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.

There’s no denying that this is one of the best-looking cars in the world. Is it as quick as a Ferrari 812 Superfast? Who cares.

2018 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera review: First drive

Driving any Aston Martin is a privilege, and this DBS Superleggera is no different. It’s stunningly fast, properly premium, different and classy. The fact that it can also be so easy to drive and benign is a sign of the times at the highest end of the buying scale. It will be rare Down Under too, and that in itself is priceless.

1969 Aston Martin DB6 Review

[An extract from my archives on classic automotive motoring.] To drive it is exactly everything you'd hope for out of a classic grand tourer. Low-sporty seating position with perfect visibility over the long and curvaceous bonnet. The steering wheel is a mammoth wooden artifact, but it doesn't matter...

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.
