The needs and wants of Small Volume Manufacturers are often quite different to that of larger manufacturers as such it’s important we have our own voice in Europe. ESCA fills this role and ensures legislators in Europe are aware of our business and the value we bring to the wider European economy.

Dr. Andy Palmer CMG, CEO of Aston Martin

Company Info

The future for Aston Martin is bright under new President and CEO Dr Andy Palmer CMG, who took over the helm of the company in late 2014. Dr Palmer’s first task upon joining Aston Martin was to set about reinventing the company as a sustainable luxury business.

This new luxury business will have a broader portfolio of products offering cutting edge technologies, combined with the very best of design and British craftsmanship, a key aspect synonymous with the Aston Martin brand.

These new products are being developed under the largest investment plan in the company’s history. By the end of this decade, all sports cars in the current range will be replaced, starting with the new DB11, with each of these models having a striking level of design differentiation while remaining unmistakably an Aston Martin. Added to this will be up to three additional model lines taking the company into new market segments.

These additional products will underpin the company’s future growth and sustainability and making it more globally relevant.

Product info


Thanks to its lightweight aluminium construction and the industry-leading Aston Martin powertrain and suspension, DBX drives like no other SUV. It drives like a sports car, with all the raw power you can handle. DBX is an SUV with a V8 engine offering 550PS power output backed by 700Nm of torque, with power delivered over the widest possible range and providing an instant throttle response. It’s the stuff of dreams.


The Vantage heart beats with a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It races from 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds and reaches its pinnacle of 195 mph with ease. Product Development Manager Carlo Della Casa describes the Vantage as ‘A real driver’s car, Vantage delivers speed, agility, and thrill to those lucky enough to sit behind the wheel.’


DB11 brings you pure engineering genius, combined with unexpected practicality. Its V8 and V12 twin-turbo engines effortlessly deliver 503bhp and 630bhp worth of breathtaking performance. Intelligent cylinder bank activation also makes this the cleanest, most fuel-efficient DB ever. Something else to feel good about.


The most ferocious car to don these initials was always destined to perform like no other. Connection coursing through its contours. Snarling with power. Stalking, stalking and stalking until it explodes at speeds north of 200mph. Each detail ferociously obsessed over. For the ultimate grand tourer that creates thunder with every rev of its aggressively perfected engine.


Strictly limited to just 999 examples, Aston Martin are rewriting what best-in class means for driving dynamics and driving pleasure. Incorporating their learnings from Formula 1, Valhalla is at the forefront of the transition from internal combustion to hybrid to full electrification. Confounding expectations, Valhalla is a plugin hybrid that commands over 1,000PS. It is the ultimate balance of elite performance, an evolution of the ground-breaking Aston Martin Valkyrie. Combining a full carbon fibre structure with sophisticated design materials. The result is an immersive new kind of supercar driving experience.


The striking aerodynamic exterior and open underfloor maximise downforce and harness the atmosphere around Valkyrie. All-carbon fibre bodywork carries Aston Martin’s trademark upper grille outline before flowing into a radical body shape that is utterly honed for performance.

+ Heritage

Aston Martin, an iconic British marque of unrivalled heritage has entered its second century. With fresh investment, a new Chief Executive Officer and the strongest model line-up in the company’s history, the company now looks to an exciting future.

Founded in 1913 by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin from a humble workshop on Henniker Mews in London, their vision was to develop cars with impeccable design and supreme performance. These cars captivated the public’s imagination and still command the same emotive fascination over 100 years later.

Today, Aston Martin is the only independent British luxury automotive manufacturer, championing not only breakthroughs in cutting edge design such as the new DB11, but also new technologies through research, development and deployment of lightweight materials and powertrain solutions. The company acts as an essential bridge for the migration of technology from the race track to the road.
