Dramatic stunt is the latest event undertaken to celebrate Aston Martin's centenary
Aston Martin has celebrated its centenary with the spectacular stunt of using a helicopter to lift a Vanquish on to the top of Dubai's Burj Al Arab hotel.
The helipad on top of the sail-shaped hotel is 1000ft above sea level, and it is the first time a car has ever been placed on the helipad.
The stunt is part of Aston's centenary celebrations, which kicked off on Tuesday with the unveiling of a plaque in Chelsea at the location where the company was first formed as Bamford & Martin.
Special centenary editions of Aston's entire model range have also been made available, while model launches — including a revised Rapide and Vanquish Volante — are expected over the next 12 months.
