If there’s one thing that unites us all, it’s that the lack of Aston Martin dealerships nationally is a constant worry. MotorMartin is often found worrying about where, once that elusive lottery win is sorted, he’ll be able to buy his Aston as their dealerships aren’t in every town or City. To solve this problem for those lucky few in the North East, Aston Martin has opened its latest new dealership in the UK in Newcastle, with the first Aston Martin dealership for partner Stoneacre.
The purpose-built state-of-the-art facility, MotorMartin has been told, features a 14-car luxurious showroom for new and pre-owned Aston Martin sports cars, a separate “Q by Aston Martin” lounge where customers can tailor their new car to the exact specification of their choosing, a dedicated aftersales team and a workshop staffed by world-class Gaydon-trained technicians. A well thought out set up.
Speaking at the VIP customer reception last week, Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer said: “I am delighted to open this outstanding new facility here in Newcastle, which sets the benchmark for all dealership showrooms worldwide. We have found the right partner in Stoneacre who share our passion for Aston Martin.
“We are confident the passionate and dedicated Aston Martin Newcastle team will draw upon their extensive experience and knowledge of the Aston Martin brand to provide our valued customers in Newcastle an exceptional service.” and I’ve no doubt that they will do.
Shaun Foweather, Managing Director of Stoneacre commented to MotorMartin that: “It was great to see over 200 Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts this evening, which shows the extensive level of interest in this fantastic iconic 103 year old marque. It was an honor to also be able to unveil the new DB11 for the first time in the UK on such a special night.”
Time has been taken in choosing the ideal position for the new venture as it is located in a prime position at Silverlink, which is easily accessible from the A19 and A1, the showroom opening was attended by invited guests and key members of the Aston Martin senior executive team.
Attendees were treated to the first public unveiling in the UK of the new DB11. The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition.
Also included in the display was Aston Martin Racing endurance veteran, the #99 V8 Vantage GTE, an Aston Martin Vulcan, a Lagonda Taraf alongside examples from the company’s current line-up, and a selection of heritage models.
