Thank goodness Reuters has all those layers of fact checkers and editors.

Hmm… Maybe we hold off on shutting down civilization until we have some real data.
Let’s see, $931 million (US) for a company that makes about 7,000 cars per year. If my math is correct, that works out to $133,000 per car. The DB9 goes for between $169,750 and $183,250, depending on the options. The Vantage Coupe and Roadster go for less, but I doubt you could get out the door for less than $133,000. I’m not even going to think about the Vanquish which goes in the neighborhood of $250,000 (it’s a V-12). I guess that means its cheaper to buy Aston Martin than it is to by an Aston Martin.
