Aston Martin History
Aston Martin is a British vehicle manufacturer located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, England. It was started by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin in 1913. The two men had entered into a partnership to sell Singer-built cars in 1912. The two men decided to make their own cars, naming their model Aston Martin after Martin’s love of motor racing. climbing. on Aston Hill (which is close to Aston Clinton). The first Aston Martin to be produced was a Coventry-simplex four-cylinder engine that was on the chassis of a 1908 Isotta Fraschini. The car was built before they managed to acquire the manufacturing facility in Kensington at Henniker Place (this was in 1915). Unfortunately, mass production of his cars could not start as soon as the partners had hoped due to the outbreak of World War I, which was when Martin joined the Royal Army Service Corps and they sold all of his machinery to the Sopwith Aviation Company.
The company was re-founded and revitalized after the war ended when the company received funding from Count Louis Zborowski. Bramford left the company in 1920, but not until they designed a new car.
Throughout automobile history, Aston Martins were built to compete in the French Grand Prix (1922); have set world endurance and speed records at Brooklands.

In 2007, the company was bought by David Richards, who is the president of Prodrive. It is still co-owned by Ford (a development that occurred in 1994). The company has also recently opened distributors in Europe and China. Now the company has distributors in 28 countries.
