2023 marks 110 years since founders Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford officially formed the partnership that went on to create the first Aston Martin car, igniting more than a century of ultra-luxury high performance sports cars, cutting-edge British innovation, and high-octane racing success.

Spanning 11 decades, among the 110 sportscars impressing crowds were the A3, Aston Martin’s oldest surviving car dating back over a century, DB3S, driven by many of the greatest British drivers of the 1950s including Sir Stirling Moss, the unmistakable DB5, synonymous with James Bond, the ultimate hypercar, Aston Martin Valkyrie and the fastest SUV in the world, DBX707, as well as its latest production model, the world’s first Super Tourer, DB12.

Keeping a close eye on proceedings, the official Aston Martin Vantage FIA Safety Car and DBX707 Medical Car were also present on the grid, demonstrating the ever-increasing road and track relevance of Aston Martin’s high-performance products
