US car manufacturer Daimler may be in line to purchase a 30% stake in MV Agusta.  According to German publication ‘Boersen-Zeitung’, the Castiglioni family are looking to offload up to 30% of the Italian company and Daimler had, allegedly, been in contact previously about acquiring a minority share.

Such a deal could give MV access to Daimler’s R&D facilities and financial/technical support, allowing them to compete on a more level playing field with Ducati (themselves owned by car company Volkswagen/Audi).
