Luxury grand touring cars was tied up with the company in the 1950s and the 1960s and was then followed with the use of a DB5 model by the famous movie character James Bond in Goldfinger, a film premiered in 1964.
The financial history of Aston Martin has been up and down during its operation. The company suffered bankruptcy in the 1970s, but has also seen major improvements and stability. These golden years happened when the company was owned by David Brown and during the ownership of the Ford Motor Company from 1994 to 2007.
Investors being led by David Richards bought 92% of the whole company in the amount of £479 million in March 2007, leaving Ford with only a £40 million share. By then, the chairman of Aston Martin was David Richards.
