Brexit could halt As­ton Martin cars

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

As­ton Martin has warned it could be forced to halt pro­duc­tion of its lux­ury cars if the UK is un­able to se­cure a deal over Brexit.

Chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer Mark Wil­son said the im­pact of leav­ing the Euro­pean Union with­out a trade agree­ment would be “semi-cat­a­strophic”.

New cars built in the UK are tested by the Ve­hi­cle Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Agency whose ap­proval means they can be sold across the EU, but man­u­fac­tur­ers are warn­ing this set-up will cease if Brexit hap­pens with­out a deal.
