The final inspection has been completed! With huge thanks to Dr Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, we can join the final inspection process for the car and the symbolic moment the wings badges are installed and it becomes a real Aston Martin.

We’ve followed this process throughout, from joining at the start when the body shell entered the paintshop to turn Cobalt Blue, to the production line for the powertrain marriage and final trim stages before rolling off and the very first start of the engine and testing before coming back now to see it being signed off and ready to head on towards the dealer and hit the road.

I cannot thank Dr Palmer and the entire team who have been involved in both my experience behind the scenes with the building of my Aston Martin Vantage GT8 enough for both the amazing opportunities on a personal level but also being able to share this content with you in so much detail. I truly hope you’ve enjoying seeing such a personal look inside a supercar factory and what goes into making such a fine vehicle.
