For a century now the Aston Martin name has been synonymous with performance, style and sophistication. Perhaps more than any other luxury car it possesses a mystique and charisma that have established it as a cultural icon and the pinnacle of automotive ingenuity. Yet the brand's survival has not always been assured. That Aston Martins are still being produced today is testament to the power of the name and what it represents to car lovers worldwide.

In Aston Martin: Power, Beauty and Soul, author David Dowsey explores the colourful history of Aston Martin, from its humble beginnings in a London garage in 1913, to its takeover by the Ford Motor Company in 1987 and sale in 2007. Many of those intimately involved at the various stages of the car's history offer fascinating insights into the development of the Aston Martin and amusing behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

With lush full-colour photography and detailed illustrations, comprehensive specifications of every model from the early DB right up to the V8 Vantage Roadster, and production statistics and racing results, Aston Martin: Power, Beauty and Soul is an indispensable reference for motor enthusiasts and a book that truly does justice to the Aston Martin name.

Book Features:

  • Comprehensive 352-page history with beautiful colour photography and detailed illustrations
  • Includes thorough specification information for each model
  • The year 2013 marked a significant milestone for Aston Martin - it celebrated their 100th Anniversary and the start of their second century in automotive design
400 colour photographs

About the Author

A graduate of Melbourne University, motoring journalist David Dowsey initially came from a musical background. He has had a genuine and passionate interest in Aston Martins for many years after first coming into contact with the marque through the famous Corgi toys. His profession allows him to sample the latest and greatest motoring products, and as a long-time owner of an Aston Martin he is well-placed to present this comprehensive study of a vital period in the brand's history.
