Aston Martin is greatly expanding its vehicle engineering facilities with the opening of a cutting edge prototype and vehicle development base at the new MIRA Technology Park in Warwickshire, UK. A 15,800ft2 building accommodates a key part of Aston Martin’s prototype and vehicle development operations and represents a significant investment in support of current and future model programs.

Ian Minards, product development director at Aston Martin (pictured left), said, “The cutting edge facilities at MIRA, together with its reputation for quality and excellent security, make it an ideal place for us to carry out some of our prototype development work. This excellent facility gives our engineering teams exactly what they need to ensure the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars continue to be truly class-leading.”

MIRA CEO, George Gillespie (pictured right), commented, “As an iconic British automotive brand, Aston Martin is a very welcome addition to MIRA Technology Park. By selecting MIRA as a new location for their prototype and vehicle development teams, Aston Martin is able to take advantage of an entirely bespoke and secure facility whilst also taking advantage of MIRA’s extensive research and testing facilities right on their doorstep.”
