It’s official! British car manufaturer Aston Martin confirmed in a recent press release that its next-generation vehicles will be powered by AMG engines. In exchange, Daimler AG will own as much as 5% of non-voting shares, depending on the progress of the agreement.
Ola Källenius, Head of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “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.”
“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.” said Ian Minards, Aston Martin product development director.
