Wow – very nice fast cars

On 19 January we visited Aston Martin’s factory at Gaydon for an excellent guided tour. We were shown just how well their cars are still made with personalised loving care, justifying the fantastic price tags which go with them around the world.


Those of us who visited Toyota’s Burnaston plant last Summer compared and contrasted Aston Martin with Toyota’s high volume highly mechanised robotic production. Someone suggested we should raise funds to buy a new DB11 for the club, and hire it out by the day. Our guides offered driver training essential before taking one of their high performance cars out of the showroom!
