RIYADH, KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA
The long awaited ‘double-figure DB’ generation to star at the super-exclusive show with its concept partner, the iconic James Bond “Spectre” DB10.
Aston Martin’s new benchmark DB11 takes centre stage at the Riyadh World Luxury Expo at the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh. The first publicly available in the model in the “double-figure” generation of the famous DB marque, it will feature alongside the only remaining DB10, the car-star of the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’.
“The DB11 is the benchmark model that sets down the design parameters for the next generation of these remarkable cars,” said Sheikh Ali Alireza, CEO of Haji Husein Alireza and Co., sole concessionaires for Aston Martin in Saudi Arabia. The future design themes and product strategy to start the second century of AML as the sports car of choice for the aficionado begin here and now!”
The opening event will be attended by a delegation of senior management from Aston Martin Lagonda, including World Wide Sales Director Mr. Christian Marti, to introduce the car to the discerning buyers in the important Saudi Arabian market.
The Riyadh Amex World Luxury Expo counts amongst the most exclusive exhibitions in the world, with, many VVIPs and even Royalty attending this high profile event. The three-day exhibition will showcase meticulously selected brands and services from an impressive range of luxury categories, appealing to a highly discerning guest list.
Paul Jackson, CEO of World Luxury Group – says “Aston Martin’s important announcement is another impressive addition to the exciting line-up at Amex World Luxury Expo. We are proud to continue a relationship which has seen Aston Martin exhibit with us every year since inception”.
Mark Pocock, National General Manager – says that Aston Martin could not be more at home in the ultra exclusive environment of the Riyadh event. “Aston Martin is probably the widest known luxury sports car brand in the world,” he noted. “Our 100-year racing history and 50 year association with the quintessentially British character of James Bond have introduced the brand to hundreds of millions of aficionados across the world.”
Pocock said that underpinning the longevity of Aston Martin’s enviable reputation was the total commitment of the designers, engineers and craftsmen to keep the customer at the centre of their thinking and to produce the finest possible car.
“I am particularly delighted that Saudi Arabia will be introduced to the next generation so early in its life,” said Pocock. “Our customers here have a deep affection for Aston Martin, and I am sure that the stunningly styled and technologically advanced ‘double-figure DB’ generation will attract its own new generation of enthusiasts. I look forward to meeting customers both existing and new and taking orders during the show.”
Pocock concluded by noting that, “we have a large order bank and waiting list” and said that the importance of the Saudi market was amply demonstrated by the presence of Aston Martin’s senior management at this event!
Augmenting the presence of the two show-stopping DBs, AML is due to launch a limited edition Vanquish Zagato in 2016. This phenomenal very short-run car will surely engage the attention of car collectors. A serious road car of great rarity, the Zagat iterations of Aston Martin have also proved a profitable investment. The order book will fill early and Pocock recommended that potential customers act early to confirm interest.
