AutoExpressUK reports that Mercedes-Benz AMG and Aston Martin’s collaborations may be three to four years away, after the two divisions confirmed to be working together on future projects. The agreement was signed back in July and this is the first indication of a solidified time scale.
Rumors point to the possibility that Mercedes-Benz AMG could supply turbocharged V8 engines, transmissions, and electrical components to Aston Martin, to replace the British automaker’s current line of Ford and Jaguar-based components. Currently, Aston Martin’s V8 and V12 engines are built at Ford’s Cologne plant in Germany.
Mercedes-Benz is also working together with Renault and Nissan to work on small cars, as well as possible collaborations with Infiniti.
