    BMW: BMW may invest billions of crowns into a testing centre
for self-driving cars in the Czech Republic, the paper said
citing unnamed sources and an interview with Finance Minister
Ivan Pilny, who just mentioned that talks with the carmaker were
under way, but declined further comment.
    Neither BMW nor the Czech state's investment arm,
Czechinvest, were willing to comment on the contract.
