Ducati and Mercedes-AMG are appearing together at the Bologna Motor Show on December 3 to 11, 2011, to present to the public a series of new vehicles that underscore the partnership they entered into a year ago. Ducati has its new Ducati Streetfighter 848 and Mercedes-AMG has its new SLK 55 AMG, both sporting a matching “Streetfighter yellow” color.
The Ducati and Mercedes-Benz AMG partnership
Ducati and Mercedes-AMG have entered into a partnership deal at the November 2010 Los Angeles Motor Show. This entailed Ducati calling AMG its “official car partner” since the beginning of the 2011 MotoGP season.
With this cooperation agreement, Ducati drivers Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden have been sporting AMG’s logo on their racing overalls and on their motorcycles.
The AMG logo can also be found in the Ducati Lounge and on its official team wear. More importantly, under the deal, the Ducati corporate fleet has been switched with Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
