They were joined by singer-songwriter Adam Lambert. The world of fashion was represented by top models Winnie Harlow, Lais Ribeiro, Alessandra Ambrosio and Poppy Delevingne, adds ‘Variety’.

The DB12 was unveiled by Aston Martin Formula One drivers Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso, who’s himself been the subject of a five-part docuseries, ahead of their participation this week in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Described by Aston Martin executive chairman Lawrence Stroll as “the world’s first Super Tourer”, the DB12 heralds a new era of high performance and ultra-luxury for the British company. It boasts of a top speed of 202mph and best-in-class power output of 680PS/800Nm from its 4.0 V8 twin-turbo engine, notes ‘Variety’.

At the DB12 unveiling, 110 guests from across the fields of entertainment, sport, the arts and business were treated to a live performance from British singer and actor Rina Sawayama, and tracks from DJ Peggy Gou.
