Aston Martin continues to celebrate its centenary, gathering 50,000 visitors to Kensington Gardens in London for the largest meeting of iconic British sports cars in history.

Highlights from the event include a timeline of highly significant Aston Martin models, a display dedicated to the brand’s 50-year involvement with the James Bond franchise, and vehicles from Aston Martin’s motorsport program. The event was staged by the Aston Martin Owners Club, Aston Martin Heritage Trust, and Aston Martin, and was held with the permission of The Royal Parks and The Royal Household.

As many as 550 Aston Martin vehicles were on hand at the event, making it the largest single gathering of Aston Martins in history.

“Heritage is a vital part of the Aston Martin story and it is only right that we celebrate this in spectacular style here in the brand’s UK home,” said CEO Ulrich Bez. “Now we can look to further global activities starting with our participation at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in just a few weeks’ time.”
