The beginning

Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. Both were keen hill climb racers and so they elected to create a car of their own, which they christened 'Coal Scuttle' and is not pictured here. The oldest surviving Aston Martin is the A3, pictured on the left next to 'Razor Blade' - a slim bodied Grand Prix racer.
