The Aston Martin A3 is a prototype built in 1921. It is the oldest surviving Aston Martin and was the 3rd car built by the company.
Over the car's long history it has been modified many times, over and over again. The A3 is not a particularly powerful car, being fitted with only a 1.5 litre four-cylinder side-valve engine rated at 11 hp. In 1923, the car able to lap Brooklands at 84.5 mph.
This is the earliest racing Aston Martin. It was driven by Count Louis Zborowski, and it was one of two cars entered in the French Grand Prix at Strasbourg in 1923.
A3 is now owned by the Aston Martin Heritage Trust (AMHT) and from 2006, has undergone a full restoration back to its 1921 specification.
