Aston Martin’s Centenary Year

January 16, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

Aston Martin celebrates its centenary year in 2013, having first been officially incorporated by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford on January 15th, 1913. A series of celebrations have been planned by the company which include displaying a 1921 A3 prototype Aston Martin alongside the very latest Aston Martin car – the Vanquish – in Chelsea, London.

The World’s Most Iconic Cars

Despite Aston Martin’s exalted history, the brand really only passed into popular imagination when they became the car of choice for Britain’s hottest secret agent export – James Bond. And Aston Martin cars have since become a favourite export in their own right, as the company now exports up to 75% of its annual production.

Centenary week itself will take place from the 15th to the 21st of July, and there will be opportunities for guests to enjoy Aston Martin driving experiences, hospitality and factory tours.
