The first of our esteemed guests will be Aston Martin design director Miles Nurnberger, one of the men in charge of forming Aston Martin’s future aesthetic coming into the marque’s second century. His latest work is the DBS Superleggera, a model that will be exclusively on display at our evening. Responsible for some of the most beautiful cars from the past and present, Nurnberger has the formidable task of holding on to over 100 years of design heritage, while still pushing the boundaries in performance car design.
But a grand design is nothing without a sparkling chassis underneath, which is where one of the industry’s leading chassis engineers, Matt Becker, comes into focus. Responsible for some of the 20th century’s most celebrated sports cars, such as the Lotus Elise, Becker joined Aston Martin with a wealth of experience to apply to the firm’s 21st century line-up.
Helping define Aston Martin’s performance on the racetrack, three-time Le Mans 24 Hours-winning racing driver Darren Turner has been instrumental in Aston Martin’s advance in contemporary motorsport. After having competed in the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours, Turner will also be joining us to discuss the challenges and opportunities he is expecting to face as the all-new Vantage GTE Pro racing car enters full competition in the World Endurance Car super season.
Also there on the night will be Robert Smith, chairman of Aston Martin’s Heritage Trust, and Robert Blakemore, managing director of Ecurie Bertelli, the foremost specialist in pre-war Aston Martins.
The evening will be hosted by Steve Rider, while F1 commentator and motorsport legend Martin Brundle will also make a special appearance.
You’ll also get an exclusive look at Aston’s newest model, the DBS Superleggera. Click on the link below to book your tickets to this exclusive event.
