Located in Gaydon, England, the name Aston Martin is derived from the name of one of the company's founders and the Aston Hill speed hillclimb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire. A manufacturer of luxury sports cars, Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The first project to be named Aston Martin was created by Martin fitting a four-cylinder Coventry-Simplex engine to the chassis of a 1908 Isotta-Fraschini. The company has come quite a way since then.
