Three generations of Aston Martin

by Sara Norris

Three generations of Aston Martin on one tour – this is all the eyecandy you could ask for. In early September on the way down to Tuscany for a group driving tour our team stopped for lunch in France close to Geneva, where we sent out a group of classic car drivers on a custom designed driving tour south to the French Riviera. It was just a quick stop for a few hours with no intentions to take any photos, but when I saw the cars they brought there… I could not resist, of course. It was a real pleasure to see the convoy behind us when we drove with them for the first half an hour of the tour. It was a group of cars that I will probably never see together again on the road.

Aston Martin MKII 1935

Astonishing is the right word to describe these cars. Aston Martin MKII from 1935. The most stylish car and driver combo I have ever seen on the road. Aston Martin DB5. A beautiful car. An Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, which was not a classic of course, but with it included they were rolling with three generations of Aston Martin on road. Ferrari 330 2+2 from 1966. Two Jaguar E-Types (love the red, this is definitely a car I one day just have to own!). Rolls-Royce Corniche – with a beautiful woman behind the steering wheel.

Blessed is the right word to describe that I actually got the chance to see this group together. Especially the MKII Aston… Left me a little speechless, the car is 79 years old and it was there, on the road, rolling happily (and loudly!) from one place to another. I have no idea what it feels like to drive a car that old, but one day I need to find out!
