Mr Palmer said: “Our strong financial performance and continued profitability reflects the growing appeal of our cars, with the new DB11 Volante and Vantage expected to stimulate further demand.”
Revenue in the first three quarters of the year was £567m, 84pc up on the last time around, and pre-tax earnings were almost four times higher at £121m. Pre-tax profit was £22m, reversing the £124m loss at the same point a year ago. Third quarter sales were 62pc better at £156m.
Mark Wilson, chief financial officer, said the strong performance meant that guidance for the full year had been revised upwards. Aston now expects to deliver annual revenues of at least £840m, a £10m upgrade, and pre-tax earnings of £180m-plus, some £5m better.
