A stunning DB7 25th-anniversary timeline was the star of the Simply Aston show at Beaulieu at the weekend with a total of 410 Aston Martins being showcased in the sunshine.
Decent weather made for a stylish seasonal kick-start as owners of the iconic British marque arrived in large numbers to exhibit their pride and joy.
With a 32% increase over 2018’s turnout of 311 cars, yesterday’s rally (April 7th) showcased some of the most glamorous cars on the road – as Aston Martins of every age drove into the grounds of the National Motor Museum for 2019’s first Simply event.
Beaulieu Events Arena
Celebrating one of the most successful Aston models, 23 examples of the much-loved DB7 made a real-life timeline on Beaulieu’s Events Arena, spanning a long production life from 1994 – 2004. Hoods were lowered on DB7 Volante convertibles as they went on show in the spring sunshine alongside sleek DB7 coupes.
Aston fans were spoiled for choice by the variety of supercars on show, ranging from the glamorous 1955 DB2/4 DHC, 1959 DB MkIII FHC and 1962 DB4 Vantage, through examples of the classic DB5, DB6 and V8, to the V8 Coupes of the 1990s. Well represented was the modern-day DB9, while special edition Vantage GT8 and Vantage N430 were joined by two of the very latest Aston Martin Vantages.
