhibition will run until January 28.
