Celebrating 100 years of the legendary Aston Martin

From the origins of the Aston Martin marque through the gadget-laden stars of numerous James Bond films, this is a history of the prestigious cars that continue to be market leaders throughout the world. Aston Martin was nearly called Bamford Martin, as founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford were already selling cars together, but in the end the company was named after the Aston Hill speed hill-climb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire. Their first car was produced in 1915, but war and financial troubles often tempered progress, and the company went through various changes in ownership on its way to becoming the global icon it is today. Following the typical Story series format, this sleekest of cars is celebrated with a wealth of color photographs, facts, and statistics.
