Aston Martin is not only one of the best-known British luxury brands, but it is also firmly entrenched in pop culture with the DB5 and its successors as a James Bond vehicle.
The rapid success story of Aston Martin
Aston Martin's rapid success story began almost exactly 110 years ago with its founding by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The brand reached its peak in 1947 under David Brown, whose initials can be found on its legendary models for good reason. The company, closely associated with racing, still pursues the goal of making racing cars for the road. Aston Martin's history on the track is at least as exciting as the company's history. It ranges from its legendary victory in the Aston Hill Climb in 1914 to its success at Le Mans in 1959 to its participation in Formula 1 from 2021, associated with names such as Stirling Moss or Sebastian Vettel.
But Aston Martin not only leads the way when it comes to top technical performance; thanks to its elegant design and luxurious comfort, the cars literally shine with British understatement. No wonder, then, that none other than James Bond has relied on Aston Martin for his company car since 1964's Goldfinger.
