History

Founded in 1913, Aston Martin made a number of low volume racing cars before the war broke out. After the war, the company graduated from producing racing-oriented sports cars such as the DB2 to grand touring cars such as the DB4 and the famous DB5.
Ford took a share holding in Aston Martin in 1987 and invested in it to ramp up production. The marque received record commercial success with DB7, Vanquish, and DB9 grand tourers.
During restructuring in 2007, private investors took over the company. Aston Martin entered a partnership with Daimler AG in 2013 and started using Mercedes-Benz electronics and engines in its new models. The company went publish in 2018.

Vehicle Lineup

Aston Martin's current vehicle lineup comprises two grand tourers (DB11 and DBS Superleggera), one sports car (Vantage), a sedan (Rapide AMR), and one crossover (DBX).
