This news comes during the height of Aston Martin’s 100-year celebrations, and just months after the company was partially sold to investors Investindustrial – securing a £150m cash injection for future product development.

Currently, this announcement is for an unsigned letter of intent – although both parties hope to be in a position to sign the agreement towards the end of the year.
