Official: Prodrive owner of the Aston Martin
Aston Martin would be sold by the end of the week, sources said yesterday at the opening day of the Geneva Motor Show. "It’s a done deal. All that remains is to cross the t’s and dot the i’s."
Aston Martin will sign the deal early on Friday in Detoit. The sale will transfer ownership of the Aston Martin to Prodrive, owned by David Richards.
The price is rumoured to be in the region of £500m, about half what Ford was asking when it first put the company up for sale six months ago.
