In July we learned that Aston Martin and AMG are planning to work together, that is, AMG will deliver V8 engines for future Aston Martin models. However, it now seems that the first results of that cooperation could take another 3 to 4 years.
When InvestIndustrial took a stake in Aston Martin, rumours already indicated that this could indicate a future partnership with AMG, because InvestIndustrial’s ties with the German company. This week, an official Aston Martin press release confirmed the rumours: Aston Martin and AMG have signed a letter of intent, agreeing that Aston Martin will get access to AMG V8 powertrains and electric/electronic architecture components, in exchange for a 5% stake in the Aston Martin company.
