Rumors about a partnership between Aston Martin and Maybach first appeared at the end of last year when we reported that the two companies would team up for a luxury sedan. Now, AutoCar reports that the two companies are set to bring a concept car developed together to the Frankfurt show in September 2011.

While neither Aston Martin nor Maybach would comment on this rumor, it is believed that the concept to be displayed in Frankfurt will be a luxury car with a high-quality interior finished to the hand-crafted standards of a British luxury saloon.

This news shouldn’t really surprise anyone considering Mercedes needs to decide by the end of June which partner they will choose to develop replacements for the 57 and 62 saloons. This type of partnership is mutually beneficial because Aston Martin can bring its interior design skills to the table, particularly the use of traditional materials in conjunction with hi-tech features, and Mercedes can share its new alloy body technology and engines for third-generation Vantage and DB9 models.

Well, I think this one would really look good, considering that both Aston Martin and Maybach are top names. But what I want to know is whether it would lean more on the sporty or executive side.

Well, I am starting to have a good idea of the car that they would be able to come up with, if this indeed pushes through. It would probably be more like an executive version of the Vantage.

It would be a mix of sporty luxury yet fabolous car. This type of car would be the result if those two company merged together on this projecct.

Yeah, Aston Martin is more into sports cars while Maybach specializes in executive rides, so I am really wondering what they would come up with on this one.

Let’s not forget that this is still a concept car and there is a possibility that they will dropped its production plan. Well, same here I don’t like on how it looks and still I don’t know on how it will perform.

Oh yeah! So, Aston Martin and Maybach really continue to merge their design to make a production car. Visually, I don’t like what I see, this car doesn’t look at all. I hate its long nose and the grille as well. I think it would be better if the exterior would be in Aston styling and the elegance of Maybach in the interior.

Well, if this rumor is indeed true, it would really be rather interesting to see what they would come up with. I would say that the two companies are really different from each other that the work that they are doing is certainly going to be something unique.
