Aston Martin’s new Art of Living experiences
Want direct access to the Monaco GP or Le Mans 24-hours? Here’s your chance, thanks to exclusive new guest packages
Fancy a shot at life – the Aston way? The latest Art of Living by Aston Martin packages offer exclusive experiences for clients who enjoy the finer things in life.
One highlight of 2018’s international programme is Hokkaido on Ice, an opportunity to test a range of Aston Martin models against the spectacular backdrop of Japan’s northernmost island. Under the tutelage of the manufacturer’s expert testers, guests will undergo the ultimate driving lesson; controlling an Aston in slippery conditions, and so pushing both car and pilot to the limit.
Further focused driving events are scheduled for the next 12 months, including the Wilds of Norway, a drive through the Scottish Highlands and a trip to South Africa. Incorporating the likes of the Atlantic Ocean Road, rugged mountain ranges, stunning lochs and historic castles, with some exotic sun thrown in, the Art of Living programme must be the coolest world ‘cruise’ on offer.
If racing is more your persuasion, there is one package to drop your jaw. Clients will receive exclusive access to the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing garage, along with the chance to meet Formula 1 drivers and team members as they prepare for the new season in Barcelona, before departing for Melbourne for the first race of 2018.
As if that isn’t quite enough, F1 fans can also attend the Monaco Grand Prix, considered the most glamorous race of them all. Besides experiencing the highest levels of passion, drama and performance, you can expect top-class food and drink, and the opportunity to mingle with celebrities. If that doesn’t suit, you can chose to collect an Aston Martin at the Red Bull Racing HQ in the UK before hitting the road and driving to the legendary Belgian Spa-Francorchamps circuit. There, you can kick back to enjoy the unfolding Belgian Grand Prix.
As Aston Martin looks to defend its 2017 win at the Le Mans 24-hours, Art of Living 2018 clients are invited to join the championship team as the drivers prepare to take on the best rivals in the world. Residing at the grand Chateau de Jalesnes, guests will beat the queues by commuting by helicopter to and from the circuit.
Goodwood is also a firm fixture for this year’s season. Art of Living incorporates both the Festival of Speed and the Revival, giving clientele unprecedented access to the heart of the action on the Duke of Richmond’s estate.
For those of a budding racing nature, the Nürburgring Driving Academy experience will offer guests one-on-one tuition on the world-famous Nordschleife, providing experience behind the wheel on one of the world’s most brutal, and gruelling, race tracks. Taking an Aston Martin around the Nürburgring will craft memories you’ll never forget.
Prefer to remain closer to home? The Art of Living now offers an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look at Aston Martin’s global headquarters. This allows unique access to the heritage centre and Aston Martin Works, not to mention a driving experience at Millbrook Proving Ground.
