Aston Martin to build bespoke powertrains with Mercedes-AMG

Aston Martin has announced moves towards a technical partnership with Mercedes-AMG. The proposed deal will see Aston Martin access significant Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Benz Cars’ resources, allowing the development of bespoke V8 powertrains and the use of certain components of electric/electronic architecture.
Daimler AG will own a stake of up to 5% 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.
An essential element of the planned partnership is a supply agreement between Mercedes-AMG, Daimler AG and Aston Martin. Aston Martin will continue to manufacture all of its sports cars at its Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, England.
Aston Martin product development director Ian Minards said: “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 in our next generation sports cars is, clearly, good news.”
The companies confirmed that their respective engineering teams would work together to optimize the implementation of this technical partnership. Both parties have agreed that no further details of the planned technical partnership will be revealed for the time being, though a letter of intent has been signed and both parties are working towards signing definitive agreements before the end of the year. Such agreements are subject to applicable regulatory approvals.
