Aston Martin is not only one of the best-known British luxury brands, but is also firmly anchored in pop culture with the DB5 and its successors as James Bond vehicles
It came as no surprise to real enthusiasts that the paths of the traditional British brand and the multi-award-winning automobile photographer would eventually cross. Both share a deep passion for exclusive sports cars and a keen sense of aesthetics.
Aston Martin's rapid success story began almost exactly 110 years ago when it was founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The brand experienced its peak from 1947 under David Brown, whose initials can be found in the legendary models for a reason. Closely linked to racing, the company still pursues the goal of creating roadworthy racing cars. Aston Martin's history on the racetracks is at least as exciting as the company's history. It ranges from the legendary victory at the Aston Hill Climb in 1914 to the success at Le Mans in 1959 and entry into Formula 1 from 2021. Associated with names such as Stirling Moss and Sebastian Vettel.
But Aston Martin is not only in the fast lane when it comes to high technical performance. Thanks to their elegant design and luxurious comfort, the automobiles literally ooze with British understatement. No wonder then that none other than James Bond has relied on Aston Martin for his company car in Goldfinger since 1964.
René Staud, who has already had models of all relevant (luxury) brands in front of his lens, has a similar radiance in the field of automotive photography. Equipped with his own lighting system, he puts his automobile models in the right light in the truest sense of the word and is a master of staging. Like Aston Martin, René Staud is also responsible for some real classics. teNeues published the bestsellers The Porsche 911 Book, The Jaguar Book, and of course the original edition of The Aston Martin Book.
This high-quality illustrated book, which truly invites you to dream and indulge, shows how well the two harmonize. Inspiring impressions and concise texts make it possible to immerse yourself in the exciting Aston Martin cosmos and to discover many unknown stories. In his foreword, the author and automotive (design) expert Paolo Tumminelli puts it in a nutshell: “No car manufacturer has gone down more often. No other has been resurrected every time. Is that why the logo has the wings of the phoenix?”
Refueled with expanded texts and new stunning photographs of both vintage and current models, The Aston Martin Book Revised Edition now represents a completely revised and perfected version of its predecessor.
