Inside this issue of  Aston Martin in the David Brown era:

This new publication includes stories from Octane and Vantage in its 220 pages. Here, 75 years since David Brown bought the company, you’ll find the unique history, people and all the milestones of Britain’s favourite dynasty
of motoring greats – as well as the cars that made the marque.

Highlights include…

  • Aston Martin DB3S – Driving DB3S/5, which the likes of Stirling Moss one raced – and visiting Aston Martin Works to see how the car was restored.
  • Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato – ‘2 VEV’, the most famous of all DB4 GT Zagatos, rumbles around Goodwood Circuit – scene of its triumphs in the past.
  • Aston Martin DBR1 – On track in DBR1/4, the car that finished second at Le Mans in 1959 – and recounting the memories of the men who raced the winning car.
  • Aston Martin DB5 – For the first time, an original James Bond DB5 returns to the Furka Pass in Switzerland – where the Goldfinger chase sequence was shot.
