Aston Martin in Wilmslow held a showcase this week for the unveiling of the new DB11 V8 Volante.


Upon arrival guests walked the red carpet up to the front door where we were greeted by a lovely staff member and handed a glass of champagne or mulled wine to get into the Christmas spirit.


Aston Martin invited businesses to showcase its products at the travel, leisure and motoring event.


With the likes of Rolex and Patek Philippe, as well as the fine jewellery they had an artist there Jim from Dollarsandart.


Jim had his prints and pictures presented on easels. He had a bit of everything from Marilyn Monroe to Donald Trump.


Jim wasn’t just showing off his collection he was also painting whilst he was there too.


He was asking guests opinions on what they thought should be added and whatever they said went.


He even ended up sticking Lego bricks onto one of them.



Whilst looking around the showroom there was another DB11 V9 Coupe there.


It was Cinnabar Orange in colour and looked absolutely stunning.


Just behind it there was a wall with all the modifications you could have on an Aston Martin if you were to buy one.



Whilst you waiting for the new DB11 V8 Volante to be unveiled everyone was glued to the other DB11 Coupe in the showroom.


With the gull-wing doors and the carbon fibre in the headlights this car was at a high standard.


At 8pm it was unveiling time, everyone gathered round to be the first to see the brand new DB 11 V8 Volante.


The car was unveiled to be a black, cabriolet with a navy blue leather interior which looked very sophisticated.
