Aston Martin er grundlagt i 1913 af Lionel Martin og Robert Bamford, som begge havde solgt biler af mærket Singer. De besluttede at lave deres egne biler til motorsport, og byggede den første bil, som stod klar i 1915. Navnet Aston Martin stammer fra både Lionel Martin og det sted han kørte race, men Lionel Martin forlod firmaet i 1925, som skiftede navn til Aston Martin Motors. Firmaet fortsatte med at lave biler til motorsport gennem 1930'erne. Efter 2. Verdenskrig blev mærket overtaget af David Brown Ltd, heraf modelnavnet DB. Der var løbende problemer med økonomien, indtil Ford Motor Co. overtog Aston Martin i 1986. Ford solgte i 2007 hovedparten af sine aktier i Aston Martin, som i dag ejes af et selskab med David Richards fra Prodrive, som den mest kendte i ejerkredsen. Aston Martin har hovedkontor i Caydon, Warwick, England.

Aston Martin Racing has achieved double podium success at the 6 Hours of Nürburgring, taking victory in the GTE Am class and 3rd in GTE Pro.
With conditions remaining dry throughout the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), the trio of Paul Dalla Lana (C), Pedro Lamy (P) and Mathias Lauda (A) drove a faultless race to bring their V8 Vantage GTE home in 1st.
In GTE Pro, the team enjoyed a strong points haul for its #95 V8 Vantage GTE entry with 3rd place. Despite Nicki Thiim (DN) and Marco Sørensen (DN) displaying a strong performance, a late full course yellow soon after their final pitstop allowed others to benefit from the slower track, dropping the crew to 3rd by the finish.

Aston Martin Racing’s drivers have taken to the Le Mans circuit in something a little more tail happy, after trading in their 24 Hours of Le Mans V8 Vantage GTE challengers.
Ahead of the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the team’s factory drivers took to the track in uniquely modified Razor Crazy Carts. Despite pushing the carts to their limits, the trio managed to avoid a visit to the gravel traps, while discovering a new way to take on the Dunlop Bridge complex....
