On Thursday the company suffered an 18 percent drop in share prices to 51.6 percent, making it the company's biggest one-day drop since March.

"We are making very good progress on my first priority, the rebalancing of supply and demand and reducing dealer stock as we reset the business and restore exclusivity," said Stroll, who now serves as chairman of the company.

Former-CEO Andy Palmer was also ousted in favour of ex-AMG boss Tobias Moers, while former Jaguar Land Rover finance chief Kenneth Gregor was also brought in to fulfill a similar role.

The company has also taken out a £20 million loan from the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) to help it weather to storm of the ongoing pandemic. It posted a loss of £119 million for the first quarter of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic hit the company hard. Sales dropped by nearly a third and staff were furloughed or had their salaries cut.

The introduction of the DBX, Aston Martin's first SUV (pictured above), however, has not been affected so far. Deliveries of the Welsh-built car are still expected to begin later this summer while the company is still pushing ahead with plans to introduce a new range of mid-engined cars.
