AFTER a two-year redevelopment, the Aston Martin Works Heritage Showroom in Newport Pagnell has opened.

For the first time, heritage cars will be sold directly from its Newport Pagnell base, allowing customers to draw on the vast knowledge of the Works team and its world-renowned restoration division.

Coupled with the modern showroom, which opened just over a year ago, the Heritage Showroom allows customers to view and compare cars from every era of Aston Martin’s 100 years at Aston Martin Works.


Decorated in period style, the Heritage Showroom is housed within the restored Olympia Building, which has been central to the Aston Martin story since its move to Newport Pagnell in 1957.

The Heritage collection includes a display of heritage Aston Martins up to the DB7 and the showroom offers a ‘club-like’ space for launches, special events seminars and conferences.

Managing director at Aston Martin Works, Kingsley Riding-Felce said: ‘The first phase of redevelopment concluded with the opening of our new car showroom and state-of-the-art workshop facilities last spring. The completion of the Olympia Building marks the end of the redevelopment and it provides a beautiful and fitting home for our Heritage sales department.

General manager sales, Paul Spires added: ‘The Heritage Showroom reflects Aston Martin’s 100 years if history. The Olympia building perfectly complements our ultra-modern new car showroom and we hope it will feel like a members’ club for owners and prospective owners of the marque’s heritage cars.

The heritage department will have the ability to manufacture replacement panels for restorations, allowing customers to purchase parts, which are no longer available in the industry.

General manager operations, Graham Darby said: ‘We are able to offer some unique services here at Newport Pagnell. Stand-out examples within the heritage department alone include making replacement panels for restorations on the original factory bucks used when the cars were built here; the ability to manufacture parts which are no longer available for our heritage cars and an enhance engine build shop for six-cylinder and V8 heritage engines.’
