The foundations were laid for the commencement of proper series production with the formation of Aston Martin Motors Ltd in 1926 under the stewardship of Augustus 'Bert' Bertelli and William Renwick. Built at the firm's new Feltham works, the 'new generation' of 1½-litre Aston Martins was first displayed at the 1927 London Motor Show at Olympia. Like his predecessors, 'Bert' Bertelli understood the effect of competition success on Aston Martin sales and sanctioned the construction of two works racers for the 1928 season. Based on the 1½-litre, overhead-camshaft road car, the duo featured dry-sump lubrication, and this feature was carried over to the International sports model, introduced in 1929.

In the meantime, Aston Martin had displayed three new models on its stand at the 1928 London Motor Show at Olympia: a four-seat open car, a four-door saloon, and an open two-seater on the short (8' 6") chassis, which was described as the 'Standard Sports Model'. Standard Sports Model was described in the catalogue as having a dry sump.
