Aston Martin DBX Made A Surprise Visit To 10 Downing Street For St David’s Day
To celebrate St David’s Day, patron saint of Wales, the Aston Martin DBX made a surprise visit to 10 Downing Street. The DBX, which is Aston Martin’s first luxury SUV, will be made at a former Ministry of Defence site at St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, which has been transformed into a state-of-the-art car production plant over the last two years. With the DBX parked outside No. 10, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO Dr Andy Palmer attended a reception hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May, and attended by the Secretary of State for Wales, Alan Cairns.
“As we celebrate all that is great about Wales,” said Theresa May, “it’s fantastic to have the first DBX model, that will be built at Aston Martin’s new Welsh base, parked pride of place on Downing Street to mark St David’s Day.” This was the DBX’s first time in London, with the model still undergoing tests, which have so far included a tough Welsh Rally stage. It will go into full production at St Athan in 2020 after its official unveiling later this year.
