Product Description
 
An extraordinary story of spies, speed and hard-driving genius, by the man who was The Stig.An extraordinary story of spies, speed and hard-driving genius, by the man who was The Stig.
Aston Martin is a story of spies, speed and hard-driving genius: a driver's love letter to one of the world's best-loved machines.

The company's first, wickedly fast models were forged at a time when Ferrari's premises at Maranello was nothing but a ploughed field. This book celebrates a century of innovators who kept the fire burning brightly for over a century, from the visionary pioneers Martin and Bamford to modern-day design guru Adrian Newey; from a glamorous web of pre- and post-war spies and racing drivers, to David Brown and the achingly beautiful DB models beloved of Bonds past and present.

Bestselling author, racer and stunt driver Ben Collins explores the car with the double-o prefix from a unique perspective behind the wheel, carving through country lanes in his father's V8 Vantage, driving Aston Martins in four James Bond movies and competing against them in the legendary Le Mans 24-hour race.

Ultimately, this is a very British success story: of a triumph of engineering that has burned brightly from the Roaring 20s to the 2020s, and an iconic car that never says die.
