Aston Martin Lagonda Limited is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. It was founded in 1918 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.
The Aston Martin Company has had quite a few homes over the years. There are also a small number of other facilities that have been associated with certain aspects of the company other than direct production. Below are a list of factories and their role in the history of the marque. I must emphasise, that the current facilities are not generally open to the public, although on rare occasions, there can be open days for members of the Aston Martin Owners Club. The photographs on these pages have been taken with permission during open days and official visits.
The Aston Martin logo has undergone various modification throughout the years. Nonetheless, it is widely regarded as one of the most iconic and widely recognized car logos ever created. The earliest known Aston Martin logo was introduced in 1921 and consisted of a simple merging of the letters &ldquo A&rdquo and &ldquo M&rdquo in black color, inside a black double-line circle. The winged design was first adapted in 1927, with the company&rsquo s name placed on a pair of white wings. It has since been overhauled and simplified, keeping in line with the contemporary design aesthetics. A wing is a traditional symbol of speed, freedom, dreams and exploring boundaries.
