Rare and historic Aston Martin known as ‘Cloverleaf’ runs up Aston Hill to celebrate the sports car’s 95th anniversary

Description

It was 95 years ago that the car which came to be known as ‘Cloverleaf’, XR 1981, lined up at the bottom of Aston Hill. One of just eight customer cars built in late 1923, this very early Aston Martin was competing against two Bugattis and two other Aston Martins – one of which had been entered by the company’s founder, Lionel Martin, who won the trophy on the day.

    British builder of exotic and luxurious sports cars, Aston Martin’s current model range includes six different vehicles, most with convertible ‘Volante’ versions. The V8 Vantage is the brand’s entry-level volume model and has just been redesigned for 2018. New additions include the DB-11 high-end sports car, Vanquish Zagato, and Valkyrie hypercar. On the horizon is a new venture for the luxury sports brand: a compact crossover called the DBX. Best known for being the ride of choice for James Bond, the name Aston Martin is derived from one of the automaker’s founder, Lionel Martin and the Aston Hill speed hillclimb. Founded in 1913, like many other high end automakers it’s had a tumultuous history until 1994 when Ford took over ownership and since then has thrived in the luxury car market.
