Aston Martin Celebrates Redevelopment Of New Plant By Skidding £65m Of Cars Through It

We’re big fans of Aston Martin here at SU Towers.

It’s a pillar of the UK automotive scene, and one that has created some of the most beautiful and sought-after vehicles throughout car history.

In case you haven’t heard though, it’s expanding. Aston recently announced that it would be redeveloping a former MoD site in St Athan, south Wales, into an all-new facility where it will create the DBX – a luxury crossover GT.

It’s a big step for the manufacturer, and one that deserves celebrating. So, how has it done this, do you think? A big cake perhaps? Maybe a few party poppers?

Nope – something a little more high-octane than that. Two of the firm’s racing drivers, as well as its chief engineer, took to the wheels of £65m-worth of cars and went drifting through the new plant.

It’s a great showcase of Aston’s 104-year history, going sideways.

You may also recognise the ‘security guards’. They’re professional Welsh rugby players Ken Owens, Scott Williams and Scott Quinnell. A secret spot for you rugby fans out there.

It’s a great video, and one best enjoyed in full. See it in all its glory below.

Pssst!
