A 15-year-old and a 19-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Both remain in custody as cops continue to investigate.
Early enquiries by Greater Manchester Police suggest that the victim may have been involved in an altercation with the Audi’s occupants moments before the collision.
GMP Superintendent Arif Nawaz said: “First and foremost, our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends who are understandably devastated and we immediately launched an investigation to get the answers they rightly deserve.
“At this stage, we believe the man may have been involved in an altercation with the occupants of the Audi on foot moments before the collision occurred.
“A number of lines of enquiry have been followed up already overnight which has then led to the arrest of two males in Lancashire on suspicion of murder.
“A cordon remains in place and officers are at the scene doing CCTV checks, taking statements and gathering as much evidence as possible so there may be delays on the roads in the area.
“We would ask that anyone who may have seen anything, or anyone who may have seen the black Audi before or after the collision, should get in touch as the smallest bit of information could assist with our investigation.”
Anyone with dashcam footage around the area at the time is also asked to get in touch with police.
