Aston Martin not for sale
Dave Richards smashed any rumors and confirmed that Aston Martin is not for sale. "The company is not for sale," Richards insisted during the Nurburgring 24-hour race last weekend, where Aston’s N24 Vantages finished 1-2-3 in their class.
"This speculation is only there because we are talking to people all the time about engines," Richards said. "But we are always talking to people, and it doesn’t mean we’re for sale."
The company also announced that in the future Aston Martin’s models could be powered by Mercedes-Benz engines. “We are guaranteed engine supply by Ford until 2012 and we are talking to Mercedes, but then we are talking to Ford and we talk to everybody,” Richards said.
