Factory tour of PRODRIVE
As many of you know, Aston Martin has been sold to a group led by David Richards who is the head of Prodrive. His company already runs the Aston Martin racing team as well as the Subaru rally team, so I thought it would be a good idea to take some of my M5 buddies along for a behind the scenes tour.
Here is the report:

Wow, thanks for sharing the link and pictures. Must have been a helluva meet. Nice look into a little known brand - Atleast over on this side. These guys are mean businessmen with a fabulous understanding of all things cars. I do hope they turn Aston around.
P.S.:Tell us about the 70 miles outside of London drive! Especially the CSL
