    Aston Martin History

    Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford formed Aston Martin in 1913. The two had joined forces the previous year as Bamford & Martin to sell Singer cars from premises in Callow Street, London. Martin raced specials at Aston Clinton on Aston Hill, and the duo decided to build their own vehicles. Martin built the first Aston Martin by installing a four-cylinder Coventry-Simplex motor to the frame of a 1908 Isotta Fraschini. They moved into Henniker Mews in Kensington and built their first automobile in March 1915. Because of the onset of the First World War, with both men joining the conflict, production could not begin.

    After the war, they relocated to Abingdon Road in Kensington and created a new vehicle. Bamford left in 1920, and Bamford & Martin was resurrected thanks to Count Louis Zborowski's finances. Bamford & Martin built vehicles for the French Grand Prix in 1922, which went on to achieve speed and endurance benchmarks at Brooklands. A total of 55 automobiles were constructed for sale in two different configurations: long wheelbase and short wheelbase. Bamford & Martin declared bankruptcy in 1924 and was purchased by Dorothea, Lady Charnwood, who appointed her son John Benson to the board of directors. In 1925, Bamford & Martin ran into financial difficulties again, and Martin was forced to sell the firm.

    Later in 1925, Bill Renwick, Augustus Bertelli, and a group of investors led by Lady Charnwood took over the company. They renamed it Aston Martin Motors and relocated it to Feltham's old Whitehead Aircraft Limited Hanworth factory. Bertelli was the technical director and designer of all new Aston Martins between 1926 and 1937, which became known as "Bertelli cars". The majority were open two-seater sports cars designed by Bert Bertelli's brother, with a few long-chassis four-seater tourers, dropheads, and saloons being made.

    In 1932, financial troubles resurfaced. Lance Prideaux Brune recovered Aston Martin for a year before passing it on to Sir Arthur Sutherland. Aston Martin opted to focus on-road vehicles in 1936, manufacturing only 700 until World War II interrupted production. During the war, production moved to aeroplane components.

    David Brown Limited, a long-established (1860) privately owned Huddersfield gear and machine tool maker, purchased Aston Martin in 1947, bringing it under the ownership of its Tractor Group. They revealed plans to build their Le Mans prototype, the DB2, in April 1950, succeeded by the DB2/4 in 1953, the DB2/4 MkII in 1955, the DB Mark III in 1957, and the DB4 in 1958. While these models helped Aston Martin establish a good racing pedigree, the DB4 stood out and gave birth to the legendary DB5 in 1963. With the DB6 (1965–70) and DBS (1967–1972), Aston maintained its grand touring aesthetic. In the years thereafter, Aston Martin has been acquired, owned, and sold by a variety of different persons and corporations, frequently incurring financial losses yet continuing to build iconic and desirable automobiles up to the present.
