As­ton bounces back with record prof­its

Auto Express - - News -

FOL­LOW­ING the launch of the all-new Van­tage last week (Is­sue 1,500), As­ton Martin has an­nounced record pre-tax prof­its of £22mil­lion for the first nine months of 2017. That fig­ure is in stark con­trast to a £124mil­lion loss the Bri­tish brand made in the same pe­riod of 2016.

Over­all rev­enue was up 84 per cent to £567mil­lion, with strong sales of the DB11 and limited-run Van­quish Za­gato con­tribut­ing to this. As­ton shifted 3,330 mod­els in the first nine months of 2017, up 65 per cent, with an av­er­age trans­ac­tion price of £150,000.

It’s the first time since 2008 that As­ton Martin has recorded four con­sec­u­tive quar­ters of profit.
