Aston Martin has been shaped by its long and distinguished heritage.
The values that its famous wing has always stood for - flair, individuality, craftsmanship, performance, timeless engineering...
Following this week's record breaking auction where an Aston Martin DB2 sold for £550,000 ($880,000), we thought it would be worth showing you this video.
You'll see the makings of a classic car of the future.
It shows the design process behind the V8 Vantage, including durability tests, hot environment tests and high speed hill climbs.
The video culminates with Ulrich Bez, The Aston Martin Chairman, commenting:
"This is the most important car in our history."
