The newly-established investor said on Wednesday its proposed acquisition “would deliver attractive value to all shareholders and … would clearly be a key strategic benefit to the wider Volkswagen Group”.
Volkswagen said on Tuesday that Lamborghini was not for sale, in response to a report that Quantum Group had, together with London-based Centricus Asset Management, bid 7.5 billion euros ($9.2 billion) to buy Lamborghini.
Quantum Group founding partner Rea Stark is also co-founder of Piech Automobile with Toni Piech, the son of former Volkswagen Chairman Ferdinand Piech, according to its website.
“The intention of the currently valid bid is to transform and strengthen the Lamborghini brand,” Quantum Group said.
“By consistently implementing new clean powertrain technologies and a groundbreaking user experience, Lamborghini would become a spearhead of innovation consistent with the future needs of customers.”
