Auto retailer Aston Martin Newcastle has officially opened, with the business marking the first tie-up between the premium car maker and auto retailer Stoneacre. The site at Cobalt Park Way, Silverlink includes a 14-car showroom and a separate James Bond-themed “Q by Aston Martin” lounge where customers can tailor a car to their own specification.

A recent VIP launch event included the first public unveiling of the brand’s new DB11. Also included in the display was a collection of motorsport and heritage models plus the company’s current road car line-up.

Commenting on the business venture, Shaun Foweather, Managing Director of Stoneacre said: “It was great to see over 200 Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts this evening, which shows the extensive level of interest in this fantastic iconic 103 year old marque. It was an honour to also be able to unveil the new DB11 for the first time in the UK on such a special night.”
