Aston Martin has opened a flagship showroom in China, in the Pudong district of Shanghai.

With space for up to 18 cars, the showroom includes a café, lounge, merchandise display and sales area, fully equipped service centre, Jaeger-LeCoultre watches and Bang & Olufsen audio/visual displays.

Opened in conjunction with the existing Aston Martin dealer group, owned and managed by Zheng Ting, this is the brand's seventh outlet in China and Zheng's third.

Aston Martin entered China in 2008 and now has dealerships in Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Showrooms will open shortly in Chongqing, Shenyang and Ordos with further expansion planned during 2012. Asia sales in 2011 rose 103% year on year.
