In the century since it was founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin on January 13, 1913, Aston Martin has created classic cars that range from the Le Mans-winning DB2 to 2013's Vanquish. As in his bestselling books on the Mercedes 300 SL and the Porsche 911, Rene Staud transforms automobile photography into a sensual experience and The Aston Martin Book allows readers to absorb the aura of a true British classic.

John Christopher takes a fresh look at 100 years of Britain's most iconic car company, Aston Martin. From the origins of the Aston Martin marque, through the gadget-laden stars of numerous James Bond films, to the prestigious super-cars that continue to be market leaders throughout the world. Aston Martin was nearly called Bamford Martin, as founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford were already selling cars together, but in the end the company was named after the Aston Hill speed hill-climb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire. Their first car was produced in 1915 but war and financial troubles often tempered progress and the company went through various changes in ownership on its way to becoming the global icon it is today. Following the typical Story book format, this sleekest of cars is celebrated with a wealth of colour photographs, facts and statistics.

Read the full story of Great Britain's best-loved sports car manufacturer with Aston Martin DB, an exquisitely produced, photo-loaded, history by Aston Martin expert, Andrew Noakes. The name David Brown is synonymous with the glory days of Aston Martin, when a tiny British sports car company was rescued from near-extinction and turned into a marque that could compete with Ferrari--and win. Stylish design, lavish illustration from the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and meticulously researched text come together in this large-format, 224-page book to create a superb celebration of the 70th anniversary of DB Aston Martins in 2017. There's a wealth of detail on the Aston Martin DB road and race cars, both from the David Brown era of 1947-1972 and the modern DB era from 1993 onwards, together high quality images and specification tables for all the key models. Aston Martin DB 70 Years is a fitting celebration of one of the world's most enduring sports cars. The fast, beautiful sports cars that Aston Martin built under Brown's ownership won the Le Mans 24-hour race and the World Sports Car Championship, and provided James Bond with his most famous transport: the ejector-seat equipped DB5 that won acclaim in Goldfinger. Though the DB era ended when Brown sold the company in 1972, its influence continued to be felt. James Bond's most recent car, the specially-made DB10, and Aston Martin has just launched its most complete car ever, the DB11. 'DB' means as much to Aston Martin now as ever.
