AN ASTON MARTIN WORKS RESTORATION IS GUIDED BY ONE PHILOSOPHY; THAT THE RESTORED MOTORING ICON WILL BE FINISHED TO A BETTER-THAN-NEW STANDARD.
When a Heritage Aston Martin comes to Aston Martin Works, we think of it as coming home. 4,500 man hours ensures that the car is prepared for the next chapter of its life and for the requirements of modern driving, whilst above all else retaining the very essence of the car – its originality.
To preserve as much of the original car as possible each component part is disassembled and stripped of paint and any corrosion. In their barest form the components are graded into that which can be retained, refurbished, or requires replacing.
Testament to the seamless blend of old and new technologies and methods employed, a restored chassis will be sand blasted and powder coated providing additional corrosion protection, whilst aluminium body panels will be hand formed or repaired, utilising the same skills as when the cars were first crafted.
The latest paint technology will be applied for an improved finish with increased durability and the interior trim is hand- crafted using the finest authentic materials.
Whether restored to pure original specification or tailored to individual taste, Aston Martin Works ensures provenance from the traditional skills passed down from generations in the same workshops where the cars were originally made.
PURCHASING A HERITAGE ASTON MARTIN FROM THE FACTORY AND HOME OF THE ICONIC DAVID BROWN ERA IS A TRULY SENSATIONAL EXPERIENCE.
Any Heritage Aston Martin that is for sale is a piece of motoring history in its own right. Each with a past and a provenance – its own story. Born out of the factory at Newport Pagnell, the next chapter in their story has brought them home to Aston Martin Works to be showcased in our Olympia showroom, itself steeped in Aston Martin history.
The knowledge and passion that once designed and manufactured the highly exclusive, collectable and iconic motor cars at Aston Martin Works lives on through our dedicated Sales Specialists who will guide you through every stage of the buying process leaving you entirely satisfied in your selection. There is no better place to find the most magnificent examples from Aston Martin’s history that are available to purchase.
Whether purchased as an investment or for driving pleasure, you can be assured that each Heritage
Aston Martin offered for sale is fully prepared by our Heritage Technicians. In addition to a one year Aston Martin Warranty that is supplied with every car as a sign of our client commitment, each car will also offer our Assured Provenance certification to uphold further the authenticity of purchasing from the historic home of Aston Martin.
FOR CLASSIC CAR INVESTORS AND OWNERS ALIKE, OFFICIAL AUTHENTICATION, CONDITION AND SPECIFICATION HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE ESSENTIAL TO THE VALUE OF A HERITAGE ASTON MARTIN.
The blue-riband certification service from Aston Martin Assured Provenance, is designed to assess the originality, condition and historical significance of a Heritage Aston Martin. Consisting of two phases; Inspection and Certification, Assured Provenance secures confidence in the value of your Heritage Aston Martin.
The Inspection phase is a comprehensive assessment of your Aston Martin, beginning with a review of the car’s visual and mechanical condition. As part of the painstaking examination procedure, entries undergo a digital 3D scan which will be verified and held in a secure archive. Originality is also reviewed at this stage with a comparison between the car’s current form and the original build specification, including Aston Martin modifications.
The next phase is Certification. The Assured Provenance Sanctioning Committee – formed with the unrivalled knowledge of authoritative Aston Martin experts – will determine an appropriate certification for the car, from Platinum to Bronze. Once a certification grade has been granted, you will be presented with a hand-crafted Assured Provenance presentation case containing a richly illustrated record book, a USB containing records of all digital data collected, a pair of dash plaques, a pair of sill plaques and the Assured Provenance certificate.
THE ART OF SHAPING AND MOULDING ALUMINIUM. THE MOST ORIGINAL HERITAGE PANEL PRODUCTION IN THE WORLD.
At Aston Martin Works we have retained the original tooling and artisan skills that have sculpted every Heritage Aston Martin model from the very beginning of the David Brown era onwards. Elegant curves and lines that, when created to millimetre-precise accuracy with the same original craftsmanship create that unmistakable Aston Martin style and sense of quality. The fascinating process of hand-rolling and shaping panels on the English Wheel is awe-inspiring. It is art in its own right that produces the most iconic pieces that we are safeguarding for future generations.
During any work undertaken, be that accident repair, or a restoration, every effort is taken to preserve as much as of the original body and chassis as possible – a key consideration for the provenance of the car – with new aluminium sections seamlessly installed into existing panels. Where an entirely new panel is required, material of identical thickness will be hand-crafted using traditional tools and methods – unchanged for decades – carefully transforming a sheet of alloy aluminium into the instantly recognisable profile of a Heritage Aston Martin.
Prior to fitting panels permanently to the framework, the pre-fit process will ensure that each panel is perfectly aligned, all spacing is correct and consistent and components such as headlights and bumpers fit accurately.
