According to Auto Express,Aston Martin has announced that it is developing a new vehicle architecture that will be introduced over the next few years–most likely starting with the 2016 DB9. This new platform is being specifically developed to cross-pollinate with components from Daimler AG, as part of the partnership both companies set up last year. This includes utilizing electrical components from Daimler and working together to create new V-8 engines, although Aston will continue to source its V-12 engines from Ford until 2018.
