Aston Martin AMG ?

Bloomberg is reporting that Mahindra & Mahindra along with Investindustrial are interested in buying Aston Martin from its owner Investment Dar.

Earlier this month, a report was indicating that Toyota and Mahindra & Mahindra want to acquire Aston Martin, with owner Investment Dar reportedly asking for about 800M USD. Now we hear that the winning bidder will obtain 50 percent of the voting rights and a 40 percent equity stake, while the rest will be retained by Investment Dar, other Kuwaiti investors and AM management.

If Investindustrial wins, they want to implement AMG technology and parts in Aston Martin vehicles. They plan on investing in current models and add new ones as well to attract additional customers.

None of the parties confirmed or denied these rumors.

Great news for the brand. A tech infusion by Mercedes is just whats needed.

Sounds like an amazing possibility. Hope it's not all hot air, the thought of a gorgeous Aston with a roaring AMG engine has me weak in the knees...

Its one of those rare occasions where you love the parts they will get but would rather the two be seperate. Ild rather them just co engineer their cars and keeps physical parts seperate. But AMG is top level stuff at least :)

Daimler should buy A-M and have it as their Sporty/Luxury brand.

Isn't that what Mercedes is for? If Daimler was to buy into Aston Martin, it would be their answer to Ferrari, Porsche, and possibly, Maserati.

Daimler already has the AMG range that competes directly with AM. Buying AM is not a solution, selling them tech is the best option.
