At the launch for the new Aston Martin Vanquish launch, the company head Dr. Ulrich Bez took time out to squash rumors of the supercar producer being up for sale.
Bez says that the rumors were sparked by mass market automakers trying to brake into the sports car segment. Bez said “I can categorically say that we are not for sale. In the future – 2015, 2016 – it is impossible to predict, but today it will not happen.”
He went on to elaborate “Every day I am approached by someone making contact for someone else who they say is interested in the brand, but we are not working towards it. We are launching our best-ever car in the Vanquish, we have a more diverse, profitable product line then ever before and we have thrived during our six years of independence.
“We are a good news story, and for sure, people want to be a part of that – but that also means we are looking to the future as we are and end with confidence.”
There’s some direct clarification for you.
