Caution Concerning Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this press release may involve forward-looking statements, including forward-looking statements regarding Penske Automotive Group, Inc.'s future sales potential and potential earnings outlook.  Actual results may vary materially because of risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict.  These risks and uncertainties include, among others: economic conditions generally, conditions in the credit markets and changes in interest rates, adverse conditions affecting a particular manufacturer, including the adverse impact to the vehicle and parts supply chain due to natural disasters or other disruptions that interrupt the supply of vehicles or parts to us; changes in consumer credit availability, the outcome of legal and administrative matters, and other factors over which management has limited control.  These forward-looking statements should be evaluated together with additional information about Penske Automotive's business, markets, conditions and other uncertainties, which could affect Penske Automotive's future performance.  These risks and uncertainties are addressed in Penske Automotive's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, and its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").  This press release speaks only as of its date, and Penske Automotive disclaims any duty to update the information herein.
