Can’t say we didn’t see this one coming. Following Audi’s announcement of it acquiring Ducati, Mercedes-Benz AMG has released a statement saying it will be ending its marketing relationship with the motorcycle brand.
“Since the end of 2010 a successful marketing cooperation has existed between AMG and Ducati,” Mercedes-Benz said. “The company takeover by a rival car manufacturer has understandably resulted in the end of any further collaboration. The takeover of Ducati was never our aim – our focus lies clearly in developing and producing premium performance cars and we will be concentrating all our energy on this.”
