Mercedes-Benz is to increase its equity stake in Aston Martin to 20 percent in a deal that will see the British sports car maker gain access to German technology. With former AMG boss Tobia Moers recently taking over at Aston Martin, the move is hardly a surprise and paves the way for electric and hybrid powertrains for future models.
Oh no! Does this mean the class and elegance of another fine English car is going to be ruined in the name of modern German efficiency? One only has to look at what has happened to Rolls Royce cars with their shrinking grilles and blacked out everything. If I wanted a German car, I would buy one. People buy classy English cars for a reason. The Germans don't seem to understand this.
