Daimler, owners of the Mercedes-Benz brand, is reportedly in ‘early stage’ talks with Aston Martin about supplying components and working with the British car maker on technical assistance.

The talks involve Aston Martin bosses and the two major shareholders, Investindustrial and the Kuwaiti-listed Investment Dar.

A Daimler spokeswoman was quoted as saying that no decisions about potential collaboration have been made, but that “both sides know and respect each other very much”.While buying in base engines from Mercedes makes sense, any future collaboration could go as far as platform sharing, with the current SLS supercar being an ideal potential candidate.
