THE ASTON MARTIN V8 IS OCTANE MAGAZINE’S BOOK OF THE MONTH

We are very pleased to announce that our latest publication, The Aston Martin V8: 1969 – 2000, has been selected by Octane Magazine as their January 2020 ‘Book of the Month’.

Here is an extract from the review, written by Deputy Editor Mark Dixon:

“As serial Aston Martin owner Rowan Atkinson writes in the foreword to Palawan’s latest tour de force: ‘The best stories are human stories and this one is helped hugely by its focus on people; almost 40 interviews were carried out with those who lived this history.’ Which is why this monumental tribute to the original V8-powered Astons includes gems like this one, from Lady Tavistock on life with her husband’s ‘wedge’ Lagonda, the first to be delivered: ‘We had to drive it everywhere because they [Aston Martin] wanted us to be seen in it, and we had to have a low-loader follow us wherever we went because you had no idea when it was going to decide to stop.’”

(Mark Dixon, Octane, January 2020)
