Clément-Auguste Martin, sometimes refered to as Charles Auguste Martin in some publications, was a French racing driver.
In 1921, Clément-Auguste Martin was the first sales representative of the then still young French motor vehicle manufacturer Amilcar. In Rueil-Malmaison he ran a car repair shop and converted road vehicles into racing cars.
With the racing cars based on the Amilcar models Type CO and CGSS, he started three times in the 1930s in the Le Mans 24 hour race and several times in the Bol d'Or. His best finish at Le Mans was eighth overall with Auguste Bodoignet in 1932 driving an Amilcar L6. The Bol d'Or 1931 he finished fourth and in a sports car race in Orléans in 1933 he finished second in the race for vehicles up to 1.1 litres displacement.
