Aston Martin & Mercedes AMG Confirm Technical Partnership
With final agreement to be made before the end of the year, Aston Martin will be granted with full access to Mercedes-Benz and AMG technology to create a range of V8 engine that will be fitted in upcoming sportscars. As a result, the Germans will own a stake of up to five percent in Aston Martin.
“We are proud to work with Aston Martin and provide them with powertrain and e/e components for their forthcoming sports cars. This is proof of AMG’s technological and performance expertise and a real win-win situation for both sides,” said Ola Kallenius, head of Mercedes-AMG.
“We have selected AMG specifically as the basis for this powertrain development process. Aston Martin sources cutting edge technology from key suppliers around the globe and the opportunity to include content from Mercedes-AMG GmbH in our next generation sports cars is, clearly, good news,” added Ian Minards, Aston martin product development director.
