Christie’s to auction Daniel Craig’s Aston Martin

DANIEL CRAIG’S ASTON MARTIN

SOLD TO BENEFIT THE OPPORTUNITY NETWORK

PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS AT CHRISTIE’S:

Los Angeles: February 27 – March 3

New York: April 12 – 20

 

 

New York – Christie’s announces that Daniel Craig’s personal Aston Martin, a 2014 ‘Centenary Vanquish’ numbered 007, will be auctioned in New York on April 20 in The Exceptional Sale. All sale proceeds will benefit The Opportunity Network, a nonprofit organization of which Mr. Craig is on the board. Daniel Craig worked with the Chief Creative Director of Aston Martin to customize his limited-edition car. Estimated at $400,000- $600,000, the car is left-hand (U.S.) drive and street ready. The Aston Martin will first be on public view at Christie’s Los Angeles gallery from February 27 – March 3, before the preview and auction in New York.

The winning bidder will also receive the unique opportunity to visit the Aston Martin Headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire and meet with Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Director for a behind-the-scenes tour of the production facilities.

Daniel Craig remarks: “This Aston Martin Vanquish is a tour-de-force of automobile engineering and a distinct pleasure to drive. While I will miss it, I am keen to further the very important work of The Opportunity Network with its sale.”  

Becky MacGuire, Director of The Exceptional Sale, adds: “We are thrilled at the chance to support Daniel Craig’s generosity to The Opportunity Network with the offer of this unique and gorgeous sports car. With its pristine condition, luxury materials, exceptional craftsmanship and impeccable provenance the Aston Martin fits perfectly into Christie’s masterpiece sale.  It’s like a 21st century sculpture that comes equipped with an incredibly fine engine”.

ABOUT THE 2014 CENTENARY EDITION VANQUISH, 007:

In 2014, Aston Martin created just 100 examples worldwide of the ‘Centenary Vanquish’ to celebrate the firm’s 100th anniversary. Designed and hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Warwickshire, England, the Vanquish features a 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine and an automatic gearbox and has a top speed of 183 mph. The car has a lightweight bonded aluminium structure combined with a motorsport inspired carbon fibre exterior, while the handcrafted interior has been made using fine luxury leathers, carbon fibre and aluminium. The car features a bespoke exterior and interior directed by Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, after discussion with Daniel Craig in the design studio at Aston Martin headquarters. Daniel’s preference of denim and dark colors led to the unique midnight blue exterior and deep blue, hand-stitched, luxury leather interior.

Open de España to return to the European Tour.

Open de España to return to the European Tour.

 

 

The Open de España, one of the oldest and most celebrated tournaments in Continental Europe, will return to the European Tour in April. After its absence from the schedule in 2017, the 91stplaying of the Open de España will take place at the Centro Nacional de Golf in Madrid – the home of the Royal Spanish Golf Federation – from April 12-15; the €1.5 million tournament fulfilling a pledge that European Tour Chief Executive Keith Pelley made during a visit to Spain’s capital last year when he promised the event would return to the European Tour in 2018.

 
Pelley said: “I am delighted to announce the return of the Open de España to our schedule. The roll call of champions reads like a Who’s Who of the game itself and we look forward very much to seeing who will add their name to that illustrious list in a couple of months’ time.
 
“Our game thrives on prestigious national championships such as the Open de España and we thank everyone at the Royal Spanish Golf Federation and the Madrid Golf Federation for helping us make this happen.”
 
First contested played in 1912, the Open de España was also the first tournament played in the European Tour’s inaugural season in 1972, with home favourite Antonio Garrido crowned as champion. Several Spanish greats followed onto the Roll of Honour including Seve Ballesteros with three victories (1981 El Prat, 1985 Vallromanes, 1995 Club de Campo Villa de Madrid), Sergio García (2002 El Cortijo), Álvaro Quirós (2010 RCG Sevilla) and Miguel Ángel Jiménez (2014 PGA de Catalunya).
 
Also victorious in the Championship have been Major Champions Arnold Palmer (1975 La Manga Club), Bernhard Langer (1984 and 1989 Campo de Golf Parador El Saler), Sir Nick Faldo (1987 RC Las Brisas), Padraig Harrington (1996 Club de Campo Villa de Madrid) and Charl Schwartzel (2007 Centro Nacional de Golf), alongside European Number Ones Colin Montgomerie (1994 Club de Campo Villa de Madrid) and Robert Karlsson (2001 Campo de Golf Parador El Saler).
 
Schwartzel’s victory, in 2007, came at the Centro Nacional de Golf itself and was the second of his current 11 victories on the European Tour, four years before he won the Masters Tournament at Augusta National.
 
Gonzaga Escauriaza, President of the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, said: “The Open de España is back on the European Tour International Schedule, which is great news for Spanish golf and we are doubly delighted to be welcoming it back to our home at the Centro Nacional de Golf.
 
“Our country has always held a relevant position in Europe, not only because of the outstanding performances of the Spanish golfers, both professionals and amateurs, but also for being one of the main tourist destinations. Therefore, Spain deserves its Open and I am convinced that our professionals will support the event with their presence. I especially would like to thank Keith Pelley and the European Tour, the Madrid Golf Federation, and all who have contributed to make it happen.”
 
Ignacio Guerras, president of the Madrid Golf Federation, said: “The Open de España is set to return to its origins. In total, 43 of its 91 editions will have taken place in Madrid, one of the great cities in Europe, and also host to the first 17 editions of the tournament. Throughout history, Madrilenian golf courses have attracted the greats of the game including Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal, Bernhard Langer, Nick Faldo, Ernie Els, Davis Love III and Fred Couples.”
 
Aside from the 2007 Open de España, the Centro Nacional de Golf has also played host to the 2009 Madrid Masters on the European Tour, won by Englishman Ross McGowan; and the 2006 Challenge de España on the European Challenge Tour, won by Frenchman Adrien Mörk who pipped to the title, amongst others, a young German golfer by the name of Martin Kaymer.
 
With the Open de España now confirmed, the number of Race to Dubai counting tournaments in 2018 still stands at 47 after the news that the Philippines Golf Championship, scheduled for March 15-18, will not now take place this year.
