Love of beauty is taste,
creation of beauty is art

True beauty has the power to inspire and elevate. Every day, it enriches our lives in infinite ways both obvious and subtle. A moving sonnet, a powerful film, an infectious rhythm, a rare vintage, an impressionist landscape – when we encounter singular works of beauty, our senses are heightened, and somehow the way in which we perceive our world is changed forever. Beauty is timeless, as are the artisans who pour heart and soul into its creation. Their talent, genius and muse create gifts that are beyond measure.

Heritage

A fiercely independent spirit and a rich and prestigious history defines Aston Martin as truly unique in the automotive world.

Birth of a legend

The incredible story begins on 15th January, 1913 when founders Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin created Bamford and Martin Limited, working from a humble workshop on Henniker Mews in London. Their vision for cars with an impeccable design and supreme performance captivated the public’s imagination and still commands the same emotive fascination over 100 years later. In 1914 the name Aston Martin was adopted. Fittingly, this decision was inspired by Lionel’s success at the Aston Hill Climb in Buckinghamshire, England. Competition has always been in their blood. Since those pioneering days, Aston Martin has become an iconic brand synonymous with handcrafted luxury, peerless beauty, incredible performance and international motorsport glory.

The very essence of Aston Martin is something you feel each time you look at one of our cars. It sweeps over you every moment you spend behind the wheel. Powerful, exhilarating and precise yet timelessly elegant and sophisticated; our cars blend iconic design, exceptional engineering and unrivalled craftsmanship to create an unforgettable, emotional experience.
