A little about Aston Martin…
The name’s Bond – James Bond. Agent 007, licensed to kill. The secret agent with all the gadgets and glamour. And a car. An Aston Martin. For all those die-hard 007 fans out there, this is the car of cars, the one that the greatest spy of them all drives.
But you don’t have to like James Bond to like Aston Martins. Let’s face it: the car was around long before Ian Fleming even started writing his best-selling novels. The Aston Martin car company (slogan: “Power, beauty, soul”) was first founded in 1913 by two Englishmen, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. Lionel Martin was a racing driver who raced at the Aston Hill track, and a combination of his surname with the name of the track gave the Aston Martin company its name.
One racing car was produced before the thunderbolt of WWI fell across Europe, putting Aston Martin and so many other budding new automotive companies back. Aston Martin sold its machinery to the famous Sopwith Aviation company – a name with even more legends and associations with derring-do than Aston Martin has. After the war, Aston Martin (which was, by now, bankrupt) was bought out by Lady Charnwood. After a few more setbacks, the Aston Martin moved its headquarters to Feltham and turned its attention to the motor racing world, where it achieved some success at Le Mans. Then World War II began, and the Aston Martin once again poured its engineering efforts into producing aeroplanes.
The company was got back onto rather shaky feet after the war by Sir David Brown, who also owned the Lagonda marquee and merged the two companies into Aston Martin Lagonda. By the 1980s –thanks to a few James Bond movies – Aston Martin was producing the world’s fastest 4-seater production car. This model sold very successfully in the oil-rich Middle East, being popular in Oman, Qatar and Kuwait. It was in 1986 with the film The Living Daylights that Aston Martin had its relationship with James Bond well and truly cemented – the chairman of Aston Martin, Victor Gauntlett, lent his own Aston Martin Vantage for use in the film and was offered a minor role (which he regretfully declined).
A variety of Aston Martin models have appeared in the classic spy thrillers. If you want to know which appeared in your particular favourite film and own it, you may need to know which is which before you head to the nearest dealers. A specialist Aston Martin dealer might know which model appeared in which film, but your average car dealers may not. And you will not find an Aston Martin with all the James Bond extras at any dealers at all.
The Aston Martin DBIII appeared in both the book Goldfinger but it was the DB5 that made it onto the silver screen in both Goldfinger and Thunderball, then most recently in Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies. An Aston Martin DBS puts in a cameo appearance in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Some films flirted with Lotus and BMW, but an Aston Martin V8 Volante and a Vantage appear in The Living Daylights. The Aston Martin Vanquish appears in Die Another Day. After winning it big in Casino Royale, 007 is seen in an Aston Martin DB5 as his personal wheels, alongside the company car, which is an Aston Martin DBS.
James Bond is popular internationally and so is the Aston Martin brand. Aston Martin has a following within Australia, and a specialist importer/dealer and supplier of Aston Martin parts can be found in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. Aston Martin enthusiasts in all states of Australia can find a branch of the Aston Martin Owners’ club, where news, information and advice can be shared. You may never rule the shadowy world of espionage and have luscious members of the opposite sex with sexy names throwing themselves at you, but by owning an Aston Martin, you can have some of the 007 dream.

I have been umming and arring for the past 6 months over cars and getting my head around a few factors. I spoke to Frank this afternoon (Mon 5th Nov) and all I can say is that in 10minutes he has made more sense to me than anyone else in 3 months. I found him to be very knowledgeable, honest, upfront and has given me some excellent and needed advice. Thank you again to Frank for his words of wisdom and he didn’t burst my bubble..
Thanks Rebecca. I’m very happy with the car and I can’t thank everyone at Private Fleet enough. I couldn’t believe that buying a brand new car could be so easy and efficient. Don’t worry, I have already began spreading the word about your services. Thanks again.
Please accept this as a formal thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I have been most impressed and grateful for your professional, friendly and patient assistance. The whole process has made buying a new car a pleasure rather than an onerous and irksome duty. I love my car!! Absolutely stunning to drive - took my husband out for lunch at Brooklyn to celebrate! Really thrilled. I shall not hesitate to recommend you in the future.
I am writing to thank you and your company for the wonderful service you have given me. On the sale of my vehicle and also buying my new Honda which is just great. Both cars were delivered and picked up on time. Thank you again.
Thank you for your assistance the car is fantastic the deal you were able to negotiate for us was great. Let’s hope we can send some additional business your way as we haven’t stopped telling people about the great deal, how easy everything was, the service the whole experience was ‘as smooth as silk’. In the end we saved around $1,800.00. Once again many thanks for your help.
I wish to commend a member of your staff that recently helped us purchase a new vehicle. Having rung various companies/garages trying to locate a particular vehicle that we wanted, we found that most companies did not even have the courtesy to call us back. We were fortunate enough to speak with Paul, who was extremely efficient right from the start. He explained what was involved in purchasing the car and also made several calls to locate a car for us almost immediately. We took delivery of our car yesterday and would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to our friends/relatives. Thank you once again for the excellent service.
I have recently purchased a brand new Volkswagen Beetle through Lenny Lenehan and I wanted you to know how lucky I think you are to have such a professional account service person. I have worked in marketing internationally for over 15 years and therefore have very high expectations as a customer and a very low appreciation of what Australia perceives as an accepted standard of level of service. However, Lenny’s competence and behaviours are those I would consider world class and I wanted you to know that he is definitely an asset to your company and I will be recommending Lenny to as many of my friends and colleagues as I can. If Lenny is the standard you base your company’s bench mark at, then I am confident Private Fleet must be one of this country’s most successful service company.
I write to thank you for making the purchase of my new WRX a hassle free and enjoyable experience. I could not believe I was behind the wheel within 2 weeks of the order. As promised, the car was beautifully presented and with a full tank. The money I saved by using Private Fleet will enable me to purchase a few luxuries. I also look forward to utilising the additional benefits of being a Private Fleet member. I will be highly recommending Private Fleet to all my family/friends/colleagues.
After writing an enquiry form I received a phone call from Lenny within 24 hours. He took all my details and was very polite and patient with my lack of car knowledge. He told me he would have an offer by midday the next day. I received a phone call from Lenny at 10:30 am to inform me of the offer. Every communication I have had with Lenny has been efficient and any requests I have had, have been answered promptly and kindly. I love this website. It has taken all the stress of buying a new car out of the equation and makes it a pleasurable experience. I will definately be recommending this service to everyone I know. Good on you all for having such a great and workable idea. And good on you all for employing such great people.
I wanted to thank you and your company for the great results I received via my new car. I appreciate your efforts (Anton and Catherine included), and am very happy with my car. I have had to call Russell in Canberra Toyota as I had a couple of queries with my car and he was always very helpful and happy to hear from me.I would recommend Private Fleet to others as I have done already. Thanking you...
