Aston Martin

It was 1913 when the foundations were set for arguably one of the greatest manufacturers in history.

Two men, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, joined forces to sell Singer cars and prepare them for racing and hill climbing. The hill on which much of their sucess was based was called Aston, so when Martin and Bamford decided to create their own car, they decided not to go with their original idea, Bamford Martin, but with the name that nowadays seems so prestigious: Aston Martin.

In 1915, the first Aston Martin was registered, and since then the compay has grown and grown to produce arguably some of the most beautiful cars ever made.

    I didn’t know that about the Hill being called “Aston”. I guess Robert Bamford didn’t mind not having his name in the title then?
