Aston Martin is celebrating 100 years. Though its cars have a long and illustrious history, the company still has contemporary appeal, continuing its association with James Bond and coming second in this year's UK Cool Brands.

Aston Martin has held many events this year to mark the anniversary and it has also commissioned artist James Hart Dyke to create a set of paintings reflecting the marque's racing pedigree.

This includes works featuring Sir Stirling Moss in his heyday, classic models including the DB5 and their race cars in pit stops and racing around the Nürburgring.

The most eye-catching paintings are of the CC100, the latest concept car that has been designed specifically for the centenary, and a nod to the classic cars while but using the latest technology.

The Aston Martin Centenary Art exhibition is on at Aston Marin W-One, 113 Park Lane, W1K 7AJ from 22-29 November. The exhibition is open to the public and free to enter.
