Social Sciences - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / cars of soccer stars
English term or phrase: complementary
Perhaps a safer option for footballers would be to avoid paying for cars at all. Many automakers have witnessed the benefits of brand sponsorship, with Audi choosing to team up with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United. Hence Cristiano Ronaldo's {complementary} Audi R8--part of the brand's sponsorship deal with the team--which otherwise would have set him back at least $109,000.

Explanation:
在談及服務和商品的時候, complementary 通常是指不另收費的服務, 或免費贈送的商品/ 服務.

這裡的意思是指由於Audi 跟manchester united 有合作和贊助的關係, 因此cristiano ronaldo 所擁有的Audi R8 是免費的, 否則他就要花上十萬元了.

在字典上找到的解釋是這樣的:

com·ple·men·ta·ry (kmpl-mnt-r, -tr)
adj.
1. Forming or serving as a complement; completing.
2. Supplying mutual needs or offsetting mutual lacks.
3. Genetics Of or relating to a group of genes that act in concert to produce a specific phenotype.
4. Biochemistry Of or relating to the specific pairing of the purines and pyrimidines between strands of a DNA or an RNA molecule.

complementary
Adjective
1. forming a complete or balanced whole
2. forming a complement

簡單來就就是as part of a whole 的意思, 通常是指在某服務上附加的一部份. 很多字典都沒有明確的指出這樣的解釋, 但這樣的用法和意思在服務的宣傳, 特別是酒店服務上非常普遍, 例如complementary breakfast, WiFi internet access complementary.
