The Origin of The Name
The company name was derived from the fact that Lionel Martin raced at the Aston Clinton hill climb in Aston Clinton village in Buckinghamshire, England
between Tring and Aylesbury. from 1904 to 1925, Aston hill, part of the Lord Rothschild's Estate, was a renowned motoring venue. Lionel Martin made his first ascent of this hill in a tuned Singer Car on 4th, April,
1914. Shortly afterwards, on the 16th. May, at the Herts County Automobile & Aero Club meeting he was so successful, that the sporting light car first registered in his name in March 1915, was called an
"ASTON-MARTIN". it was the start of a legend in the history of the automobile.
