Description

** Insurance is included in the price. Minimum age to rent this car is 30. Please read the Guidelines for further info ** Forever linked with fictional secret agent James Bond (in the books he actually drove a pre-war Bentley), the history of Aston Martin is a proper roller coaster! Founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin when he built a car to race at the Aston hillclimb in Buckinghamshire, the company has lurched from crisis to crisis whilst managing to produce breathtakingly beautiful and desirable cars. In the years between 1920 and 1925 Aston Martin failed 4 times, setting the tone for an eventful financial life. Before the onset of the second world war in 1939 Aston failed twice more, and spent the war years making aircraft parts. Aston’s most stable period was soon to come, as tractor and gearbox magnate David Brown bought the company in 1947, and it was his money that made the company largely what it is today. He developed the DB series of cars (a DB4 was used by Michael Caine in the Italian Job, and James Bond used a DB5 in Goldfinger) and the DBR racing cars (a DBR1 won the Le Mans 24 hours in 1959). The cars were achingly beautiful and prohibitively expensive but Brown still lost money on every car sold! After 25 years ownership losses at the parent David Brown company caused Aston to be sold again, this time to a Birmingham based consortium. In the next 15 years, Aston was sold a further 7 times but in 1982 only sold 30 cars worldwide. Despite having launched the V8 Vantage (self-styled as Britain’s first supercar) with 170mph top speed, and the space-age styled 4-door Lagonda – at the time the most expensive production car in the world – the recession of the early 80’s nearly killed Aston. In 1987, a chance conversation between the then Chairman of Aston Martin, and the head of Ford Europe led to Ford buying a majority share in Aston, and its future was secure. Ford’s money bankrolled development of the DB7 and the car was an instant classic. Blessed with the same drop-dead looks as its DB brethren, Aston made 7,000 of these in a 9 year production run, re-establishing Aston as one of the coolest brands in the universe. This coolness was increased by the 2001 launch of the Vanquish – as driven by James Bond, it was a design statement by Ian Callum that has set the direction of Aston design for at least a decade. Now, 8 years on, it still looks fresh. The Vanquish was the basis for the (slightly) more user friendly DB9 – DB8 was missed out as Aston Martin didn’t want Americans to think it only had 8 cylinders – this was a proper full-fat V12 with 480bhp. Launched in 2004 as a grand tourer rather than sports car, the DB9 quickly became one of the most desirable and easily recognised cars on the planet.

Faqs

  • Am I fully covered on the insurance?

    It is comprehensive insurance but there is an excess of £5,000 meaning that up to £5,000 is your responsibility in the event of an accident.

  • I've got a non-EU driving licence - any issues?

    Hopefully not, but our insurer is unable to provide insurance automatically for non-EU citizens. we need to refer drivers individually to our insurers as our cars fall in to a high-risk category. When making the enquiry if you can give us your name, home address, age, occupation, licence details, driving history and convictions or accidents and if you have a previous track record of driving in the UK or Europe that will allow us to contact them and get approval.

  • What about extra mileage ?

    We charge at £3.00/mile. as you can appreciate these cars are expensive to maintain and the mileage also affects their resale value more than other cars. Please talk to us about this if this will be an issue.

  • Is there a minimum age to rent this car?

    Yes, you must be at least 30 years old.
