Aston Martin and Ford likely to extend engine supply deal for five more years

Aston Martin and Ford likely to extend engine supply deal for five more years

Aston Martin has reportedly signed an extension agreement on its engine supply agreement with Ford. If true, the deal will ensure that the cars produced by the British automaker will continue to be powered by the Cologne-built V8 and V12 engines for another five years.

The reports have emerged following a confirmation by Daimler about the company’s partnership talks with Aston Martin. The proposed Daimler deal reportedly calls for jointly-developing engines and electrical components which might also extend to platform sharing.

But, considering the Daimler deal will take a few years to materialise, talks of an extension makes logical sense as Aston Martin will need to ensure there will not be a halt in production due to delayed engine supply.  The deal is also likely to ensure that Aston Martin gets ample time to integrate the Daimler-sourced AMG engines into their product line-up.

Currently, the VH platform provided by Ford underpins Aston Martin’s models like Vantage, Vanquish and DB9. Though the company has declined to comment on supplier agreements, the deal would ensure that there would not be major changes in the Aston Martin line-up for at least another five years. But in a distant future, the range of Aston Martin could be powered by the same engine that is expected to drive the rumoured 911 rival currently dubbed the SLC AMG.
