Aston Martin Lagonda have announced two important new additions to its UK site operations. The Aston Martin Test and Development Centre at Silverstone and the creation of a central London office. It means that Silverstone will become a new hub for prototype vehicle testing, focused on chassis dynamics and high-speed handling. "The company is now investing for growth across the Aston Martin and Lagonda brands," said Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and CEO. "I am particularly pleased that we can now call Silverstone home for dynamic testing and development." Since the announcement of the company's seven-year Second Century Business Plan in early 2015, there has been a progressive retooling of every area of the business. With the addition of Silverstone and London, Aston Martin Lagonda will operate out of 10 locations across the UK and by the end of 2022 is set to employ 5,000 people. "Aston Martin will soon become one of the leading automotive employers in the UK", said Dr Palmer.
Popular UK rental company Supercar Hire has recently added a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder to its car selection. It will be joining an already impressive fleet featuring esteemed brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar and Porsche. 'Since the start of our journey, the Supercar Hire mission was to make the absolute best supercars in the market easily accessible to a greater number of people," said company spokesperson Aaron Girling. "The Huracan Spyder is the epitome of thrilling, cutting-edge supercar design, a modern motoring masterpiece." While this recent acquisition marks yet another milestone for the East Midlands based company, Girling also hinted that clients can look forward to more exciting additions in the coming months.
The revolutionary all-electric Jaguar I-PACE will be making one of its first UK public appearances at the Fully Charged Live event, taking place at Silverstone from 9th-10th June. The C-X75 supercar inspired performance SUV has already received critical acclaim, being named a 'Game Changer' at the 2018 Autocar Awards and collecting the What Car? 2018 Reader Award, securing it the title of the most anticipated new car of 2018. Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: "The reaction to the Jaguar I-PACE has been absolutely staggering, from both the public and media. Everyone at Jaguar Land Rover UK is extremely proud of what we've achieved with the I-PACE, so we're delighted to be able to show it off at Silverstone for the inaugural Fully Charged Live show this weekend."

This weekend's 2018 Rolex Australian Grand Prix marks the beginning of Aston Martin's most ambitious global motorsport programme in more than half a century. For the first time since 1959, the Aston Martin name will appear in both the Formula 1 and Le Mans 24 Hours entry lists. "Racing forms part of the original DNA of the company and this reinforces the message," said Aston Martin's President and Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer. "It's in the name, Lionel Martin built and raced his car up Aston Hill, so it's always been part of what we are." Aston Martin Racing will be entering an exciting new challenger - the Vantage GTE - in the GTE Pro category of the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season. In total, the world-famous racing marque will be significantly invested in 44 races around the world in 2018.
Luxury British brand Aston Martin have announced that the Swiss luxury watch company TAG Heuer will become its official watch partner.

Both brands have teams of brilliant designers and when two talented teams of designers collaborate like this, incredible things are created." Jean-Claude Biver, Chief Executive Officer of TAG Heuer and President of LVMH Group Watches Division, echoed Palmer's excitement about the new partnership: "Aston Martin has the same genetic make-up as TAG Heuer: luxury, quality, beautiful products, innovation, history, emotion and performance. We are therefore delighted to be able to work with such a prestigious brand that shares our passion for cars."
