Maybach as a brand has slipped way back in competition. And now they seem to be in mode-damage control. If reports are to be believed, Daimler is almost getting into an agreement with Aston Martin to come up with a brand new ultra-luxury sedan. Daimler is the parent company for both Maybach and Mercedes-Benz, and with this scheme, Aston Martin stands to gain access to Mercedes-Benz’s engine technology. But none of the concerned parties confirmed or rejected the reports.
