Aston Martin was started by Bamford and Martin and after a constant struggle to stay afloat, the company failed in 1925. But the name Aston-Martin was rescued, first by Renwick & Bertelli, and then by Gordon Sutherland in 1933.
These were exciting times for Aston Martin which started with the 2-Litre, which evolved into the stylish DB2, and the famous Italian-designed DB4. Next came the super-car era and the DB5, followed by the DB6.
This title chronicles the various upheavals that occurred in the company between the years 1972, when Sir David Brown sold the company, its near certain death in 1974, and its revival by the Sprague-Minden-Curtis-Flather consortium.
