Facts about Aston Martin
The car maker was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. Their first car was named Aston Martin, since Lionel Martin was a passionate driver and scored his very first victory at Aston Hill near Aston Clinton.
World War 2 devastated the company and in 1947 Sir David Brown made a decision to buy the company after driving one of the cars. David Brown created the famous DB models.
The further development of the DB series led to the DB 5 in 1963. The car become famous after its appearance in the James Bond movie Goldfinger. This was early product placement and no money changed hands and very nearly didn't happen as Aston were reluctant to get involved. Today brands pay millions to for their cars to be seen in the right movies.
