Looking for a Christmas present for the lady? How about a Nürburg Ring?

No kidding. It’s for sale. “After local politicians loaded it with debt equating to around 50 years’ worth of profit, the famed and feared track went into administration and is now looking for a new owner,” says Reuters.

Assets include the track and an amusement park with a rollercoaster that is about to open soon – after a 4 year delay. The Ring won’t come cheap. It “typically has an annual revenue of 50-60 million euros and underlying profits of 6-8 million, making it more profitable than many carmakers.”

Speaking of carmakers, you will likely be bidding against some of Germany’s “deep-pocketed carmakers,” the wire says.
