Aston Martin

Aston Martin was founded in England in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford before producing its first car in 1915. The company name was born of Martin’s surname and the Aston Clinton Hillclimb where he raced. From 1994, Aston Martin was owned by the Ford Motor Company, before the British marque was purchased by a joint venture company in 2007. With a history steeped in motorsport and ties to the James Bond franchise, the brand has maintained an air of exclusivity that continues today.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Review

The existing Aston Martin V12 Vantage is my favourite model to emerge from the British concern, more of a personal preference than any of the others in the car maker’s well-reviewed range. True confession, though – much of the car’s appeal is the result of first impressions gathered during a very memorable press event in May 2010...

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster has to be one of the most gorgeous drop tops in the world. It’s truly amazing that they’ve managed to shoehorn a 5.9-litre V12 into such a small car, there’s literally no room to spare under the bonnet. It’s pumps out 421 kilowatts and 620Nm to the rear wheels...

2011 ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE Review

I had trouble deciding between this car and the 911. In terms of performance and handling, I've no doubt that the 911 wins, but the Aston Martin Vantage is the car that always raises my pulse when I approach it. It is hand made and feels very solid. If there is one car I want to own for the rest of my life, this is the one.
