Aston Martin's 100-year celebrations show no signs of slowing down.

The latest extravaganza collection from the iconic British sports car maker was a gathering at London's Kensington Gardens at the weekend - reputedly the largest ever single gathering in the marque's history.

Entry for the day was free and an impressive 50,000 visitors who got to inspect around 550 Aston Martin models worth approximately NZ$1.92 billion.

Included in the display was a timeline of highly significant models as well as displays dedicated to Aston Martin's 50-year love affair with James Bond - with seven movie cars on display - and its motorsports heritage.

Every significant Aston Martin road car was represented from ''A3'', the oldest surviving car, to the Vanquish Centenary Edition, forthcoming V12 Vantage S and Vanquish Volante. Meanwhile the luxury sports car maker's '' future was represented by the CC100 Speedster Concept.

Another display showcased the diverse and bespoke nature of the brand with cars rarely seen outside of private collections including a brace of new Zagato models, the trio of Bertone Jets, and a number of other unique cars commissioned over the years by passionate customers around the world.

Dedicated motorsport highlights were the displays of the Ulster, iconic DBR1, legendary DB4 GT Zagato and Gulf-liveried V8 Vantage GTE.
