Aston Martin Flirts With Daimler
Der Spiegel reports that Aston Martin Boss Ulrich Bez met with Daimler's Dr Z last week, and both came away talking relationship. The two met to discuss the possibility of Aston purchasing engines and platforms from the German giant. Bez is just looking for a new technology partner, after the legendary British brand was bought by private investors. But Dr Z thinks love might be in the air, telling Der Spiegel that Aston "fits perfectly with Mercedes-Benz." But a German takeover of yet another British marque looks unlikely, as Aston investors are not ready to take the relationship to that level. After a few intoxicating product cycles with hot-shit AMG engines draped in sensual Aston metal, the attraction may just be too strong for either side to deny. Needless to say, we'll be watching creepily from our little corner of the internet.
