Investment Dar, which since 2007 is the owner of 64% of shares in Aston Martin, that are valued at $ 800 million. It is clear, however, that with such a large transaction everything can still be negotiated, so each of the potential investors made their offers.

According to financial resource, currently on the battlefield remained only two companies: Indian tractor maker Mahindra & Mahindra, which reportedly offered the highest bid, and the investment fund Investindustrial offering $ 400 million. Mahindra & Mahindra earlier bid for buying Jaguar and Land Rover and Saab, but the company eventually became the owner of SsangYong. Tractor manufacturer wants to enter new markets, which supposedly would be achieved with the help of Aston Martin, increasing the credibility of the brand. On the other hand, it is Investindustrial that despite lower offer from a financial point of view of Aston could propose something new and worthwhile.
