Fiat chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said Wednesday the takeover of Germany's Opel from US carmaker giant General Motors was "a lottery," adding that Fiat had "done everything possible" to win the bid.

"We have done what we had to do and so we have the feeling that we have done everything possible," the Fiat chairman said, Italian news agencies reported.

The Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation has also expressed an interest.
