Aston Martin‘s test centre, located next to the Nürburgring in Germany’s Eifel region, enters cars in the ten-race VLN series on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit each year. Additionally, Aston Martin offers the opportunity to complete a five-step training programme, culminating in qualification to race in the VLN series.
Having been encouraged by Dr Bez to try his hand at motorsport, Pepi Strobl undertook the training programme during the year, passing each level with flying colours, and was delighted to be invited to make his Nürburgring debut sharing a Vantage GT4 with Dr Bez.
Joined in the car by Wolfgang Schuhbauer, Director of the Aston Martin Nürburgring Test Centre, and, after four hours of racing in a field of 180 cars, the trio took third in the highly competitive SP10 class for lightly modified GT4 cars.
The Test Centre also entered a V12 Vantage, driven by Aston Martin’s Chief Engineer Chris Porritt, Australian Rob Thomson and Michael Braun (D), and a second V8 Vantage driven by Joachim Kern (D), Beat Loretz (CH) and Mathais Hüttenrauch (D). Both cars performed flawlessly to come home third and fourth respectively in the SP8 class.
Aston Martin unveiled a stunning new luxury sports car – the Vanquish.
Sitting proudly at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, this breath-taking new super grand tourer represents the zenith of current Aston Martin design and engineering. Vanquish points to an exciting and confident future for the historic brand.
Vanquish is a new Aston Martin featuring the next generation of the renowned VH architecture as well as a significantly upgraded 6.0-litre V12 engine that is considerably more potent than before.
The design represents the latest take on Aston Martin’s iconic visual language. Vanquish unquestionably sees the brand continue its enviable tradition of producing some of the most beautiful sports cars in the world. Styling cues such as the elegant new waist, elongated side strakes and LED rear light blades are derived from the One-77 supercar.
Collection Autosports adds back-up camera integration to the DBS, Rapide, Vantage, and Virage Vehicles as if it were installed from the factory with it.
Their camera integration is a high resolution rear view facing camera, activating when you select reverse and displaying on the factory screen.
They can also offer a forced rear camera solution which allows you to have the camera on even if you are not in reverse.
The camera is one of the highest quality cameras on the market and surpasses any of the factory cameras offered. Its low light sensitivity allows you to back up safely even in the dark.
This camera module can further allow an auxiliary video source to be displayed on the front screen such as forward facing camera, FLIR thermal imaging camera, external DVD, or an AUX video source.

The Aston Martin DBS Ultimate, a vehicle whose arrival we were anticipating. Like the Ultimate edition of the Vanquish that came before it, the DBS Ultimate is a harbinger of the vehicle's departure from the catalog. A new model is expected to arrive in celebration of the company's centenary next year, but before it does, the last few customers will have the privilege of owning one of the few Ultimate editions of the DBS that will ever be produced.
