I wonder what maserati and ferrari will do if Fiat closes down.

Fiat has its biggest losses from these two companies.

ferrari is too commercial in its approach and is the biggest financial drain on Fiat group followed by maserati.

Audi-wolkswagon group I think atleast makes some profit from lamborghini.

I agree, I think the all new Lamborghini Miura is going to be one heck of a car and compete directly with enzo and beat the crap out of it..I dont know if they will keep the production numbers limited to the tune of what ferrari did, but this 700bhp monster along with an SUV and 2+2 Espada is going to be rocking..I cant wait for th next couple of years, they are going to be fiery..
