Lous Vuitton denied rumors of it buying Ford, but now Reuters is reporting that Ford could get more than £450 million ($880 million) for the Aston Martin luxury brand. Bidders including private equity firm Doughty Hanson and Simon Halabi submitted second-round offers for Aston Martin in an auction being run by investment bank UBS AG.
