Maybach future in doubt as Aston Martin and Daimler talks fall through
Aston Martin was supposed to help the struggling Maybach brand with the next range of models. Well, apparently someone was asking for a bit too much in the deal and the talks have now ceased. In return for helping the Maybach brand with new styling and model expansion, Aston was supposed to get some nice technological updates from Daimler including M and S class chassis on which to build models on as well as the M278 twin turbo V8. This partnership never made much sense to us but then again neither did the Maybach revival to begin with. It appears the luxury brand may go back to being dead.
