When Was the First Aston Martin Car Made?

The first Aston Martin was built in 1915, less than one year after the company name was birthed in 1914. The company was founded in 1913 as Bamford & Martin LTD by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin.

The company closed in 1925 due to financial problems but was saved by a group of investors in 1926 and formed Aston Martin Motors LTD. Road car production maintained a steady increase in the 1930s, and 140 cars were built in 1937, which was the highest pre-war number. The Aston Martin Atom was produced in 1939 using a space-frame chassis and independent suspension.
