September 10th, 2022, was not a good day for Aston Martin. In September 2022, the U.K-based automaker confirmed that a Swiss auto dealer had lodged a lawsuit against them in the United Kingdom. According to the official statement from Aston Martin, the dealer – called Nebula Project – is accusing the auto manufacturer of retaining their funds. In other funds, the Swiss dealer says that they have existing funds with Aston Martin and that the car company was supposed to export new cars to Switzerland. However, they never received the shipment of the cars, nor did they have their funds refunded. Now, Nebula Project has launched a lawsuit for $17.5 million against Aston Martin.
Car Buzz / Aston Martin is on hot water as a Swiss auto dealer alleges them of retaining their funds.
The allegation suggests that Aston Martin was supposed to notify the Swiss auto dealer about the export of its latest model: Valkyrie. Given the sensitivity of the deal, very less is known about the actual incident. However, we reached out to close acquaintances of Aston Martin. Based on the investigation, we were told that Aston Martin and Nebula Project had a written contract in July 2022. According to the contract, Nebula Project released funds for the two upcoming models of the British carmaker: Valkyrie and Valhalla. However, it is essential to note that both are supercars. This means that each car is pretty expensive.
According to the closest sources, Aston Martin was “supposed to” ship out a specified quantity of these two lavish cars to the Swiss dealer. As per the lawsuit, Nebula Project claims that the dealer has not yet received the supercars. Furthermore, the grievance of the Swiss dealer is that Aston Martin did not notify them. For instance, if there was a problem with the shipment or the production of either Valhalla or Valkyrie, the Swiss dealer was supposed to be notified about it. Why? Because they had a written contract in place. Above all, Nebula Project had released the funds. But sadly, none of that happened.
