Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

Before even Agent 007 got hold of an Aston Martin, there was one very special hero, who was not just known for winning races but also winning a war. Few may have heard the name Jock Horsfall- a chap who played his part in World War II and defeating the Nazis. Prior to the war, Jock raced cars for a living and was recruited into the military for a very special role.

“Operation Mincemeat” wouldn’t have been a success without him. He later on went on to win races for Aston Martin. He is also known for completing the 24 Hours of Spa solo- in which he finished 4th overall. So, what better way to celebrate the man who drove a dead body to Scotland overnight so that the allied force could launch a surprise attack on the island of Sicily and change the course of the war, than to take the same journey in a brand new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante.
