Ford to Sell Aston Martin to Group Led by Ex-Racer – New York Times The Ford Motor Company will raise $848 million toward its overhaul plan by selling Aston Martin, its British luxury sports car brand, the automaker said Monday. The principal buyer is David Richards, a former British racing champion who described the transaction as beginning “a new era, perhaps a new chapter in this extraordinary story of Aston Martin,” a 94-year-old nameplate best known as the preferred ride of James Bond.
All I can say is … Thank God !!!! Aston Martin, one of the worlds greatest luxury sports car brands didn’t need the weight of being owned by Ford. It will soon have it’s dignity back.
