New Delhi: German luxury car maker Audi on Thursday reported 39 percent over growth in sales in India during January at 667 units.

The company said it had sold 480 units in the same month last year.

"Despite the current market condition, we aim to sell 8,000 cars in India in 2012 and with the new year beginning on a strong note, we are confident of achieving this target," Audi India Head Michael Perschke said in a statement.

Attributing the growth to a "strong brand pull" that the company has in the Indian market, he said: "Our focus this year will continue to be on expansion of our dealership network and introduction of an exciting product line, including the new Audi TT and the Audi Q3 later this year."

The luxury carmaker had ended 2011 with a record sales of 5,511 units, a jump of 84 percent over 2010.
