This weekend I visited the 2014 edition of the yearly Interclassics & Topmobiel fair in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Last year’s edition was the best year for Aston Martin fans, because it celebrated AM’s 100 year anniversary. But still, lots of Aston Martin’s to find this year. Here’s some photos I took during the event. A couple of Lagonda’s from the pre-Aston Martin days, several beautiful classic Aston and two modern ones.
Last weekend, as part of a 6 day road trip, I was in Monaco and had the chance to do a quick visit at the Top Marques show. I wasn’t too impressed with the show. It’s quite small and sadly the emphasis seemed to be on tuning (I can’t believe how many full-carbon-body cars I saw there…). Anyway, the local Aston Martin dealer, British Motors, had a stand at the show too, displaying 4 Aston Martins, a Vanquish, a V12 Vantage Roadster, a new DB9 and a Cygnet. (I don’t have any pics of the Cygnet, sorry!).
Last Friday and Saturday, four classic Aston Martins were auctioned and sold at the Monterey Auction in California, for a total of nearly 6.600,000 dollars! (half of which was spent on the above DB3S Racing Car)
