Aston only a short while ago announced a major investment and equity sale of some £200 Million or so to the Canadian Billionaire Lawrence Stoll and due to this and his involvement they are meant to be re-branding Racing Point F1 Team to Aston Martin for t

Financial Trouble for UK Car Makers?

But it's just something that I'm wondering, if I were Geely/Daimler, I might think it would be worth it to start owning Aston Martin if it could be bought so reasonably. Imagine how many Mercedes-Benz dealerships there are. If some of those dealerships co

Financial Trouble for UK Car Makers?

Frankly, I love it. I find it interesting that “market” price, if shares are publicly sold, relates to cost of ownership. However, market price does not always align perfectly with actual “worth” of the company. Like here in the US, private shareholders c

Financial Trouble for UK Car Makers?

I'm doing research on Aston Martin. The market cap on Aston Martin Lagonda right now is below 500 million Pounds. The value of the company is slightly higher than that. The company also has a new investor who has committed to putting in $200M+ US Dollars

Financial Trouble for UK Car Makers?

But the problem with Aston Martin is years in the making. Whether it's commonly admitted or not, Ford was an ideal steward and owner of the brand with open pockets and global distribution of parts and service. Ford sold Aston in a strong product, cash, an

Two month update with the Aston Martin DB11

Two month update with the Aston Martin DB11

I thought kids in Germany were relatively well behaved. Looks like there are some bad apples out there! I'm not sure in USA we'd get a great service experience. I have a lot of friends who complain about the service experience with Aston Martin. One said

Two month update with the Aston Martin DB11

Definitely an extraordinary experience and I don\'t regret at all getting the AM DB11. However, a mix of good and not so good and reminds me of some recent watch collecting experience with some watches. First the good - 1) The car is incredible. I actuall

Aston Martin DB 9

Ive had this V12 Vantage for 10 years now. Been bullet proof so far. Things to watch:- 1. Go to YouTube and research Bamford Rose. That will give you ideas on service and faults 2. At temperature listen for the DB9 "Tick" under the RH Door. If you hear a
