Six years ago Aston Martin had their back against the wall. They needed direction, innovation, and cost savings. That is why they chose Dr. Andy Palmer to lead the brand. Not only did he streamline production and make the company profitable again, but his efforts also gave us the AMR editions and the DBX SUV. Personally inspecting each model as it left the plant, quality is at an all-time high. That is why he decided to step down yesterday, after appointing an automotive genius to succeed him. In a press release this morning, we learned that former head of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers is now in the big chair.
The AMG division has been supplying engines, transmission, and operating systems for the past 5 years, prompting Mercedes to buy 5% of the company last year. This is a brilliant move to all involved, as Tobias injected AMG DNA to every Mercedes-Benz model. Even the CLA 45 AMG S offers 416 horsepower from their smallest sedan. Dr. Palmer has earned his retirement, and Mr. Moers will build amazing Aston Martins. Click the button below to find our dealer near you, and you won’t be disappointed.
