Fiat has made a non-binding offer to buy struggling Italian contract manufacturer Carrozzeria Bertone.
Fiat’s offer is one of five for the struggling coachbuilder.
The other bidders include Italian entrepreneur Gianmario Rossignolo, Chinese car maker FAW Group Corp and an unnamed Spanish consortium.
The deadline to make bids for Bertone is 16 July.
Italian bankruptcy court administrators plan to name the winning bidder by the end of the month.
