This is one of the first cars of the serie 1, that begins in 1936 with the introduction of the new 1.5-liter (see below). Bamford has leaved the company long ago and Martin probably have to accept a new corporate management. He has placed too much emphasis on the construction and development of racing cars. The company are facing, in spite of years with money subsidies from outside, bankruptcy. It is saved by the merger of the former sponsors. The brothers Bertelli bring from their own automotive production a newly constructed engine and the manufacturing facility for the bodywork. Hitherto the company Aston Martin made only driving gears and underbody. Now one can practically offer even the entire car.
