RumorMill : Mercedes-Benz to use BMW engines

With BMW cleaning up International Engine of the Year awards in several categories, and for several years, it makes sense to profit from its experience in this field. So according to Auto Motor und Sport , BMW is in talks with Mercedes about sharing platform engines . BMW’s head of development, Klaus Draeger said "We are ready in principle to sell our engines to a competitor. And yes, we are talking openly with Mercedes about several possibilities” .

And don't worry , BMW won't sell their old engines to Mecedes . The engine that will probably make a transition across brands , is Bimmer's all-new V12 that will be featured in in the new 7 Series and suspected baby Rolls-Royce sedan. Mercedes would drop it under the hood of their flagship S-Class and Maybach.
