James Bond may be a fictional character, but his effect on Aston Martin is very much real. In the decades since its first appearance, Aston Martin has developed into a global luxury brand that generated more than $1 billion in revenue in 2017. Despite the Hollywood fame and the recent IPO, the company has had its fair share of Financial troubles, going bankrupt seven times in 105 years.
Real-life Aston Martins don’t have ejector seats like in James Bond, but they do take 200 man-hours to make. Cars can spend up to 50 hours at the paint shop as employees perfect the look on each Aston.
