You don’t have to be a double-0 agent to appreciate an Aston Martin. Based in Warwickshire, England, Aston Martin has been tailoring incredible cars to her customer’s specifications for over 90 years. The company derived the name from one of the founders’ names, Lionel Martin, and the success they enjoyed at the Aston Hill climb in 1914.

Like many other exclusive brands, Aston Martin has changed hands several times since inception. They were most recently purchased in March, 2007 by a consortium of Aston Martin enthusiasts and investors, including Prodrive chairman David Richards. Aston Martin vehicles continue to appear in new Bond films, including the 2006 Casino Royale.

Our latest cars content can be found in the Cars category in our new magazine format and in the Aston Martin tag.
