Brief History of Aston Martin
The first Aston Martin was a tuned
version of a Singer sports car, built by
Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin, who
lent his surname to half of the car’s
marquee.
The “Aston” part came from the fact
that the cars did rather well in the Aston
Clinton hill climb event, hence the
company became known as the
“Aston Martin.”
