Who makes Aston Martin
Aston Martin is owned by a consortium of investors, including Prestige Motor Holdings with a share reaching almost 40%, Asmar, whose share is slightly below 20%, Adeem (11%), Daimler and DAR Capital (5% each). In addition to this, Sthewaz Automotive has a 2% share in the British manufacturer. Being an iconic British brand, Aston Martin builds its cars within the UK.
Where is Aston Martin made
Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, the UK, is the historic home of the carmaker with a heritage of more than 50 years. Over 13,300 cars were designed and made there, including DB4, DB5, DB6, V8 Vantage, the William Towns Lagonda, as well as the original Vanquish. Before that, the company built its vehicles in Feltham, Middlesex. The Newport Pagnell era ended in 2007. In 2003 Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, England was opened and soon it became the main production facility. Production of the Rapide was moved to Gaydon in 2011. The number of Aston Martin manufacturing plants is growing. In February 2016 the company announced that the upcoming DBX crossover SUV will be produced at a new factory in St Athan, Wales.
