Why Aston Martin is my favorite car company
Aston martin has overtime become my favorite car company and I am going to reveal why
First an overview of Aston Martin
Aston Martin was founded in London in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford and since then have gone on to make some of the most successful race cars and most gorgeous sports cars the world has ever dreamt of. It all started when the two married a four cylinder engine to a car 1908 Isotta Fraschini(an early Italian car company) that they named Aston Martin. They first started racing in 1922 in the French Grand Prix. Later in the year they had broke ten world racing records. In the 50s the DBR1 driven by the legend texan caroll Shelby won the 1959 24 hours of Le mans. And today they are producing ludicrous racing cars that aren't even street legal and those that are while also making luxury sports cars.
What Aston Martin is all about
Aston Martin have always been about the art of enhancing performance with luxury without making scarifies to handling and power. With Aston Martin you may not be faster than a ferrari, mclaren or even Mercedes with their Amg gt but you will have a car more special and unique. In fact the Mercedes Amg gt 4 door has a 0-60mph time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 195 miles per hour while the new vantage has a slightly slower 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 195 miles per hour. But the way I see the Vantage is the much more prettier car. They way to sum it up is Aston Martin is about uniqueness, exclusivity, beauty, rarity and luxury all in one.

How ludicrous their racing cars are
Aston Martin has been developing lots of new cars lately, most of which being focused around the racetrack. They have come up with the famous Vulcan. A 820 horsepower track toy that revs a 7.0L v12 to over 7,700 Rpm and that produces 575 lb ft of torque. One of the latest is the Valkyrie. Its aero design is from outer space and its function is only to used for the racetrack. it has a brand new 6.5L v12 that produces 1000 horsepower at 10,500rpm!! and makes 546 lb ft of torque at 7000rpm. Redline is at a unbelieveable 11,100rpm!!! 0-60 in under 3 seconds and a top speed not yet specified but will be over 200 miles per hour!
Just their beauty
Aston Martin has designed and developed some of the most gorgeous cars in the world. Everything from the DBR1 to DB5. The Vanquish, vantage, dbs supperlegerra, DBS and Zagato designed Aston Martins. They all have smooth body lines and curves that inspire all who lay eyes on them. And thats what Aston Martin is truly all about. They are all about how they excite those who love them, those who see them and those who drive them. They are focused on the beauty of designing cars!
