Default Aston Martin in Technical Partnership with Mercedes-AMG

Aston Martin have announced a technical partnership with Mercedes-AMG.


The proposed deal will see Aston Martin access significant Mercedes-AMG GmbH and Mercedes-Benz Cars’ resources, allowing the development of bespoke V8 powertrains and the use of certain components of electric/electronic (e/e) architecture.
Daimler AG will own a stake of up to five per cent non-voting shares in Aston Martin depending on the progress of the agreement. The company will join the existing shareholders that include Investment DAR, Adeem Investment and Investindustrial. The technical partnership will support Aston Martin’s launch of a new generation of models that will incorporate cutting edge technology and newly-developed bespoke V8 powertrains.
An essential element of the planned partnership is a supply agreement between Mercedes-AMG, Daimler AG and Aston Martin.
Aston Martin, which is Britain’s most exclusive sports car company, is celebrating its centenary this year. The company will continue to manufacture all of its sports cars at its Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, England.

Daimler to take 5% stake in Aston Martin.

Under the deal, Aston Martin will to team up with Daimler's high-performance Mercedes-AMG GmbH division to develop a new generation of bespoke V8 engines for the 100-year-old British company.

The deal will help Aston Martin to spread the cost of developing new vehicles. Aston Martin is the only global luxury carmaker not attached to a larger manufacturer.
