Prodrive has announced they have received a "record £15 ($23.8 / £17.7) million order for supercar composite body structures" from "one of the world’s most prestigious vehicle manufacturers." The company declined to elaborate but Automobile Magazine is reporting the components could be destined for a new Aston Martin.

Nothing is official but the magazine speculates Aston Martin has switched to a UK-based supplier for a new supercar. We haven't heard any rumors about a One-77 successor, but Automobile says the One-77 had exposed carbon fiber in the cabin so Prodrive's hint that "the greatest challenge for component finish is on the interior parts" must mean the components are headed for a new Aston Martin. That sounds rather weak, but the magazine points out Prodrive chairman David Richards is also Aston Martin's chairman.
