As if there weren't already enough reasons to desire an Aston Martin, Galpin Motors in Van Nuys, California, provides yet another. When you purchase a new DB9, Vantage or DBS, you also get an electronic access card to Galpin's Club Aston.
While all Aston Martin dealerships provide such an owners lounge where you can stop by at any time to hang out with other owners, Galpin has gone several steps further by turning its lounge into a Bond villain's avant garde hide away. There's a hidden entrance, a bar, quasi-futuristic furniture, a small library, giant metal vault doors and a turn table in the middle of it all where new Astons are unveiled to their owners under an oh-so-cool Bond-like gun barrel design.
What better place, then, for Aston Martin to showcase its magnificent One-77 super car, fresh from its grand unveiling at Pebble Beach?
