Aston Martin – The Birth of a Legacy
Aston Martin‘s history is marked by innovation, quality, design and evolution.
Founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in 1913, this British luxury brand is the fulfillment of the dream to create powerful cars with a touch of luxury inside and out. However, it went through a long and difficult journey before it made a name for itself in the automotive world.
Prior to the production of their first-ever car, the company had to struggle to overcome the obstacles of World War 1, which prompted the founders to serve their country under different military branches.
When the war was over, the company was re-established in Kensington and revitalized with new car designs. Bamford decided to leave the company in 1920 and funding began to originate from a different source. Come 1922, it built cars that fared well in the French Grand Prix by setting world records in endurance and speed. Unluckily, the company faced bankruptcy in 1924 and was purchased by Lady Charnwood only to face the same issue the following year. Ultimately, the factory closed in 1926, which prompted Martin to quit the business.
That same year, the company was renamed Aston Martin Motors and got the support of different affluent investors. A renowned designer entered the picture and racers such as the Le Mans, 1929 Aston Martin International, and the Ulster quite reached success. In 1936, the company decided to build cars designed and suitable for the open road.
