“A fiercely independent spirit and a rich and prestigious history defines Aston Martin as truly unique in the automotive world. Their incredible story starts on 15th January 1913 when founders Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin created Bamford and Martin Ltd, working from a humble workshop on Henniker Mews in London. Their vision for cars with impeccable design and supreme performance captivated the public’s imagination and still commands the same emotive fascination over 100 years later.”
In 1914 they changed the name to Aston Martin. Believe it or not, this decision was inspired by Lionel’s success at the Aston Hill Climb in Buckinghamshire. The Climb marks the competitive DNA in their bloodline. Since the pioneering days, Aston Martin has become an iconic brand synonymous with hand-crafted luxury, peerless beauty, incredible performance and international motorsport glory.
