Ultra-Luxury Aston Martin DB12 Launch Edition Purchased At Star-Studded 2023 AMFAR Gala Cannes


The AMFAR Gala Cannes is an esteemed event that supports the crucial work of amfAR, a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy. With a legacy dating back to 1985, amfAR has raised nearly $617 million and awarded over 3,500 grants to research teams worldwide.

The privileged opportunity to own the very first Aston Martin DB12 customer car was purchased for $1,600,000 (€1.5 Million) in a star-studded charity auction at the AMFAR Gala Cannes.

In a dazzling display of philanthropy and glamour, the AMFAR Gala Cannes once again captivated attendees as it raised an astonishing $1,600,000 (€1.5 Million) through the sale of the coveted Aston Martin DB12 Launch Edition. The star-studded event, held at the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, was the highlight of the Cannes International Film Festival, attracting an array of luminaries from the worlds of entertainment, art, and fashion.

Grammy award-winning host Queen Latifa, along with actors Rebel Wilson and Fan Bing Bing, graced the red carpet alongside supermodels Sara Sampaio, Bianca Balti, Heidi Klum, Stella Maxwell, and Alessandra Ambrosio. The glitzy affair also saw the attendance of notable figures such as acting couple Amy Jackson and Ed Westick, as well as German athlete Alica Schmidt, all joining as guests of Aston Martin.

The auction of the Aston Martin DB12 Launch Edition was a momentous occasion, expertly presented by Eva Longoria and James Marsden. The sleek and alluring sports car surpassed all expectations, exceeding its initial auction estimates and becoming the undisputed star of the night. The unprecedented amount raised from the sale will contribute significantly to the foundation for AIDS research, bolstering efforts to develop a cure for HIV.

The fortunate buyer of the Launch Edition DB12 will receive the privilege of owning the very first customer car produced, making it a truly exclusive possession. Adorned in the striking Iridescent Emerald specification unveiled at the car’s global debut in Cannes, this luxury car exudes sophistication and elegance.

Adding to its allure, the DB12 Launch Edition is the first vehicle to feature special touches curated by the Q by Aston Martin bespoke service, commemorating the marque’s historic 110th anniversary.

As an extraordinary bonus, the lucky owner will have the opportunity for Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team drivers Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso to personally sign the engine cover. This exclusive touch will be cherished and preserved by Aston Martin, honoring the exceptional nature of this high-performance, ultra-luxury model.
