Aston Martin Opens Shanghai Showroom
Built in the Pudong district of Shanghai, the dealership has space for 18 brand new cars, a workshop space for repairs and services, as well as a café and lounge.
The new dealership joins six other dealerships in China, three of which, including the new one, are all owned and managed by an enthusiastic Aston fan, Mr Zheng Ting.
Dr Matthew Bennett, Asia Pacific Regional Director said: “We are excited with Aston Martin’s ongoing development and performance in China. This wonderful new dealership sets the benchmark for luxury car showrooms across Asia and the experience each and every visitor should expect.
“With our existing China network of experienced Aston Martin dealerships, further future growth earmarked across the coming year and a number of exciting product developments to be announced during 2012, our China business is expected to continue growing strongly.”
The dealership has all of the current models built by Aston Martin, including the limited run One-77 and, when it arrives later on in the year, the V12 Zagato.
Aston entered the Chinese market in 2008 and has seen sales double since more dealerships were opened last year.
