Aston Martin has a long and dramatic history, with all sorts of financial problems. Victor Gauntlett, long time owner of AM was once asked: “How could you make a small fortune out of Aston Martin?” He replied: “Start with a big one.” Today Aston Martin is well financed with money from Kuwait’s states fonds, Daimler AG, and a consortium around Canadian Lawrence Stroll. Rumours say repeatedly that Daimler could take over the majority one day. Aston Martin has decided to go electric or at least hybrid with all their cars very soon. This follows actually a path given by Mercedes-Benz and AMG, so rumours might become true.
