Aston Martin at Techno Classica

Like mentioned in my earlier Jaguar article, British cars were not present in large numbers at the 2015 Techno Classica. Which unfortunately also applies to Aston Martin. There was no official Aston Martin booth, but luckily some outstanding examples could be found scattered all around the exhibition. Unfortunately I didn’t found a DB5, but some nice DB6s made my day.
A restored DB3 S racer was attracting a lot of attention. No surprise if you look at the gorgeous 1950s styling in British Racing Green. David Brown’s Speedback GT was also present. I know it’s not an Aston Martin, but the concept of a British coach builder creating a modern interpretation of a DB5 should certainly appeal to fans of British classics. The fact that it is based on a Jaguar XKR also helps.
A DB5 for the weekends and the Speedback GT for the weekdays, sounds like an interesting plan, not?
Let’s move on to the pictures!

Not an Aston Martin as such, but designed by David Brown (namesake of Aston Martin’s founder) and based on a Jaguar XKR, the Speedback GT is the modern interpretation of the 1960s Aston Martin DB5.David Brown Speedback GT
