The pre-eminent position of the British Motor Industry in the field of high performance cars is due mainly to the unceasing efforts of the smaller manufacturers who, often working with limited financial resources, have made a contribution to British prestige in motor racing out of all proportion to their size.
High amongst this exclusive band is Aston Martin who have, proudly and successfully, carried the racing green of Great Britain since the company started operations in a small garage in Kensington in 1913.
In these pages you will find the engineering romance of Aston Martin from those early days right up until 1957; a story in which the keynote is enthusiasm, and a burning ambition to build the best, and to test this belief the hard way-on the racing circuits of the world. From small beginnings the marque has grown in size and stature until today it must rank as one of the world's greatest sports cars.
Whether you own an Aston Martin, or merely dream of doing so, this book will be compulsory reading for all who love fine sports cars-and the greatest sport of all-motor racing.
