Ahead of the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship, which is scheduled for this weekend (Sunday 17th April), Aston Martin has teamed up with property developer Mount Anvil to get fans excited.
On the 12th April the car manufacturer airlifted a £1 Million 2016 V8 Vantage GTE Challenger, over 300 feet into the sky by crane onto the 31st floor of a Canary Wharf skyscraper.
The chosen destination, Dollar Bay, is Mount Anvil’s dockside, 31 storey, crystalline glass tower, which overlooks the financial district of London.
The stunt launched the partnership between Aston Martin and Mount Anvil, with the brands stating the companies will engage in what has been coined as ‘knowledge-sharing exercises’ throughout the racing season.
Two drivers from Aston Martin carried out a practice change over, this practice run is crucial ahead of Sunday’s race and presumably a first for the drivers who completed this maneuver 300 feet above London.
