A 6.3-litre twin turbo V8-powered Ducati Monster seems the obvious apogee of the nascent relationship announced in Los Angeles yesterday, but sadly co-operation is currently limited to AMG sponsoring Ducati in the MotoGP series.
"I am very pleased that we are able to announce our strategic cooperation with Ducati today. AMG and Ducati ideally complement each other, as both companies share the same values: racing as the driving passion, and high performance plus exclusivity as the central brand messages of both AMG and Ducati. This long-term cooperation will help us to jointly access new customer groups," said Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, at a press conference.
The first visible results of the cooperation between AMG and Ducati will be joint marketing and sponsoring activities, they tell us.
During selected AMG events, participants will be able to take test drives with Ducati motorcycles, and Ducati customers will similarly have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the latest AMG high-performance cars.
Wonder if there'll be a media launch day to help get the party started...
