Seriously this is one thing that I didn't like in The Selection
2008 The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400 is a wonderful car. It is seen by car experts as an even more loaded version of the former V8 Vantage released by Aston Martin. The car has even more power and is available as both coupe and roadster. Aston Martins are very popular and are loved for both their engines and their stylish appearance. Vantage N400 is a special edition that is as beautiful as it is powerful.
Aston Martin's story
Aston Martin is a British vehicle manufacturer galloped in Gaydon, Warwickshire, England. It was started by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin in 1913. The two men had collaborated to sell cars made by Singer in 1912. The two men decided to create their own cars and named their model Aston Martin after Martin's love for the hill climb races at Aston Hill (located near Aston Clinton). The first Aston Martin ever produced was a four-cylinder Coventry simplex engine that was on the chassis of an 1908 Isotta Fraschini. The car was made before they managed to acquire manufacturing facilities in Kensington at Henniker Place (it happened in 1915). Unfortunately, the mass production of their cars could not begin as soon as the partner had hoped for the outbreak of the First World War, which was when Martin joined the Royal Army Service Corps and sold all his machines to Sopwith Aviation Company.
The company was rebuilt and revived after the war ended when the company received funding from Greek Louis Zborowski. Bramford left the company in 1920 but not until they had designed a new car.
During the car's history, Aston Martins has been made to compete in the French Grand Prix (1922); They have put world endurance and speed records at Brooklands. The company has failed twice, once in 1924 and 1925 with a factory shutdown that took place in 1926. The company was finally bought by some very wealthy investors, Lady Charnwood among them, and it was renamed to Aston Martin Motors. The company's headquarters were moved to Feltham and in 1929 the Aston Martin International race car was a great success.
In 2007, the company was purchased by David Richards, the Prodrive chairman. It is still owned by Ford (a development that took place in 1994). The company has also recently opened retailers in Europe and China. Now the company has dealers in 28 countries.
