Aston Martin Sold

The rumors were true. Ford has sold Aston Martin to a consortium of buyers that includes former BAR manager and current Prodrive chairman David Richards. This Richards quote is from Yahoo:
"I'm already feeling very excited about the whole prospect and what can be done with it," he enthused. "To me it's the most wonderful English car brand there is out there. It stands for everything that is engineering excellence in Britain, and that great understated style that the Aston Martin product represents. I've been an admirer for many, many years, so now to be part of it is very important for me."
Co-owners include American banker John Sinders and Kuwaiti companies Investment Bar and Adeem Investment.
