Mahinda interested in buying Bertone
Indians seem to have big plans with the European automakers. After Tata showed its interest in Jaguar and Land Rover another Indian manufacturer is interested in purchasing Bertone, the famous Italian coachbuilder and design house.
Mahindra, an important Indian automaker showed its interest in buying Bertone after another design house, Giugiaro, announced that is interested about the Italian manufacturer. Although the Italian producer was not present at the Geneva Auto Show due to its financial problems, it is unlikely to see the famous design house being declared bankrupt.
A good example of a surprising turnover was the well-known design house Pininfarina which with the success of manufacturers such as Alfa Romeo, Jaguar and Ferrari managed to evoid bankruptcy. Bertone could follow the same way as Pininfarina but this will only be decided by the future concepts which will be unveiled at the international auto shows.
