In this our fourth episode, Garry Taylor speaks to Guy Jenner, the Chief Executive Officer at HWM Aston Martin about the end of the Aston Martin manual gearbox. The stick shift and third pedal much loved by enthusiasts is coming to the end of an era, so we explore manuals across the VH range and the new era cars, including Vanquish, DB9 & DBS manuals, Project Victor and the Vantage. HWM have a rich history with Aston Martin being the oldest Aston Martin dealer in the world so they can provide a great insight into these wonderful cars.
Also, Wayne and Garry talk about recent happenings at Aston Martin including the launch of the world’s most powerful SUV – the DBX707.
