Aston Martin started production in the years immediately following the First World War and was plagued by financial trouble until tractor magnate David Brown stepped in following the Second World War.
Despite the shaky start Aston Martin built a strong reputation for fast, innovative cars and high quality.
With David Brown behind the wheel the company became Britain’s leading builder of 'grand tourers' but also tasted plenty of success in sports car and endurance racing.
This fascinating film celebrates the first 100 years of Aston Martin history in intimate detail.
Cars range from the Brooklands 200-mile racer of the early 1920s, to today’s glorious V12 Vantage and the Le Mans Vantage GT2 .
