The luxury British brand succeeds at the MotorKlassik Awards 2017. A trio of the brand’s iconic models – namely the Aston Martin DB5, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato, and the Aston Martin DB11 – has been awarded by over 22,000 readers of the prestigious German automotive magazine MotorKlassik.
The DB5 has been awarded the ‘Classic car of the 1960s’. The Vanquish Zagato convinced the MotorKlassik readers in the category ‘Classic car of tomorrow – luxury class’. The Aston Martin DB11 continues its series of international awards winning the category ‘Classic car of tomorrow – coupes’.
The magazine’s award ceremony took place at Schloss Dyck in Jüchen. Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, said: “It is something very special to see that one of the world’s most respected luxury car brands has captivated and held its growing audience year after year. These MotorKlassik Awards underline Aston Martin’s unique and timeless design language. We thank the readers of MotorKlassik for their votes.”
Aston Martin is an independent British luxury sports car company. Famous for the creation of beautiful hand-crafted sports cars, the Aston Martin range today comprises the Vantage, Rapide S, Vanquish, DB11 and special-series cars such as the Vanquish Zagato and Aston Martin Vulcan. Based in Gaydon, England, Aston Martin designs and creates sports cars which are sold in more than 50 countries around the world.
Founded in 1913, the company recently launched its six-year Second Century plan for sustainable long-term growth.
