Aston Martin Arcadia in Japan Is A Cause For Celebration

Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary celebration is about to happen in November 2023.

2023 marks 110 years since founder Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford officially formed the partnership that went on to create the first Aston Martin car, igniting more than a century of ultra-luxury high performance sports cars, cutting-edge innovation, and high-octane racing success.

Celebrating this momentous achievement is Aston Martin Arcadia, which will feature 110 of the most unique and prized Aston Martins from across the globe, including special, limited edition sportscars from Aston Martin’s headquarters in Gaydon, UK, and the prized collections of passionate Aston Martin owners from across the Asia Pacific region.

Gregory Adams, Regional President – Asia said, “we are very proud to host our first ASTON MARTIN ARCADIA event in Japan to commemorate our 110th anniversary.”

“The first-of-its-kind event promises to be a special three days where we can celebrate our past, present and a glimpse into our future with the likes of Aston Martin Valhalla being displayed to our passionate customers in Asia. The iconic line-up of 110 cars showcases our passion for performance, technology, impeccable craftsmanship and exceptional design and I can’t wait to warmly welcome our owners, fans and community.”
