According to a recent report, Audi has been granted the first rights to bid on Ducati.

Ducati has a partnership with AMG, but that could soon be changing as a new report is indicating the company has struck an exclusivity deal with Audi.

According to Car Magazine, the deal will give Audi the first chance to bid on the debt-ridden motorcycle manufacturer. Accountants are reportedly doing their due diligence and everything could be finalized in April.

Sources suggest Audi could pay €50-100 ($65.6-131.1) million for Ducati and absorb approximately €800 million ($1 billion) in debt.
