The future of Aston Martin is under a lot of changes as of recently. Italian equity firm Investindustrial, which recently sold Ducati to Audi, cashed out £150 million ($242 million USD) for a 37.5 percent stake in Aston. The company will work alongside majority shareholder Investment Dar and minority shareholders including Aston CEO Ulrich Bez and Aston chairman David Richards.

New reports now suggest that Aston Martin is looking to receive Mercedes-Benz AMG engines, gearboxes and electric architectures

This isn’t the first time that Investindustrial has been in a partnership with Mercedes AMG. When it owned Ducati, Investindustrial had a strong marketing relationship with AMG.

“We know these guys. They were behind Ducati and we had a very closely knit marketing deal with them,” said a Mercedes-Benz source. “They rang and asked if they won the bid for Aston would we be interested in being a technology partner.”

Rumors say that Aston is seeking access to AMG’s V12 engine and much more.
