No.

Ford sold AM in 2007. The car pictured is a 2012 model. New body shape and new interior plus upgraded engine, amongst other changes.

The Vanquish model was created under Ford's ownership.

The Vanquish model was created under Ford's ownership.



By that premise New York, New Jersey North Carolina and 10 other states are British.
They where created under British ownership.

Not really a great analogy. Ford, they of the ubiquitous label, controlled Aston Martin during the Vanquish's creation and development. There is certainly residual elements of that, including the power plant, in the current model.

It's a perfect analogy.

Britain owned those 3 States named plus 10 others during there creation and development

Unless you know otherwise ?

The Dutch East India Company controlled a good portion of what is now modern day New York State.

New Amsterdam captured by The British in 1664.

No, New Amsterdam became New York. The Vanquish did not exist when Ford purchased Aston Martin and did when they sold it.

The name New York didn't exist when The Dutch occupied New Holland

It did when The U.S. gained independence.

We could play this game all night. but it is fun.

And under whose ownership was the name Vanquish created?
