Jacksons continue to drive student support

10th October 2013

As part of its continued support of the JCG Foundation, Jacksons hosted students at the Aston Martin lecture, held at The Pomme D’Or Hotel on Thursday 10th October 2013.

 CIGPE hosted a lecture on the engineering behind the new Aston Martin Vanquish. Alan Bennett, Chief Electrical Engineer at Aston Martin, give an insight into the development of the Aston Martin Vanquish.

Sitting proudly at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, this breath-taking new super grand tourer represents the zenith of current Aston Martin design and engineering. Vanquish is a new Aston Martin featuring the next generation of renowned VH architecture as well as a new 6.0-litre V12 engine. The design represents the latest take on Aston Martin’s iconic visual language. Vanquish unquestionably sees the brand continue its enviable tradition of producing the most beautiful sports cars in the world.

A level Design & Technology students Megan Barette, Charlotte Black, Rachael Brown, Katie Eaton and Talor Hooson gratefully accepted an invite by Jacksons to attend. As keen product designers they realised the importance and impact of effective design on society, both from an engineering and economic perspective. The prestigious Aston Martin brand is an excellent and exciting case study for the students to research and consider. ‘This is an excellent opportunity for students at JCG to have access to, and gain insight into one of the most revered car brands in the world. Jacksons enjoys a very strong relationship with Aston Martin as their only franchised dealer in Jersey, and we are delighted to support this event and to provide this opportunity to the JCG student community’ commented Charles Tennant, General Manager, Jacksons Jersey.
