Aston Martin centenary celebrations continued in Germany last weekend when it
used the occasion of the 41st ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hour to parade more
than 100 cars at the Nordschleife.
The convoy was led by Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez, who drove the new
CC100 Speedster Concept, which made its global debut at the Nürburgring.
Among the models making the 14-mile lap were the DB5 from the recent James
Bond film Skyfall movie, a One-77 hypercar, the 1959 Nürburgring 1000km-
winning DBR1 driven by Sir Stirling Moss who won the race, and a modern
Centenary Edition Vanquish.
They were followed by Aston Martin owners who had travelled from across
Europe to take part in the gathering. They brought examples of DBS, DB9,
Vantage, Rapide, DB3, DB2/4 Drophead, DB7 Zagato and a V12 Vanquish S.
Aston Martin had a strong entry at this year's ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hours
with a front-running V12 Vantage GT3, a record-breaking Hybrid Hydrogen
Rapide S and a close-to-production specification V12 Vantage. See separate
