Aston Martin to Use Lexus Engines?

Lexus LFA Engine

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reports that Aston Martin is interested using Lexus engines to power future models.

The LFA’s V10 is mentioned specifically, though I would be surprised to see the Yamaha-built engine in anything other than a Lexus. Also suggested is a V8, and although an exact engine isn’t specified, the best guess would be the IS F’s 416hp 5.0L .

(The two companies do have an existing relationship — Aston Martin currently sells a modified version of the Toyota iQ city car, and Toyota President Akio Toyoda & Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez have raced together at Nürburgring in the past.)
