Global demand for Aston Martin’s DB11 — particularly across America and China — drove sales of its luxury sports cars to more than 5,000 last year. This pushed overseas turnover to £683m in 2017, under chief executive Andy Palmer, 54, with total profits rising to £148.8m, the highest on the league table. The Warwickshire business is developing a second site in Wales, launching further models of the Vantage, DBS Superleggera and its first SUV, and expanding in China and Japan. The brand’s investors — Adeem, Tejara and Italy’s Investindustrial — are reportedly considering a stock market listing.
