Aston Martin has been awarded the coolest brand winning both the automobiles/cars brand class and the overall coolest brand title, beating the likes of Apple and Rolex in the annual Coolbrands Awards.
How did Aston Martin get its Name?
Aston Martin have been building bespoke sports cars and coupes since the company was formed by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin in 1913.
The company’s very first car was a one off competition machine using a 1400cc four cylinder Coventry-Simplex engine grafted into a a 1908 Grand Prix Des Voiturettes Isota Fraschini Chassis.
The name of the car – Aston Martin – was evolved from wealthy Kensingtonian Martin’s earlier successful jaunts at the Aston Clinton hill climb event in Buckinghamshire, in his 10hp Singer.
The name has now gone on to be the cooolest on the planet!
