In each production of Aston Martin and Lagonda cars, some 600 lb of aluminum alloy is used with methods ranging from hand-forming aluminum sheet into body panels to pressure die casting complex components.
Aluminum alloys in their various forms have been used in Aston Martin cars for many years. Initially the purpose was for lightness, especially in the competition field; and this in addition to the relative ease of manipulation and simplification of body tooling has lead to continued usage.
