The Aston Martin name originates from the combination of founder Lionel Martin’s surname and the famous Aston Hill speed hillclimb races. It is a name that still invigorates the automobile market with continuously stunning designs. Beginning in 1913, founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford joined in business together. Several years down the line Bamford left the company, but Martin struggled along finding ways to keep the company going. Often faced with financial troubles, the company changed ownership fairly often. Fortunately, today, the Aston Martin name flourishes, creating beautiful automobiles like the DBR1 #5. Take this opportunity to admire these remarkable machines with a scale diecast model of your own!
