A new Aston Martin dealership in Newcastle is a dazzling showcase for the iconic marque

Fans of the Aston Martin brand will be blown away by the latest development at Silverlink Retail Park.

For this is the site of a brand new dealership for the iconic marque – beloved by the debonair spy James Bond – fulfilling Aston Martin’s long-held ambition to have a retail site in the Newcastle area. Previously, the brand was sold from a site in Houghton-le-Spring.

The £4m state-of-the-art facility is one of the biggest Aston Martin outlets in the UK, covering over 1,900 square metres and serving the whole of the North East, from North Yorkshire to the Scottish borders, and Cumbria.


Set across two floors, the dealership, which is an FCA-regulated licensed credit broker and part of the Doncaster-based Decidebloom Ltd, features a brand new showroom, home to a stunning 14-car display area for new cars, as well as an extensive amount of pre-owned, timeless stock.

It also offers customers various finance options, including leasing and Personal Contract Purchases, PCP, packages for customers to take advantage of, as well as a professional service operation, staffed by Aston Martin master technicians.

With every visit, customers will be met with an experienced team who are not only dedicated to delivering an exceptional service, but who are also passionate about the Aston Martin brand.

“We are looking to build the brand and help it grow, but it has been extremely popular in the North. We have a lot of established customers here in the region,’’ says dealer principal Paul Thursby.

So, what’s so special about Aston Martin?

“It’s one of the most iconic marques,” says Paul. “People smile when they see them. It’s the Britishness, the elegance and the beauty of the cars and, of course, the Bond connections. All of these factors have combined to make Aston Martin a cult brand.’’


It’s a love which is shared by the dealership’s team, who, between them, have 99 years of experience with the marque.

In a further nod to the UK’s most famous spy, the dealership also features a Q Lounge. Q by Aston Martin is a service which allows the purchaser to personalise their car in terms of features, materials, colours and textures, allowing the driver to express their personality through their vehicle.

The Q Lounge will be there to facilitate this process with a virtual configurator, equipped with a large screen to allow the owner to visualise their unique creation with a huge selection of physical samples of colours and materials to choose from.

Whatever the configuration, one thing is for sure; the resulting car will be something of a classic.
