Audi of America Reports Late February Sales Rise in Advance of Spring Season

Link to Press Release

TT Sales Growth Indicates Durable Demand for 'Shockingly Delightful' Design

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Audi of America, Inc.

announced today sales for the month of February totaling 6,152, a decrease

of 6.9% from last year's figures. Audi Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales

continued their record-setting trend; compared with last year's February

figures, CPO sales came to 3,021 units, an increase of 57%.

The combination of cold weather and cold economic reports slowed

customer purchases in the early days of the month, but dealers reported

increased traffic as the month progressed. Growing TT sales -- an increase

of 52.8% vehicles sold over last year's figures -- and record-breaking CPO

sales indicate that consumers looking for strong, "shockingly delightful"

design have Audi on their minds.

"In spite of February's slow start, customers are, in fact, shopping. I

believe that American auto buyers are looking for stand-out design and

quality engineering -- they're ready for spring and are ready to purchase.

I look forward to taking the momentum of the last week into March," said

Johan de Nysschen, Executive Vice President, Audi of America.

To date, Audi has sold 12,570 vehicles in 2008, a 3.4% decrease over

the previous year; CPO sales for 2008 total 5,613, an increase of 48% over

2007.
