Aston-Martin Powered by Mercedes?

Daimler's Mercedes-Benz to launch cooperation with Aston Martin
03.16.08, 1:26 PM ET

FRANKFURT (Thomson Financial) - Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz aims to launch a cooperation with Aston Martin, German weekly magazine Der Spiegel reported, without citing sources.

Aston Martin may buy engines from Mercedes-Benz or cooperate on entire platforms as supply contracts with Ford Motor Co (nyse: F - news - people ) may end following Ford's possible sale of Jaguar and Land Rover to Tata, the magazine said in an excerpt of an article to be published tomorrow.

Daimler may also be interested in buying a stake in the sportscar maker, Der Spiegel said. However, Aston Martin's owners currently are not interested in selling the company, most of which Ford sold to holding company Primrose for 848 mln usd.

Wow, I would certainly buy-in, assuming I had that kind of scratch. I don't really know what 'buy-in' means. I hope they don't blow it with a totally ridiculous design.
