A concise and practical overview of the 200 models that made the history of the Aston Martin brand, from 1913 to 2000.

In 180 pages, with more than 600 photos and documents, author Hubert Baradat identifies 4 key periods:

  • The beginnings, from 1913 to 1920, and Robert Bamford's Coal Scuttle, Side Valve and Razor Blade models under the direction of Lionel Martin.
  • The financial difficulties of the pre-war period (1925-1940) and the development of the 1st and 2nd series, with the International, Le Mans, Ulster and Speed models.
  • The rebirth and fame of Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd from 1947 to 1972 thanks to David Brown and the DB2, DB5, DB6 and DBS models and the success of the DBR1 in racing, with Frank Feeley, Tadek Mark and John Wyer.
  • Aston Martin avoided bankruptcy, thanks to a series of ventures led by William Willson, Peter Sprague, George Minden and Victor Gauntlett, the V8, Vantage and Virage models of the 1970s and 1980s, and its acquisition (1991) by the Ford group.
