Aston Martin has four exotic vacations planned and you can join in for the ride of your life this summer.
If you want to feel like James Bond by surrounding yourself with Aston Martin sports cars in exotic locations, the British automaker can fulfill your dreams. Aston Martin has announced four different events that you can be a part of from May through September.
Aston Martin & Zagato: Masters of Design
Celebrate the legacy of Aston Martin and Zagato by spending a long weekend in Switzerland from May 20, 2016 to May 22, 2016. You will get an opportunity to meet the masters of design, Marek Reichman and Andrea Zagato, as well as getting an up close and personal look at a concept car that will be on display at Concorso d’Eleganza. Spend the long weekend at the luxurious 19th Century Hotel Splendide Royal that overlooks Lake Lugano in Switzerland.
The trip begins with a champagne and canape reception, followed by a dinner hosted by Reichman and Zagato. Saturday will then take you to Villa d’Este for the full Concorso d’Eleganza experience and after a luxurious cocktail and dinner reception at Villa Visconti, you will get to venture off to an exclusive after party. The weekend ends with a private boat tour of Lake Como on Sunday.
Cost: £4,050 ($5,850) per person based on two people sharing.
Fast Track Adventure: The 24 Hours of Le Mans
If you prefer to live life in the fast lane, then you can take a trip to the 24 Hours of Le Mans from June 17, 2016 to June 20, 2016. On this journey, you will get an opportunity to meet the drivers and watch the race from the most coveted and hard-to-access seats on site. And if you’re wanting to take a break from all the action, since it is a 24-hour race after all, relax in a private chateau and sample the region’s finest wines and gastronomy. You will even travel to Le Mans by Aston Martin’s private helicopters for a true James Bond-like experience.
Highlights during the weekend include an unprecedented insider access to the Garage and Strategy Centre for a personal look of the drivers as they prepare for the race, watching the start of the race in the company of highly skilled experts and making the most of the spectacular views from the Pit Suite.
Cost: £5,875 ($8,500) per person based on two people sharing.
