Project Alligator: Mercedes-Aston Martin partnership?

Mercedes Benz Aston Martin

According to Car Magazine, Mercedes Benz and Aston Martin are planning a cooperation in the future. This is not the first time rumors like this showed up, but now it seems that things are serious. Dubbed “Project Alligator”, the partnership could mean that Mercedes engines could power future Aston Martins (for example, AMG’s 6.2-litre V8 could be used on Vantage models), German diesel and hybrids for Aston Martin, platforms shared by the two manufacturers, and a partnership between Maybach and Aston Martin is also possible.

We’ll get more details about this very interesting partnership in the September issue of Car Magazine.
