Marky Of Sports Cars Photos
The legendar mark of British sports cars has finally become available to Russian motorists: the first official salon Aston Martin opened in Moscow last week. One of the world ' s most exclusive auto-producers -- in its 103-year history, the firm has produced just over 70,000 cars, each of which is hand-held, to Russia late (for comparison: Aston Martin has 17 dealers in China), but by mythology, few of the competitors can compare with Agent 007.
Company destined to be one of the leading producers of lux athletes in the worldwas founded in 1912 in London as a modest marketing and maintenance centre for the vanished brand Singer, GWK and Calthorpe. The founders, engineers and enthusiasts of Lyonel Martin and Robert Bamford, first named the firm as Bamford Martin, but a year later, deciding to start automobile production, renamed it aston Martin, Martin, participated in the amateur rally on the slopes of Aston Hill, near the village of Aston Clinton, in the past.
Bemford and Martin ' s first self-employment under Aston Martin ' s brand became an unsatisfactory race car on the Isotta-Fraschini chassis of 1908, known as Coal Scuttle, due to the characteristic shape of the bonnet, which covered the Coventry-Simplex four-cylinder engine. The world war that began marked the first pause in Aston Martin's history, both founders have gone by volunteer officers, Bamford, to the service of the Army of His Majesty, Martin, to the Admiralty. As a matter of fact, at that point only the workshop had been transferred to Sopwith manufacturers.
