Aston Martin, officially called Aston Martin Lagonda Limited, is a famous British car manufacturer which specializes in luxury sports cars and grand touring cars. It was established by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in 1913. But the name ‘Aston Martin’ was registered a year later after Lionel Martin had successfully raced a special car at Aston Hill Climb.
Aston Martin debuted on the international scene with two cars competing in prestigious French Grand Prix in 1922. Since then the marque secured its positions providing a wide range of top-tier sports cars. The business has sky-rocketed in 1947 when an English industrialist Sir David Brown acquired Aston Martin. In 1950-s the company began to produce elite touring cars and the brand won hearts of millions of people when DB5 model appeared on screens in James Bond sequel ‘Goldfinger’.
The current version of the Aston Martin logo contains a green rectangle on top of the white wings, sporting the company’s name in uppercase characters.
The Aston Martin logo incorporates the Optima typeface, a humanist sans-serif font created by German typeface designer Hermann Zapf.
