It is also the first Aston Martin to be built in Wales, at a former Ministry of Defence site in St Athan in Glamorgan.

Around 80% of all DBX models are expected to be exported and sold overseas.

“I’m extremely proud of the Aston Martin team who have worked so hard to transform this ex-Ministry of Defence site into a world-class car manufacturing facility, to now be producing cars, it is testament to the resilience and fortitude of everyone at Aston Martin,” said Keith Stanton, interim chief operating officer.

In London, Aston Martin shares were down 1% changing hands at 46.86p.
