Volkswagen’s is still in hot water as a result of the Dieselgate scandal, so much so that it may be forced to sell Bentley, Lamborghini or Ducati in order to pay for the damages.
According to , Volkswagen AG has taken out a massive 20 billion euro loan in order to compensate angry owners and government bodies for lying about the emission levels of their cars, and that loan must be paid back within a year (late 2016).
The company is hoping for the best but planning for the worst, which could mean selling off one of their three major luxury brands. They are currently in the process of carving out the non-truck operations of their MAN’s subsidiary, whose products include ship engines, mini power plants, special gear units, propulsion components and testing systems.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but while the worst case scenario seems unlikely, it is interesting to ponder what major corporation could end up purchasing Lamborghini and Bentley from Volkswagen AG. Do you have any ideas?
