The new Aston Martin Vanquish supercar made its appearance at a star-spangled reception hosted by Ambassador Tim Barrow who said: “Aston Martin is an internationally famous British brand. To remind you, James Bond drove the legendary DB5 model. Aston Martin is also therefore a great example of high quality, reliability, historical heritage and innovation.”
