The luxury British sports car company will be, once again, commanding attention with a European show debut for the exceptional new V12 Vantage S Roadster alongside the public unveiling of the highly desirable new Vanquish Coupe Carbon Black special edition.

He described joining Aston Martin as a decision of both the head and the heart. He said: “Aston Martin is an iconic brand with tremendous global recognition and potential. The company is at a significant point in its development. Building on our contemporary and relevant product line, we will work hard to extend the company’s global presence while preserving its British heritage and craftsmanship.”

Fresh from the global media launch of the new 15MY Vanquish and Rapide S – which have been roundly praised for their combination of breath-taking performance, head-turning style and effortless luxury – Aston Martin arrives in Paris with a show stand that’s sure to be a favourite among the expected 1.2 million-plus visitors to the event who will make it the world’s largest tier one motor show by attendance.
