Mercedes and Aston Martin in talks of possible collaboration
There are whispers going around that Mercedes and Aston Martin are looking to forming a partnership sometime in the future. Lord knows what we’re going to make of this, but since the word came from Mercedes chief Dieter Zetsche himself, we figure that there might more truth to this than what we originally thought.
Speaking to Autocar, Zetsche mentioned that he believes that a collaboration between the German automaker and the British marquee could happen down the road. “Smaller brands need help with new technology,” he said.
“It’s possible we could do things in the future."
The two car brands aren’t strangers to one another. Two years ago, Aston Martin and Mercedes launched a partnership that was called ’Project Alligator’. Now, it looks like the two brands are poised to renew their partnership which, in the event it happens, could see both Mercedes and Aston strike an agreement for a number of ventures, not the least of which could include a variety of things like research, development, and production of new engines as well as new models in the future.
