Maybe they shouldn't have charged $600 apiece for mediocre wheels, or $450 for a front grille, or $50 for an oil filler cap. Overpriced hype vs. market reality.

They had some good stuff, like their 3-port solenoid, the only one with a plugin and play connector on the market. It's sad to see them go.

So where is this information coming from? Is it just the merchandise or is the US operations (R&D type stuff) closing as well? Are they no longer entering IMSA/ALMS with Aston Martin USA?
