Aston Martin Models
Aston Martin was founded in 1913, but its real fame as a manufacturer of luxury sports cars and GTs has been established since the Second World War - and, in particularly, since the adoption of the firm’s cars by the makers of the James Bond movies.
Based in Gaydon in Warwickshire, Aston Martin currently has a core of four models in its line-up, although it splits those cars into various niches, often through special editions. The entry-level car is the V8 Vantage - available as a coupe and a convertible - and the same chassis also forms the base for the V12 Vantage.
Aston is particularly synonymous with V12 engines, and that type of motor powers the larger cars in its line-up: the DB9, the Vanquish and Vanquish Volante, and the four-door Rapide S luxury saloon. The Aston Martin Vulcan sits at the very top of the range - although just 24 examples of the £1.8m supercar will be built, and they’re all for track use only.
