Well Matt I'll admit I can't justify that. I read it somewhere and believed
it 'cos most of the major car manufacturers make losses on the cars that are
in a competitive markets, making up for those losses on sales in niche
markets because they can charge higher prices.

However don't get too excited by Audi's success in the US. The revenues from
US sales only accounted for 12.8% of group sales (source: Audi financial
report). The other figures are a whopping 32% from Germany (where sales are
seriously down), and 48.7% from the rest of Europe, which is similarly down
(except the UK that is, where interest rates are so ridiculously low that
people are borrowing like there's no tomorrow).
