2014 saw Aston Martin unveil a range of exciting and dynamic additions to our iconic model range - to celebrate, we went on tour with an exclusive schedule of events across our UK dealer network.

The Ultimate Evolution Tour showcased the latest Aston Martin design and technical developments and offered our guests an exclusive insight into just some of the innovations released by Aston Martin in 2014.

Bringing together the world's only full-size model of DP-100 - the futuristic concept created for video game Gran Turismo, Vantage N430 road and race cars - the most dramatic expression of V8 Vantage ever created and the unique 'rolling chassis' for 2015 Vanquish and Rapide S.

The events were fully booked but fans were still able to get involved by tweeting or posting on Instagram a picture of our 'Ultimate Evolution Tour' truck using #UltimateEvo.
