About Aston Martin
Founded in 1914, Aston Martin sports cars were always intended from the outset to have a distinctive and very individual character. The brand has stayed true to these values since, creating some of the world's most iconic sports cars, such as the DB5 famously associated with James Bond to modern classics such as the Vantage, DB9, DBS and four-door Rapide. These cars are joined in 2011 by Vantage S and the new Virage, plus Aston Martin's definitive sports car - the One-77; a piece of sculptural automotive art that is the ultimate representation of the company's technical ability, ambitions and values.
Aston Martin remains at the forefront of contemporary manufacturing, a cultural force that embodies design and engineering excellence, and a brand with a truly special heritage. Renowned around the world, Aston Martin enters the next decade with the promise of radical innovation and change, without losing the core qualities that make this strong, independent British brand so widely revered.
