IT wouldn’t have bothered Bond.
But it was a bit of a bore for Aston Martin when rain and hail washed out the worldwide launch of two of their new cars in Andalucia.
The company – made famous by the James Bond movies – chose the mountain town of Ronda for the second time to showcase the new Virage and Vantage S supercars.
The only dampener was keeping the 150 journalists who had flown in from around the world dry.
“We were a bit surprised by the weather but it didn’t change anything in the end,” spokesman Matthew Clarke told the Olive Press.
“Everyone here has been so welcoming. Ronda is a beautiful place and was the ideal location to show case our latest models.”
Excited onlookers were able to catch a glimpse of the new models which were parked up in one of the main old town squares.
The group then set-off to the exclusive Ascari race track – which counts Jamiroquai as a member – to test the vehicles at high speeds.
Visiting Andalucia for four weeks, the team is touring the region using the beautiful mountain scenery and diverse landscapes to promote the new cars.
