On February 27, 2015, the official grand opening of the Baku showroom of the world famous legendary British automobile brand "Aston Martin" took place in the center of the capital of Azerbaijan. The history of "Aston Martin" begins with Lionel Martin and his incredible passion for the sport that was gaining popularity in 1913 - auto racing. He turns his passion for racing cars into business and partners with Robert Bamford to sell the first Singer cars. Together they adapt the cars to the serious tasks of that time - climbing the steep sections of the mountain. The Martin-Bamford couple then start their own car production, which required a name. Lionel raced regularly on Aston Hill, which is the origin of Martin and Bamford's cars.
