The Q1 loss, which is up £90.7m year on year, came even though revenues rose to £541.7m, up 9% year on year

Aston Martin’s losses ballooned in the first half of this year, hitting £285.4 million, as a result of supply shortages, foreign-exchange movements and high interest payments on its debts.

The loss - up from £90.7m in the same period last year - came despite revenues rising to £541.7m, up 9% year on year.

Almost half of the loss - £134m - came as a result of currency fluctuations on the firm’s debt, while it also had to pay £63m in interest charges.
