Aston Martin Models

Regularly voted as one of the world’s coolest brands, Aston Martin has produced luxury high performance cars since 1913. The marque takes its name from a single motoring event in Buckinghamshire, the Aston Clinton Hill Climb. Co-founder Lionel Martin took to the course in the latest creation and emerged victorious, naming the company in its honour: the ultimate expression of pure driving emotion. Martin believed an Aston Martin must be “a quality car of good performance and appearance. A car for the discerning owner driver with fast touring in mind, designed, developed, engineered and built as an individual”. This philosophy has led to the creation of some of Britain’s most iconic sports cars in which the British carmaker fuses the latest technology, time honoured craftsmanship and graceful styling.

The company’s acclaimed product range forms the basis of its race cars. Built on a heritage of GT racing, including their historic 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours victory with the DBR1, Aston Martin returned to competitive motorsport in 2005. Consecutive GT1 class wins at Le Mans in 2007 & 2008 followed, as well as a fourth-place finish in 2009 with a new LMP1 car, the fastest petrol car in the field. In 2009, the V12 Vantage claimed a class victory at the Nürburgring 24-hour race on its race debut. Aston Martin continues to race in the GTE classes of the World Endurance Championship.

In 2016, Aston Martin formed a technology partnership with Red Bull Racing in the Formula One World Championship. From 2018, Aston Martin also became the team’s title sponsor. As of the end of the 2018 season, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing have 9 race victories to their name, a further 31 podiums and they have amassed a total of 1,255 Championship points.
