is generating a
great deal of interest in the brand.
"2007 can be another great year for Audi and our customers," he said.
"We have three significant launches, including the TT Coupe and Roadster,
the R8 mid-engine sports car, and the A5 coupe. We're certainly looking to
set another record this year."
