FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) _ Luxury car maker Audi A-G says its
sales and profit soared during the first half of the year.
The unit of Volkswagen A-G says the results put it on track to a
12th consecutive year of record results.
The company says it earned nearly 927 (m) million dollars U-S in
the first six months of 2007.
That's a nearly 67 per cent gain over what it earned in the same
period last year.
Sales rose by more than 12 per cent to a record 23.75 (b) billion
dollars on solid gains in China, the U-S and Russia.
Audi C-E-O Rupert Stadler says the company is on track to meet,
and in some cases, exceed its sales goals for the year.
