Aston Martin: Made in Britain
Monday 4 October
Lord Leycester Hospital
An extraordinary story of spies, lies and hard-driving genius.
Aston Martin’s story is one of survival, ingenuity and style. Beloved of engineers, speed-freaks and spooks – both real and imagined – the car with the double-o prefix has blazed a trail to become one of the world’s best loved machines.
Join best-selling author, racer and stunt driver, Ben Collins – the man who was The Stig – as he explores this magnificent machine from a unique perspective behind the wheel: carving through country lanes in his father’s V8 Vantage, driving Aston Martins in four James Bond movies and competing against them in the legendary Le Mans 24-hour race.
Aston Martin is the story of a triumph of innovation and design that has burned brightly from the roaring 20s to the 2020s, a driver’s love letter to the cars that never say die.
