Mercedes and Aston Martin have been in negotiations for the loan of technology for a long time. Subsidiaries Lagonda and Maybach would benefit from the partnership.

Rumors on a possible collaboration between Aston Martin and Mercedes have been circulating since 2008. Unofficial sources have talked about a common usage of platforms and propellers, but rumors haven’t been confirmed by representatives of the two companies.

According to the latest speculation, the two brands have entered an agreement that stipulates the future production of the Maybach at the Aston Martin plants in Gaydon. The standard limo from the people at Daimler would lend the platform of the new generation of Mercedes S-Klasse and debut as a concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year.

In turn, Aston Martin would benefit from more components from the Mercedes range. These include the platform of the ML SUV, which will be used for the future Lagonda, and twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8, 435 hp and 700 Nm.

It seems that the partnership between the two companies will not stop here, as the collaborative plan takes into account the loan of hybrid technology, diesel engines and platforms. More information on the details of the agreement will be posted around the time of the Frankfurt Show in September.
