Though Aston Martins sells for big bucks, don't assume that means that the company that makes them is generating big profits. In fact the British automaker has been struggling since a group of investors bought the brand from Ford
back in 2007. But a new deal promises to give Aston the capital it needs. That deal involves a 37.5% stake which Italian private equity firm Investindustrial has just taken in Aston Martin
Lagonda Ltd, purchasing the shares from Kuwaiti firm Investment Dar for $240 million.
