Car workers today urged luxury firm Aston Martin to direct rumoured investment into developing new models and securing the workforce's future.
Union Unite made the call following mounting speculation that the car maker is about to receive a big cash injection.
Indian conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra - the world's biggest tractor maker - and Italian private equity fund Investindustrial are competing to buy part of the company.
Unite regional officer Tim Parker said the union was "seeking detailed information" about potential investment money.
"We would like any financial investment to be used for the benefit of the UK business to secure both the long-term future of Aston Martin and for our members employed there," he said.
