hosts Aston Martin Launch Party

By P. Joseph

A palatial Miami mansion was the setting for the official US preview of Aston Martin’s new Virage and Vantage S sports cars yesterday.

The launch event was part of a national Virage and Vantage S dealer tour which will see the cars traverse the east and west coasts of America and Canada between now and June.

The event was hosted by in partnership with an array of illustrious sponsors, including Aston Martin and its US distributor, The Collection.

Well-known names from across the Miami social landscape arrived at the luxurious 400 Arvida Parkway residence located in Coral Gables, southwest of Downtown Miami, for a lavish cocktail party

Amongst the attendees was Jorge Uribe, Senior Vice President of Sotheby’s International Realty, agent for the 8-bedroom, $17,000,000 property.

Mr Uribe said: "Having this event at an estate like 400 Arvida really made the night special.

"To see the cars in the motor court like they were part of your private collection and to later retire for drinks on the top deck of your yacht out back – simply amazing.

"The cars, the yachts and the house completely complemented each other."

Guests were also given the opportunity to step on-board “Retro Blue”, a Sanlorenzo 92 yacht that was anchored close by. The 27-metre yacht is available for sale through brokerage firm Edmiston, priced at $10,800,000.

Luxury boat-builder J-craft was on hand to transport visitors from shore to sea, and back again.

Champagne flowed the entire evening courtesy of Moët and Chandon, whilst Belvedere provided a steady stream of Vodka.
