Aston Martin Officially Confirms DBX Production
As one of the stars of this year’s Geneva Motor Show, there have been many rumors surrounding the 2015 Aston Martin DBX Concept, but the British automaker confirmed that it would, in fact, be building a production crossover based on the concept vehicle. The announcement was made as part of a press release stating that Aston Martin is planning to raise around $306 million by issuing shares.
