Aston Martin Works has announced plans to “significantly expand” its provenance certification programme for classic Aston Martin sports cars with the help of global dealer network.
The manufacturer hopes the new level of certification will make it more accessible to owners of classic Aston Martin cars around the world.
The new, two tier, certification service is being launched to allow enthusiast owners to establish the history and current technical condition of their cars more quickly.
Aston Martin Works’ restoration and provenance leader, Dominic Bridger, said: “What the new Assured Provenance scheme offers is a previously unavailable level of certification that will prove more expedient for owners of classic Aston Martin sports cars all over the globe.”
The new certification scheme sits beneath Assured Provenance Certified in terms of its price and level of detail – starting at £3,995, plus local taxes – and provides owners with an insight into their cars’ heritage and current condition.
A trained Aston Martin technician will carry out the examination, which is available via the brand’s 164-strong worldwide dealer network.
Following a comprehensive review process, and with assistance available from Aston Martin Works technicians at any time, information on the car is gathered locally and then passed to the expert team in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire for the Assured Provenance report to be prepared.
The resulting authoritative report, reviewed by the senior team at Aston Martin Works and including original history dating right back to build record information where possible, is then provided to the owner accompanied by an Assured Provenance certificate.
Aston Martin Works’ president, Paul Spires, said: “As the global appeal of classic Aston Martin sports cars grows, the demand for the brand’s new Assured Provenance service is certain to grow with it.”
The first customer cars being submitted for authentication under the new Assured Provenance scheme will be reviewed by the experts at Aston Martin Works in the next few weeks.
