ASTON 17

Issue 17 of 'ASTON', the award-winning publication of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust.

ASTON 17 was published in December 2015.

Another couple of centenaries were celebrated in 2015. It was 100 years since the registration of the first true Aston Martin, 'Coal Scuttle' AND 200 years since the founding of Singleton Birch, the company that provided Lionel Martin with the wherewithal to realise his dream of building a light car like no other.
