Repair of Aston Martin

Aston Martin is a legendary British company specializing in the production of ultra-expensive sports supercars. It is a division of the Ford Motor Company’S Corporate Group. It is headquartered in Newport Panell.

The founders of the Aston Martin brand are called Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, who in 1914 in London district of Kensington built a light motor sports car with 1.4-liter Coventry-Simples engine on the chassis of the Italian Isotta Fraschini passenger car. A year earlier, Martin had won the local race on Aston Clinton in a Singer 10, and the new car was named Aston Martin in memory of this event.

At the end of 1919, the second Aston Martin model appeared, and its production began only in January 1920 in a new workshop on London’s Abington Road.

Aston Martin cars were constantly involved in races, thanks to which the company gained sports and technical experience. In 1924, in a race at Monza, Count Louis Zborowski crashed, who provided the company with huge financial assistance, and engineer W.S. Renwick bought the company, which was on the verge of bankruptcy, for 6 thousand pounds. The basis for all subsequent Aston Martin cars until 1936 was a new 1.5-liter engine with an overhead camshaft, which was developed by Renwick and his Italian companion Augustu Cesare Bertelli.

Aston Martin 11.9 HP model was launched in 1926.

Success accompanies the Aston-Martin Ulster model in “24 Hours of Le Mans” races of 1934-1936.

Speed ​​model appears in 1936.

In 1939, the company’s chief engineer, Claude Hill, created the Atom car, which began the history of the “DB” series cars (the abbreviation contained the initials of David Brown). Atom made a furore at the London Motor Show in 1940. But the war made its own adjustments.

In 1947 the company “Aston Martin” was bought out by David Brown and in 1948 the first DB is produced on the basis of “Atom”. The letters “DB” are the initials of David Brown, owner of Aston Martin throughout his history. Lagonda also got into the ownership of David Brown, so their engine went to “Aston Martin”. 15 Aston Martin-Lagonda DB1 cars were produced in total.

In 1950, the DB-2 made its debut with a 2.6 liter 105 hp engine, successfully participating in many competitions for cars of the 3 liter class.

In 1959, Aston Martin introduced the DB4 with an aluminum 6-cylinder 3.7 l engine with two overhead camshafts producing 240 hp, developed by designer Tadek Marek. The updated lightweight coupe body was more elegant and attractive. It was the most successful car in the British Grand Turismo category. The impressive four-seater DBS model could reach speeds of 257 km/h, which put the car on a par with supercars.

In 1959, the DBR3 won the 24-hour race at Le Mans.

One of DB4 variants was the sports-racing Aston Martin DB-4GT with a streamlined body Zagato, which was released in 1960. 19 cars of this version were produced in total; all of them have survived to our time.

In 1963, the release of new DB5 was announced, which differed from its predecessor only by the increased displacement of 282 hp to 4 liters.

Following the Aston Martin DB5 in 1965, the 325-horsepower DB6 was similar in appearance to all its two-seater predecessors, but had a capacity of 4 people. He belonged to the upper class and was able to compete with other prestigious models. At the end of the 60s, more powerful models DBS and DBS Vantagec with a 6-cylinder engine were born on its basis, cars with an aluminum V-8 engine of 5340 cc were later added to this range, developing power from 340 to 450 hp.

1972 saw a new turn in the history of Aston Martin: David Brown sold it to Company Development Ltd., which put an end to the usual designation of “DB” models. During this period, the company struggled to assemble small series of sports cars, which received the designation Vantage for coupes and Volante for convertibles. All of them were offered in the most expensive versions with the former 5.3-liter V8 engines with 340 and 390 hp. The first direct injection systems and American automatic transmissions appeared in it.

Since 1976, one of the world’s most extravagant high-end Aston Martin Lagonda cars with an elongated wedge-shaped hood, under which the already well-known “eight” of 390 hp was hidden, has been produced in small series, along with a Chrysler automatic transmission. This car was not affordable for a common man, but in the Middle East, Lagonda was very popular. For example, one of its owners was the Prince and Princess of Saudi Arabia.

With the coming of the 80s, the financial position of Aston Martin deteriorated further. For 7 years, it was bought out several times by British and American industrial and financial groups, but this did not lead to significant changes in the company’s affairs. Relative stabilization began only in 1987, when the American corporate group Ford Motor Company became the next owner of Aston Martin, which bought 75% of the company’s shares.

In 1988, the new Virage Coupé was added to the mainstream Vantage and Volante models, combining the spirit of previous years such as the DB4 with state-of-the-art design and gorgeous new chassis. Virage offered motorists higher dynamic indicators.

The economic situation of Aston Martin improved in the 90s, in care of Ford. In 1993, the public was presented with a new sporty DB7. This model is one of the best cars of the company. In the 90s, the Virage, Volante and Vantage models were still relevant.

A new brainchild of British designers – Vantage Aston Martin DB7 was shown for the first time in 1999, at the Geneva Motor Show. This is another dream-car from the DB7 model series. The new DB7 Vantage was also designed by Ian Callum.

In 2000, the American auto giant Ford officially introduced the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish model, which, thanks to a new, more powerful engine and the use of lightweight materials, has an amazing driving performance. Vanquish is like not a car at all, but like some kind of boutique on the Champs Elysees. Needless to say, the car is literally crammed with all possible electronics. All information is processed by the on-board computer (which, according to engineers, can execute up to 2 million commands per second), displayed, and the most important is duplicated by voice. All cars were assembled by hand and by individual order.

In 2001, the company announced the release of the four thousandth Aston Martin DB7 model. This is the Vantage coupe, painted in gray-green colour of Galloway Green. Sales of the DB7 set a new record for the company and exceed the total sales of the previous generations of this model – DB4, DB5 and DB6.

The DB9 was first presented at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although it replaced the DB7, Aston Martin did not name the car as the DB8 due to concerns that the name means existence of a V8 engine (DB9 has a V12). It was also reported that Aston Martin believed that the name of “DB8” car would indicate a gradual evolution and distort the idea of ​​the car. Thanks to this model, the company was able to return to racing again after long breaks.

The DB9 is the first model built at Aston Martin’s Gaydon plant in Warwickshire, England. In a 2007 interview, Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez stated that while Aston Martin has traditionally been a more exclusive car manufacturer, he believed Aston Martin needed to be more visible and build more vehicles.

In 2005, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage sports car made its debut. The model range included versions with coupe and roadster bodies. The front-engined car was equipped with a V8 4.3 petrol engine with a capacity of 385-408 hp, and in 2008 the car received a new eight-cylinder engine with a volume of 4.7 liters, developing 426-446 hp.  The gearbox could be mechanical or robotic, it was assigned to the driving rear axle according to the transaxle scheme. In 2009, production of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage began, equipped with a twelve-cylinder engine with a capacity of 517-603 hp. The car was produced in the UK until 2017.

It should be noted, that the elite Aston Martins are still assembled in four small sheds near Newport Pagnell town in central England. This plant never learned what a conveyor or Ford’s division of labor was. At another plant where Aston Martin BD was made, a special brand is put under the hood of each car: the name of the assembler, or, better to say, the author.

engine repair

Restoration and replacement of power unit components is the most technically complex and responsible process of everything that relates to car maintenance. It is almost impossible to do it yourself without special equipment. Therefore, in such a situation, people usually turn to a specialized center.

Partial as well as scheduled or major repairs are possible. The planned one is carried out after the exhaust of the resource of the power unit as a result of the run. Unscheduled due to other reasons - the wear of certain parts faster due to their more limited resource than the power plant as a whole. Maintenance is also necessary, aimed at maintaining the units in order to extend the service life or due to unexpected breakdowns associated with various causes of these phenomena (accidents, low-quality spare parts).
