Aston Martin and Daimler have reportedly revived discussions of an engine supply deal. The British sporting marque is reportedly looking to source replacements for its ageing, but enormously potent, powertrains.

The companies have been known to have been talking on-and-off since 2008, with early plans involving a development and production tie-up with Daimler's now-defunct Maybach brand.

These latest reports follow news this year that the British marque has taken on a new shareholder in Investindustrial, providing Aston with a capital injection of more than AU$600 million over the next five years (the private equity fund taking a 37.5 percent stake).

According to business paper Bloomberg, Aston is hoping to finalise an engine supply deal in the next two months, which would allow the company to advance the development of new models and a replacement for its VH platform.

A deal could be some time away however, with a Daimler representative confirming to Bloomberg that while talks are ongoing, no decisions have been made.

It's unclear which Mercedes/AMG engines Aston would seek to use in its new models, although we may yet see a bi-turbo V8 engine in the the brand's future.

For Daimler, any potential tie-up with Aston would see the British marque join a list of customers that includes Pagani, which uses AMG engines in its Zonda and Huayra hypercas.
