“That is not to say AMG is no longer part of MV Agusta; nothing has changed there,” Joshua says.
“Mercedes-AMG still have a 25% stake in MV Agusta and the relationship is still robust, with perhaps new co-operation news to come out sometime in 2017.”
So does that mean no AMG-badged new models at the coming EICMA show next week?
“MV Agusta is an ever-evolving brand with many interesting alliances and co-operation that makes the marque so special and leading edge,” Joshua says.
“To think in less than two years they’ve had the likes of Zagato (F4Z), Lewis Hamilton (Brutale 800 Dragster RR LH44), Mercedes-AMG (general partnership and Solarbeam concept), Pirelli (Diablo Rosso Brutale 800) and Motul (general partnership) working close with them, let alone the smaller projects around the world is just amazing.”
