The Aston Martin is classed as a luxury grand tourer which was produced by the British automobile manufacturing company Aston Martin Lagonda Limited.

This car was the replacement for the DB4 and the DB series takes its name after David Brown who headed Aston Martin from 1947 to 1972.

This car was designed by Italian designers Carrozzeria touring Superleggra. They were well designed and were extremely classy.
