At least five potential Aston Martin buyers have now whipped out their platinum cards in anticipation of taking the esteemed carmaker off Ford's hands. One London banker said, "The interesting question is whether this is just going to be a scrap between the rich men of Russia and the rich men of the Middle East." It's interesting to note the plethora of former Ford execs hoping to get a piece of Aston.

List of potential bidders after the jump.

      Ford is selling because 1. they nedd the billion or so and 2. they need to quit worrying about how cool it is to own exotic British car makers and focus on the Ford and Lincoln brands.

      if they nedd a halo brand in the future bring back the SVO division. an SVO Edge and Fusion would be hot.

      Aston-Martin is autonomous enough that it won't require much legal wrangling.

      What doesn't make sense to me is why FoMoCo would give up a such a profitable and powerful brand. I am still skeptical of the sale, but money is money.
