Re: Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

You can indeed consider this side of the problem. But personnaly, I consider Saab as Swedish, Chrysler group as American and Bugatti as French (historically).

Re: Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

Cds : in fact, you (and some people) consider the capital of the company. And indeed, you can consider Jag as an American make, Jeep as German, Nissan as French, RollsRoyce as German, etc;
But personnaly, I prefer considering the automaker historically.

Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

ahhh but usualy the cut off to owning is 51% of the company so that way you own more than anyone elce put together.

Re: Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

Indeed, you're right. But in this case, Renault is the main shareholder in the Nissan Company. The current CEO of Nissan (Carlos Gohsn) worked by Renault and will be the new CEO of Renault/Nissan before 2008. They could buy 9% more, but they didn't want to do it. They may buy this percentage before 2010.

Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

In Japan, owning 1/3 of a company gives you "controlling interest" and veto power. So you don't need 50.1% to "own" or "control" a company. GM had this with Isuzu (but not currently), Ford has this with Mazda, DaimlerChrysler has this with Mitsubishi.

Re: What is the nationality of Bugatti ?

Look at the license plate!(ha-ha-ha) I think 80% of the people on A.F. would identify with the Volkswagen-owned V-16 grand touring car currently built. One of the finest luxury and racing cars in world history were built by the French firm in Alsace-Lorraine, primarily in the 1910s through 1930s. Try to buy either one today and you better have serious money and just not care how much they cost.
