Mercedesí Role in Aston Martinís Future


Quote:
Several years ago Aston Martin inked a deal with Mercedes-Benz. The German firm secured a non-voting 5 percent stake in the famous sports-car maker and in exchange the folks in Britain are getting a number of important technologies.

'We look to Mercedes for three things, thereís the powertrain (read: transmissions), the electrical architecture, and specifically thereís the base architecture in terms of V8 engines and technology. And thatís really where weíre putting our focus today,' said Julian Jenkins, Aston Martinís president of the Americas.

Not surprising.

When I e-mailed my old mate who works for Aston Martin to tell him about the new-to-me AMG CLK63 he happened to be sitting in AMG's offices.

I expect the next generation of Astons will have AMG engines and transmissions, and when the current Aston owners get fed up of loosing money (as all owners of Aston Martin - the factory, not individual cars - have done), AMG / MB will be the new owners waiting in the wings.
