G24 meets Aston Martin DB11 in Swiss mountains

This was always going to be a match made in heaven:  A 24 hours of Le Mans win-inspired Lonville G24 on the wrist, a brand new DB11 and Swiss mountain roads just outside Lonville-s base in Lugano.

G24 takes ultimate victory

Remember how Gabriele Gardel won the 24 hours of Le Mans? He crossed fhe finish line with nearly 300km/h to win his class, wearing a G24 prototype. It was an incredible experience. You can read about that amazing week-end here. It then took us nearly five year to get the G24 just right. You can’t…
