The Bamford Rose Philosophy

When Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin founded Aston Martin in 1913 they declared that an Aston Martin should be:

“A quality car of good performance and appearance: a car for the discerning driver with fast touring in mind, designed, developed and built as an individual.”

Today Bamford Rose is inspired by the same vision of exhilarating performance, high standards and individual character. We offer unrivalled and proven engineering expertise, precision craftsmanship and genuine personal service to a wider audience of Aston Martin owners. Behind Bamford Rose is a team of Original Equipment design engineers who have worked for many OEMs and delivered projects into production for several major automakers.

Most car modifying and tuning is either done by mechanics or over enthusiastic, and often under talented, Motorsport teams – not by Original Equipment design engineers.

Experienced engineers understand both the engineering theory behind how something works and the practical application of that knowledge. This allows the product to be evolved beyond the standard compromises that have to be made for production.

We use our engineering prowess to:

  • liberate extra horsepower while maintaining reliability
  • make drivetrains more durable and more responsive
  • reduce stopping distances
  • improve ride and handling

Experienced engineers understand both the engineering theory behind how something works and the practical application of that knowledge. This allows the product to be evolved beyond the standard compromises that have to be made for production, normally it is a compromise about cost. The accountants want to save money, so the ideal engineering solution is compromised to save money. At Bamford Rose, we know on each model, exactly what compromises have been made, and what to do about them.
