Volkswagen to draw up plans to set up Lamborghini

Volkswagen is drawing up plans to set up Lamborghini as a more independent unit, and is discussing long-term supply deals that could make it easier to list it on the stock exchange, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

“Volkswagen is in the process of carving out Lamborghini, and to organise future supply and technology transfer deals,” one of the sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The Italian sportscar brand, which is currently a division of Audi, could be partially listed, with Volkswagen retaining a controlling stake, the first person familiar with the talks said.

There is no formal decision to divest Lamborghini, a second source said, adding that the timetable of any deal remained unclear.

“This is a first step which gives VW the option to list the unit further down the line,” the second source told Reuters.
