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.
