Aston Martin DB11 Hire versus ownership
Most of the business we do at PB Supercar Hire with our Aston Martin DB11 hire car is with short term rentals ranging from 1-7 days usually for use for wedding car hire, which is great for a one off hire experience. However recently we have seen an increasing amount of enquiries and hires for longer periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 months on our Aston Martin DB11. PB Supercar Hire offer great long term supercar hire deals and short term leases on our prestige car hire solutions. If you are looking for this type of sports car hire you will usually be accustomed to the pitfalls and problems with ownership, especially in London. By hiring our Aston Martin DB11 for a longer period you will relieve yourself of the burdens of maintenance, insurance, tax, mot, tyres, finance costs and the all important depreciation. Just because you can afford an Aston Martin DB11 does not mean you have the money to loose thousands when it comes time to sell.
We have carefully worked out that hiring our Aston Martin DB11 for a period of up to 12 months will work out financially better than buying one for the same period. If however you intend to keep the supercar longer than 12 months it is better sense to buy or lease one on a traditional 36 month deal.
Quite often when you buy an Aston Martin DB11 it sits in your garage unused for days or weeks at a time, costing money and depreciating. PB Supercar Hire has seen a large rise in this type of luxury car hire customer over the past few years, who have now chosen to sell their own supercar and regularly choose our Aston Martin hire options as and when they need a car often for a few weeks at a time."
James Bond and the Aston Martin DB11 Hire Car
Aston Martin have long been associated with the world's most popular spy, from the much loved Aston Martin DB5 to the Aston Martin Vanquish. All of the cars that have been used by James Bond throughout the series - and there have been 12 films that have used Aston Martin's - have been available for public purchase, albeit without the gadgets and ejector seats.
The difference with Bond's ride in Spectre though is that it isn't available for purchase but was used to form the basis and prototype for the DB11. The DB10 was been made by Aston Martin solely for use by Daniel Craig's Bond in Spectre. 10 models of the Aston Martin DB10 had been made and all of the were used for shooting
The DB10 showcases Aston Martin's vision for their future, with a new sleek look that will translate to all of it's 2016 production cars starting with the DB11 and al new Vantage. Where better to unveil a new style than by letting James Bond do it?
The new style Aston Martin DB11 hire car we have features sharper creases with a shorter rear, although they have kept the front grille which is synonymous with Aston Martin even though it is lower and wider than previous models.
The DB10 and DB11 makes the most of a lightweight aluminium architecture that goes hand in hand with the new batch of Mercedes AMG engines that the new models will be built with.
A Difficult Start for the Aston Martin DB11 Rental Car
Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford under the name Bamford & Martin with the intention of making a vehicle that Martin could race at Aston Hill, which he had been doing previously. The first car to carry the Aston Martin name was a modified Isotta-Fraschini chassis to which Martin fitted a four-cylinder engine.
The pair acquired premises in Kensington where they produced the car in March 1915, but they were interrupted by the first world war where both Martin and Bamforth served.
In 1920 Bamford left the company, but it was saved when Count Louis Zebrowski - a feted racing driver and engineer - invested in the company and in 1922 Bamford & Martin began producing cars to compete in the French Grand Prix with their machines going on to set world speed and endurance records.
Despite this the company went bankrupt in 1924 and was bought by Lady Charnwood, but despite this backing the company failed again in 1925 which caused Lionel Martin to leave.
A number of investors kept the company alive including Lady Charnwood, Bill Renwick and Bert Bertelli; renaming it as Astone Martin Motors. Renwick and Bertelli had worked together for a number of years previously and were able to use the reputation Aston Martin already had to begin the production of a new car.
The company produced road cars and race cars which enjoyed success at Le Mans and the Mille Miglia; but financial problems came back once again with the company almost going bust in 1932 until it was recused by Lance Brune, who passed it on to Sir Arthur Sutherland. Sutherland shifted the company's focus to road cars and they produced more than 700 models of tourers, saloons and dropheads before the second world war halted production.
DB To The Rescue
David Brown is commonly known as the saviour and allowed us to be bale to offer a fleet of Aston Martin hire cars. Taking over from his father David Brown Senior after he bought the company in 1947.
David Brown acquired the Lagonda business for it's Bentley engine, moving Lagonda to Aston Martin and sharing engines between the two. This was the beginning of the Aston Martin DB range which became iconic.
Brown's early DB cars performed well in Le Mans races and helped to build the brand as a racing pedigree, but it was the DB4 and in 1963 the DB5 which stood out from the crown. James Bond helped with this with the 1964 film Goldfinger having Bond drive the DB5.
Brown was also responsible for saving the company once again by paying off all of it's debts and selling it for a pittance to a business consortium. However this led to further trouble and in the midst of a recession, the company had to close its US factories and Aston Martin was once again in receivership.
In 1975 the company was bought by North American and Canadian businessmen Peter Sprague and George Minden they changed the branding to Aston Martin Lagonda, bringing in British property developer Alan Curtis.
Later in 1975 the factory reopened and before long had orders for cars from America, Japan and other international markets; with Curtis as MD pushing to develop more lines like the Vantage, Volante and Bulldog.
Despite enjoying success with Aston Martin, Sprague and Curtis sold it to petroleum magnate Victor Gauntlett in 1981 who was able to bring Aston Martin back onto the silver screen in another bond saga - The LIving Daylights, which saw him driving Gauntlett's own pre-production Vantage.
A meeting between Gauntlett and Walter Hayes, VP of Ford Europe, in 1987 led to Ford eventually taking a leading stage in the company in 1991.
Ford immediately began work on revitalising the DB range, introducing the DB7 to the market in 1992. Ford modernised the production line of Aston Martin, with 4,000 DB7s being build within 4 years - a record production level for the company.
Ford would go on to develop more DB ranges including the DB9 to replace the DB7, introduce the AMV8 Vantage concept car and the V8 Vantage. They brought motor racing back into AML's heritage in 2005 with Aston Martin Racing and a company called Prodrive responsible for design, development and management of the programme.
In 2007, a consortium led by David Richards - chairman of Prodrive - bought Aston Martin Lagonda for £475m, with Ford keeping a £40m stake in the company, this investment allowed Aston Martin to develop and produce the DB11 we have for rent.
