Most successful euro company?

I believe the germans have the most successful car company(s).

But there are companies form other countries such as sweden(if not sweden, then one of the norweigen nations), france, Great Britain, i think Italy...any others?

How successful are the other car manufactuers of Europe?

Goes like this
1. Germany
2. France
3. UK
4. Sweden
5. Italy
Most of UK's and Sweden's car companys are now owned by Ford or GM.
But the brits still have TVR, Noble, Morgan, MG-Rover, Radical, Westfield, Ariel, Caterham, Bristol and Mercos.
The Swedes now only have Koenigsegg

you would be unbelivably WRONG. ever hear of the Americans? it seems not. They spank all the other european companies in terms of money made. besides, what's the criteria for "most successful"? most money made? best client base? best rearview mirrors? we need specifics, and people like Car Nirvana need to stop spewing bullshit like the above post.

He is right tho...lots of car companies in the European Area are owned by American companies...but I dont know tons about companies in Europe becuase I live in America...but from what I can tell the Germans have got probably the most...consumers... (not including Asian and American Companies...obviously)
