Aston Martin Is a car-company that creates stylish, slim looking cars. The first car they released was in 1921 and was Aston Martin's Standard Sports.The brand has starred many times on Top Gear
Jeremy, James and Richard are all Aston fans and both the men and the cars have taken part in unusual challenges together. Richard, in a Vantage, raced a man on rollerblades; James drove an N24 around Europe on a journey to find the world's best road (despite drowning in his own sweat and suffering from a sore bottom); and Jeremy raced a DB9 down to Monte Carlo.
Top Gear has demonstrated why these thoroughbred supercars are as well-known as they are and will hopefully continue to do so for as long as possible.
