About the Author

Richard Loveys started his career as a graduate trainee with the Rootes Group in 1963 and stayed with the company in various positions for some seven years. During that time he owned several of the Group's cars. After a short spell in the computer industry he returned to the automobile world and worked for the UK importer and distributor of Fiat cars. Finally he became a management consultant/lecturer at a university. He has been an active member of the Aston Martin Owners Club for many years and wrote the Shire book Aston Martin, which was published in 2015.


This excellent and affordable paperback ... is an ideal introduction to the once-vast empire, including its impressive war efforts and not shying away from its rise and fall. * Classic & Sports Car *
