Aston Martin and AMG tied the knot earlier this year and new details are starting to emerge about their high-profile partnership.

In an interview with Auto Express, Daimler CEO Dr Dieter Zetsche said "Aston’s new investor - Investindustrial - was convinced that it would be helpful to associate with someone with experience in fast car technology." He went on to say "When you make decisions like this it usually takes three to four years to see the results.”

Zetsche declined to elaborate but the terms of the partnership call for AMG to supply Aston Martin with bespoke V8 powertrains and certain electrical components in exchange for up to a five percent stake in the automaker. The parts are expected to be used in the replacements for the aging DB9 and V8 Vantage.
