The six Aston Martins comprise Vantage, DB11 Volante, DBS Superleggera and three DBS Superleggera Volantes, and account for 25 per cent of Auto Vivendi’s collection of cars amassed by its Welsh directors Richard Thomas of Maesteg and Craig Williams, from Usk.

Offering a breadth of characterful supercars to cater for every occasion, this latest acquisition spans each model currently offered by Aston Martin, this is the first time in the company’s history that such a large-scale handover has occurred from its global headquarters, Gaydon. 

Joining Auto Vivendi Directors Richard Thomas and Craig Williams were Aston Martin’s Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Peter Freedman and UK & SA Regional President, Philip Eaglesfield.  

Speaking about the partnership between Aston Martin and Auto Vivendi that has existed since 2017, Philip Eaglesfield, said, “As a company, Aston Martin is known for crafting the most beautiful sports cars. It is great to see that our models are a hit with the discerning members of Auto Vivendi. 

“Auto Vivendi members have a choice of cars from every luxury automotive brand and so it is great to see that Aston Martin is proving so popular. Our core model range is of course beautiful to drive but it is also exhilerating, comfortable and a visceral experience. Something that is clearly appreciated by the members of Auto Vivendi.”

Following the handover, the directors of Auto Vivendi and six of their club members departed Gaydon in convoy for a scenic drive back to the Auto Vivendi Clubhouse in London. Aston Martin has planned a series of events with Auto Vivendi across the 2020 calendar year including AVmax200 days and track day events at Ascari in Spain.
