We love Bertone, the company behind wonderful things like the Bertone Jet, the Aston Martin Rapide wagon that looks hotter than a significant number of supermodels. Sadly, Bertone is in trouble right now, the company recently laid off 165 employees, and is reportedly entering bankruptcy. The company tried to turn a profit by opening a new division that specialized in custom cars for consumers, but this has apparently not worked out as planned.

Don't lose all hope though, seven Italian companies and one Turkish company have shown interest in buying the struggling design house.
