Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.
The company name is derived from the name of one of the company's founders, Lionel Martin, and from the Aston Hill speed hillclimb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire.It also designs and engineers cars which are manufactured by Magna Steyr in Austria.
There have been a number of Aston Martin logos since the company started up in 1916. The first from 1920 was an amalgamation of the letters A and M. The next was inroduced in 1932 and the two wings were borrowed from the Bentley Logo signifying speed. The third was an evolution of the last and the design was gradually improved to keep up with modern tastes. It was modernised again to include the name "David Brown" in 1947 when he took over the company, lending his initials to several landmark vehicles in the AM range.
