Luxury carmaker Aston Martin has been named the UK's coolest brand for the fifth time in six years.
Aston Martin topped a poll which comprises an array of leading international contemporary design-driven brands, including Apple and Bang & Olufsen, as well as other leading automotive brands.
Aston Martin was also voted the top automotive brand surpassing a host of other luxury and specialist manufacturers to complete a double success.
Stephen Cheliotis, chief executive of The Centre for Brand Analysis and chairman of the CoolBrands Council said: “Smooth, sexy and sophisticated; British built, high quality and hand finished, let’s be honest, young or old, male or female, opinion former or British public, who wouldn’t aspire to own what is truly the coolest car on the road. Number one in five of the last six years, this British icon is truly the coolest of the cool.”
Since it was established in 2001, the CoolBrands initiative has been canvassing the opinions of experts and consumers to identify the coolest brand in the UK, based on factors including style, innovation, authenticity, originality and desirability.
