Rumours in Italy that Bertone has found a buyer, Seat opens order books for Mii by Mango, Skoda Citigo Monte Carlo on sale

Rumours are circulating in Italy that a buyer has been found for Bertone. A spokesman for the company told Autocar: "There are voices that there is somebody. Yes, there are rumours". The company entered bankruptcy proceedings in March, with the Italian courts given until the end of April to try and find a buyer.

Order books have opened for Seat's special-edition Mii by Mango, which is priced from £10,995. Created in conjunction with the Spanish fashion label, the model features bespoke badging and paintwork alongside new alloy wheels and an upgraded interior.

Skoda has revealed pricing for its Citigo Monte Carlo special edition. On sale from £10,590, the model features new black exteror accents and bodywork, while the interior has been upgraded with a sports steering wheel and new upholstery.

Renault-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn has been elected as President of the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association. He takes over from former PSA chairman Philippe Varin and is tasked with driving innovation in the European car industry.

I really like the Mii Mango and with the upholstery up-grade, the leather finish and black wheels, it does look good. Even the price is quite keen, considering the cost of all these extras when added to a Mii Sport.
