It’s being reported that Aston Martin has secured the funding it needs for its next-generation of sports cars that are expected to debut in 2015.
Engineers are already hard at work on the new models, which have been conceptualized and will replace the DB9, Vantage and Rapide models. Funding was finalized last week when Aston Martin announced that a £304 million bond was fully subscribed by global investors.
Aston Martin is reportedly seeking a new partner for its new platform that will replace the VH-platform in which the DB9, Vantage and Rapide are based on. It’s being reported that Aston Martin is currently in talks with Mercedes-Benz about the platform that is the basis for the Mercedes-Benz SLS and SL models.
