Aston Martin’s state-of-the-art headquarters in
Gaydon, Warwickshire is built upon the passion,
skill and creativity of the people who dedicate
their working lives to the most iconic brand in the
world. Every intricate stitch, beautifully expressed
line, and the stirring noise of our engines, is a
manifestation of the desire and collective spirit
to create the most beautiful cars: the soul of
Aston Martin made real.
Gaydon combines cutting-edge technology with hand-craftsmanship and traditional techniques. Comprising of an office block, adjoining production facility and a state-of-the-art design studio, Aston Martin's global headquarters provides an infrastructure ideally suited to innovation, creativity and advanced engineering.
Since opening in 2003 Gaydon has embodied the progress and structural growth made by Aston Martin over the past decade. With a diverse model range, designed, produced and supported within one location, Gaydon has allowed Aston Martin to develop into a globally respected brand.
Gaydon is the birthplace of all contemporary Aston Martins. It is the passion and pride of our workforce, their meticulous execution of every detail that defines an Aston Martin. To convey the effort, skill and determination of our craftsmen and women or their pride when another piece of our unique artwork is ready for its owner is almost impossible. To see the Gaydon production facility in action is to know that every car and our future is in safe hands.
All Aston Martins are initially sculpted by
hand, shaping each line, measuring each
dimension precisely and working to create
perfect aesthetics. That human interface
engenders our cars with perfect proportions,
athletic confidence and the finest attention to
detail. Every line must work in harmony, every
surface flows seamlessly into the next.
Opened in 2007, the Gaydon Design studio is the company’s first stand-alone design facility. Providing a tailor-made space for the world-leading Aston Martin design team, the facility has enabled Aston Martin to tightly integrate its renowned design capability with the engineering and production processes already based at Gaydon.
Beneath the skin of every model is the
very foundation of Aston Martin:
a lightweight, highly versatile and immensely
strong aluminium chassis structure that is
bonded with aerospace adhesives. This
cutting-edge structure forms part of the
Vertical-Horizontal or ‘VH’ philosophy.
Unique to Aston Martin, it offers a highly
evolved platform from which to create
perfectly balanced, stable and intuitive cars.
The bespoke Gaydon facility has added increased this production and engineering flexibility, meaning all Aston Martins are now produced on one of three production lines. This strategy not only assures model consistency, but is also considered a key element for future engineering and product development.
Still, Aston Martin remains a long way from being a mass-producer. Each car remains essentially hand built by craftsmen with decades of experience beneath their fingertips.
