(Corrects name in second paragraph - to Bernhard, from Bernhardt)
BERLIN, July 3 German automaker Volkswagen on Thursday denied rumours that it was planning to bid for U.S. truck maker Paccar next year.
A note by Singapore-based Bernstein Research analyst Max Warburton published earlier on Thursday quoted Daimler Trucks Chief Wolfgang Bernhard as saying that VW was preparing such a takeover bid for 2015, citing "serious, multiple sources".
A spokesman at VW's Wolfsburg-based headquarters "clearly" denied the rumours. (Reporting by Andreas Cremer; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
