The name’s Martin…Aston Martin. Puns aside, the British manufacturer has received its identity for featuring in 12 of the iconic James Bond films – the first of which was the DB5 grand tourer Goldfinger in 1964.

Aston Martin’s history began way before Bond, and it has always been at the forefront of creating cars which are nothing short of true automobile artwork – supercars in their own right.
It might surprise you that Aston Martin used to source its twin-turbocharged V8 engines from Mercedes, which were based on the German manufacturer’s sporty AMG design. The silver lining is that the replacement engine – a V12 TouchTronic automatic – has unfathomable power in comparison. To give you an idea, it has a top speed of 200mph, 600bhp and reaches 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds.
You can already see this development happening with the current Aston Martin range, with the star-studded DB11 adopting this powerhouse of an engine as standard.
There’s plenty to get excited about as a petrolhead when looking at Aston Martin. The most recent development happened in 2015, when the company announced – almost out of the blue – that it would embark on a ‘Second Century Plan’ to make seven new core models in as many years. It’s on track to achieve full EV capability on its existing range of cars, too. If this should happen, Aston Martin will be on the level set by the likes of the Tesla Model S for zero emission cars with premium sports performance.
