The history of Aston Martin begins in 1913 when Lionel Martin -an avid racer on the "Aston Clinton Hillclimb"- tried to create his own car. At the workshop on Abingdon Road in Kensignton, the first registered car was built in 1915.When choosing the name of the car, they came up with the name "Aston Martin" - a combination of Aston Hills and the surname of co-founder Lionel Martin.The name "Vantage" is very important to Aston Martin. In the 60s, 70s and 80s, it was the name of the extra strong and fast variant of the DB4 and the V8. We also encountered the name with the forerunner of the "Vanquish": the "Project Vantage Concept". In 2005, the new "Vantage V8" was launched, a coupé with a six-speed manual transmission. The Roadster was available from 2007. The 4.3 V8 engine was from Jaguar. Unlike the Jaguar engines, this engine was completely modified and assembled by hand.The car was to be seen as a direct competitor to the Porsche 911 and therefore offered identical performance, although the "V8 Vantage" was much more luxurious and exclusive and, above all, sounded much better of course!
