Saudis in Audi? No, try Brits in Audis. It doesn't rhyme, but it's real, since a lot of people in the island nation like to buy four-ringed cars, so many in fact that they recorded record sales in September.
In total, Audi UK delivered 25,829 cars last month alone. This is not only a record for that particular month, but also the best result in 49 years of company history in this market.

These have also contributed to a new, all-time-high sales total of 114,261 cars for the year-to-date to the end of September.

We wanted to put that into perspective, Jaguar Land Rover only managed 10,769 vehicles registered in September, despite being a local producer. In 2012, Audi sold 1,455,100 globally, which basically means that roughly 1 in 10 Audis are sold in Britain.

To blame for these numbers is a 47-strong model range, based on 21 separate model silhouettes. Probably the most popular in Britain is the A3, which now has a very wide range that includes a sedan, Sportback, Convertible and 3-door.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
