How many numbers are in a Aston Martin VIN?
Every Aston Martin Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique 17-character alphanumeric code specific to each Aston Martin vehicle. This VIN provides a wealth of information about the individual vehicle, including the year of manufacture, the country and factory where it was built, engine and transmission types, exterior color, safety equipment, and more.
The first three characters of the VIN, known as the World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI), are “SCF” for Aston Martin vehicles. This WMI code reveals:

- S: Country of Manufacture - United Kingdom
- C: Manufacturer - Aston Martin
- F: Specific Identifier for Aston Martin vehicles
