Rigval posted a blog entry in MyAutoBlogAston Martin has recently spread its wings to Kuala Lumpur with the opening of its brand spanking new dealership located right beside the Federal Highway in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The eight million Ringgit facility officially opened on the 16th of July 2012 and finally brings the Aston Martin experience to Malaysians who have been getting their Aston Martin kicks from grey importers. Members of the media and a select number of owners from Malaysia and even Singapore were given a brief run through of the illustrious brand. This gave attendees a glimpse into the world of Aston Martin as well as some good news to Aston Martin owners in Singapore. The good news is that Aston Martin customers from Singapore would now have peace of mind when they drive their cars into Malaysia as they can now be assured that if anything happens to their cars, there is now a proper place to get them looked at. Prior to Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur, customer cars would actually be left either at the hands of private workshops who do not have much experience working with the cars or with workshops that does not have instant access to spare parts. Prior to this those with Aston Martins would actually seek getting their cars sent back to Singapore for even minor servicing. And now Aston Martin customers need not do so. Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur is actually a collaboration between Berjaya Corporation Berhad and Aston Martin Singapor with Jelita Seleksi Sdn Bhd as its vehicle. At the launch, Aston Martin was represented by mainly Mr Andy Gawthorpe, Global Sales Director, Dr SK Djeng, Chairman of Aston Martin Singapore, Dato' Francis Lee Director of Aston Martin Singapore and Executive Director of Berjaya Corporation as well as the Executive Director of Jelita Seleksi Sdn Bhd, Mr Nazrul Mohtar. Aston Martin displayed most of their current line-up with the Aston Martin DBS in the forefront. The newly launched Aston Martin Vanquish and limited to 1000 unit Aston Martin V12 Roadster wasn't around as yet and should make an appearance in this region by the end of the year. However a notable appearance was the last of the line Singapore registered Aston Martin Vanquish S from the mid-00s (pictured below). So all in all good news to those lucky people who can afford an Aston Martin or two. A drive to the Genting Highlands can be even more trouble free than before.
