Aston Martin by Ogle

David Ogle established his design consultancy company, Ogle Design, in 1954 and before his untimely death in 1962 had successfully introduced a glass fibre bodied Mini based 'kit-car', the SX1000. He also had an idea to build a larger and more futuristic car but it wasn't until well after his death that the project was able to progress under the careful eye of Ogle's successor, Tom Karen. The car that was eventually conceived was the DBS V8 based Aston Martin Ogle, better known as 'The Sotheby Special' as the project was financed by tobacco company,  W.O.Wills, who used the car to promote their new premium cigarette brand.
