Aston Martin at Beaulieu

IMG_0140 (1)

Today was the ‘Simply Aston Martin’ event at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu. Owners of cars that wore the iconic badge, were able to display their vehicles for everyone to see. I was fortunate enough to attend and marvel over some of the most desirable cars ever made.

Founded in 1913, Aston Martin have been making the worlds most beautiful works of art on four wheels for over 100 years. With help from Bond and more recently Mercedes-AMG, the brand has stayed strong throughout its lifetime. ‘Simply Aston Martin’ allowed owners and the public to celebrate Aston Martin and the magnificent machines they’ve produced.

As usual in Britain, the weather wasn’t great. Grey skies constantly rained throughout the day, however, luckily only lightly. After arriving at the Motor Museum, I immediately headed toward the big Aston Martin sign.

As you can see, the event was pretty huge. The area of Aston Martins stretched as long as the eye could see. 100 years worth of cars lined up in all their glory.

Here are some of my favourites-

At the end of my look around the Astons, I decided to have a wander around the rest of the museum. I have been many times in the past, though there was something new that I was eager to see.

Yes, the Track-tor from Top Gear. One of the best parts of the Beaulieu Motor Museum is the World of Top Gear. As a big fan of the show, it was cool to see something from the newest series.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Simply Aston Martin.’ I’ve never quite seen a gathering of cars that were so beautiful. Not to mention the symphony of V8 and V12 greatness which went with them. I want to thank the Beaulieu National Motor Museum for hosting the amazing event.
