Stellar turnout for the Aston Martin Heritage Festival 2023

Aston Martin Heritage Festival

Nearly 600 examples of the Aston Martin Lagonda cars, including hugely rare and genuine one-off creations, made their way to the British Motor Museum, Warwickshire, to honour 25 years of the AMHT and 110 years of the great British car maker.

The AMHT’s celebration took place on Saturday, 12th August 2023, and showcased highly prized Aston Martin models by era, leading the 2,000 visitors on a tour through fascinating themed sections of the car park.

Visitors were able to get up close to some exceptional highlights including Bulldog, the record-breaking 200mph Aston Martin, and the all-new DB12, the latest addition to the DB bloodline, DB1, One-77 and many more.

Commenting on the success of the event, AMHT Chairman John Warden said:

“The festival this year was always about marking two milestones; 110 years of AML and 25 years of AMHT. We had high hopes for a big birthday party, all of which were exceeded. I was particularly buoyed by the atmosphere.

“The AMHT team is delighted that so many owners came to the festival. What an absolutely fantastic day!”

Continuing the theme of 25 years of the AMHT, a new exhibition is now on show at its regular home, the Aston Martin Museum at Drayton St Leonard, near Wallingford in Oxfordshire. Visitors are treated to 25 objects for 25 years, from A3 (the oldest surviving Aston Martin) to Max Verstappen’s 2021 overalls. The museum is open for timed, pre-booked visits and tickets are available below.
