Vulcan amongst other rare and stunning models in unique world-class Aston Martin Owners Club display (E50/D50)
The Aston Martin Owners Club has one of the best Aston Martin displays at this year’s London Classic Car Show, including a stunning Vulcan in Divine Red, located E50/D50.
Thanks to its membership, the Club has been able to bring together a unique display of rare, highly sought-after and stunning cars including one of only 24 Vulcan cars ever produced, a fascinating ‘barn find’ in need of restoration and a beautiful piece of motoring history in the pre-war racer, Red Dragon.
Other cars in the display include ‘Tweety Pie’, a very rare Sunburst Yellow 3-part pearlescent paintwork V8 Vantage Roadster and a rare Madagascar Orange V8 Vantage S Roadster. A fully restored DBS 6 Vantage makes for a fascinating juxtaposition next to a ‘barn find’ of the same model in need of full restoration.
The Aston Martin Owners Club is the only official worldwide club for Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts, and it is the only one recognised by Aston Martin Lagonda. It is also the largest onemarque car club in the world with around 6,000 members around the globe.
