Aston Martin to Celebrate its Centenary with Special Year-long Events

On 15 January 1913, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford founded a new automotive venture that was later renamed as Aston Martin.

Exactly one hundred years later in the evening of 15 January the Aston Martin Heritage Trust Walter Hayes Memorial Lecture will take place in central London with the oldest surviving Aston Martin, the A3 and new Vanquish.

Gust star, actor Sir John Standing as Lionel Martin, will tell the story of his early days and his experience of making the first Aston Martin in Lionel Martin’s own words.

To mark its first century in business, Aston Martin has created also a special centenary logo, which is derived from the nautilus shell, one of the most perfectly proportioned and mathematically precise objects found in nature.

For full details about different events and activities take a look at the press release below.
