Hi Axel:

For describing cars, use

    http://purl.org/vso/ns

The name "Vehicle Sales Ontology" is a bit misleading, it is actually  
about describing cars, not car sales. the commercial part is covered  
by GoodRelations.

Example:

# Car Specification
# Make and Model: 2002 Chevrolet Camaro
# VIN: 2G1FP22G522155049
# Drivetype: RWD
# Mileage: 42000
# Stock No: 155049
# Transmission: 6-Speed Manual
# Engine: 5.7L V8 OHV 16V
# Exterior Color: red

foo:car_155049 a vso:Automobile, gr:ActualProductOrServiceInstance ; #  
it' a real car
     gr:hasManufacturer dbpedia:Chevrolet ;
