Audi AG is headquartered in Ingolstadt, Germany and has been a wholly-owned (99.55%) subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group (Volkswagen AG) since 1964. Volkswagen Group re-launched the
Audi brand with the 1965 introduction of the Audi 60 range. Shortly thereafter the name was acquired as part of Volkswagen's purchase of the Auto Union assets from former owner, Daimler-Benz.
The company name is based on the surname of the founder August Horch, the name itself an English cognate with the English word "hark", meaning listen — which when translated into Latin, becomes Audi.
The Audi 10/22 hp Type A (16 kW) Sport-Phaeton, became the
Audi produced in 1910, followed by it's successor Type B 10/28PS during the same year. Audi began with a 2,612 cc inline-four motor model Type A, succeeded by a 3,564 cc version, and in addition, a 4,680 cc and 5,720 cc models. These autos were a success even in sporting events. The first six-cylinder model, the Type M, 4,655 cc was produced in 1924.
August Horch left Audiwerke in 1920 for a position at the German ministry of transport, yet he was still involved with Audi as
a board of trustees member. During September 1921, Audi was the first German auto producer to build a production auto, the Audi Type K, with left-hand drive. Subsequently left-hand drive spread and became dominate in the 1920s since it gave a superior view of approaching traffic, making passing safer.
In the mid-to-late 1990s, Audi presented new advances including the utilization of aluminum construction. Delivered from 1999 through 2005, the
Audi A2 was a super mini from the future., conceived from the Al2 idea, with numerous elements that recovered consumer confidence, such as the aluminum space frame, which was a first in production auto design. In the A2 Audi additionally extended their TDI innovation using economical three-cylinder engines. The A2 was amazingly aerodynamic and was designed using a wind tunnel. The Audi A2 was chastised for its high cost and was never truly a sales success yet it planted Audi as a cutting-edge producer. The model, a Mercedes-Benz A-Class contender, sold generally well in Europe. Nonetheless, the A2 was discontinued in 2005 and Audi chose not to deliver an immediate replacement.
The next major model change occurred in 1995 when the Audi A4 took the place of the Audi 80. A new classification plan was applied to the Audi 100 which became the Audi A6 (with a minor facelift). This additionally implied the S4 turned into the S6 and another S4 was presented in the A4 body. The S2 subsequently was discontinued. The Audi Cabriolet proceeded on (in light of the Audi 80 platform) until 1999, picking up the engine upgrades en route. A new A3 hatchback version (sharing the Volkswagen Golf Mk4's platform) was announced in 1996, and the radical Audi TT coupe and roadster were debuted in 1998 in based upon similar underpinnings.
The available engines all through the range were a 1.4 L, 1.6 L along with a 1.8 L four-cylinder, 1.8 L four-cylinder turbo charged, 2.6 L and 2.8 L V6, 2.2 L turbo five-cylinder plus the 4.2 L V8 engine. In 1998, the V6s were supplanted by updated 2.4 L and 2.8 L 30V V6s, with marked power improvement along with torque and smoothness. Advance engines were added en route, including a new 3.7 L V8 and 6.0 L W12 engine in the A8.
Auto Union AG, Chemnitz, was an amalgamation of four German automobile manufacturers (Audi, Horch, DKW, Wanderer), founded in 1932 and established in 1936 in Chemnitz, Saxony. It is the immediate predecessor of Audi as it is known today.
Audi was created On 25 April 1910 as the Audi Automobilwerke GmbH Zwickau and (from 1915 on named the Audiwerke AG Zwickau )
After being reduced to near ruin in the aftermath of World War II, Auto Union was re-founded in Ingolstadt, Bavaria in 1949, ultimately evolving into the modern day Audi company following its takeover by Volkswagen in 1964 and later merger with NSU Motorenwerke in 1969.

Historical Audi Models (1910-1928)
Audi Type A (1910-1912)
1911 Audi Type A
The Audi Type A is an automobile which was introduced in 1910. It is considered to be the oldest vehicle under the Audi name. A total of 140 vehicles were produced. In 1911 the type A was succeeded by the Audi Type B
Audi Type B (1910-1914)
1910 Audi 10-28 HP Type B Phaeton
The Audi Type B was introduced in 1910 as a successor to the Audi Type A, there was an overall 360 of the Type B built. It used a four-cylinder, two-block inline engine with 2.6 Litres of displacement. It developed 28 hp through a four-speed countershaft gearbox and a propeller shaft, which drove the rear wheels. The car had a ladder frame and two leaf-sprung solid axles.
Audi Type C (1912-1921)
1936 Audi Type C
The Audi Type C was introduced in 1912. It became popular with the German people and Army, being brought back into production for a couple of years after the war. Its performance, handling and reliability along with rally successes greatly raised Audi's profile, and the Type C was a commercial success. 1,116 cars were produced.
It featured a four cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 3,564 cc, with a maximum output of 35 hp at 1800 rpm. The Type C had a maximum speed of 56 mph.
Audi Type D (1912-1920)
The Audi Type D was introduced in 1911. The vehicle had a four-cylinder in-line engine with 4.7 litres of displacement. It developed 45 PS over a four-speed countershaft gearbox and a propeller shaft, which drove the rear wheels. The car had a ladder frame and two leaf-sprung solid axles. The Type D was available as a four-seat touring car or four-door sedan. Until 1920, only 53 copies of the car were built.
Audi Type E (1911-1924)
1923 Audi Type E
The Audi Type E was a passenger car introduced by Audi in 1913. It was the largest pre-war car from Audi.
The vehicle had a four-cylinder two-block in-line engine with 5,699 cc of displacement. It developed over a four-speed countershaft gearbox and a propeller shaft, which drove the rear wheels. The claimed maximum output was 54 hp at 1650 or 1750 rpm, supporting a top speed of 56 mph. The foot brake operated via a mechanical linkage on the drive shaft.
Audi Type G (1914-1923)
1914 Audi Type G
The Audi Type G is a passenger car produced by Audi between 1914 and 1923. It is Audi's smallest and least powerful pre-war car.
The vehicle had a four-cylinder two-block in-line engine with 2,084 cc of displacement with which developed a maximum of 22 hp at 1900 rpm. Power was transmitted to the rear wheels through a four-speed countershaft gearbox and a steel propeller shaft. A top speed of 40 mph was claimed. The mechanical foot brake worked directly on the propeller shaft. The car had a ladder frame and two leaf-sprung solid axles. It was available as a sports two-seater.
Audi Type K (1922-1925)
1922 Audi Type K
The Audi Type K was a car introduced by Audi at the Berlin Motor Show in September 1921. Since the end of the war Audi had till now produced only cars of pre-war design, so that the Type K was the first post-war Audi design to be offered. The Type K entered production in 1922 and was withdrawn in 1925, by which time the company had commenced production, in 1924, their Type M model which can be seen as a larger replacement for the Type K. The Audi Type K was the first volume produced car in Germany to feature left-hand drive.
Audi Type M (1924-1927)
1924 Audi Type M
The Audi Type M was a large, well constructed, reliable, fast and very expensive car first presented at the Berlin Motor Show in 1923 and produced by Audi between 1924 and 1927.
The vehicle had a six-cylinder in-line engine with 4,655 cc of displacement. The engine incorporated several innovative features including overhead valves. It developed a maximum of 69 hp at 3,000 rpm. Power was transmitted to the rear wheels through a four-speed transmission. The engine had an eight-bearing crankshaft, forced lubrication with oil cooler and a thermostat-controlled water cooling. The car had two leaf-sprung solid axles and four wheel hydraulic brakes. It was the first Audi with four-wheel brakes
Historical Audi Models (1928-1940)
Audi Type R (1928-1942)
1929 Audi Typ R "Imperator" Phaeton
The Audi Type R was a large, well-constructed, reliable, fast and expensive car produced by Audi between 1928 and 1932 as a successor to the Audi Type M.
The Type R closely resembled the predecessor model, which had been perceived as too expensive. In reality the Type R was a little smaller than the Type M, its specification was less lavish and its price was lower. Nevertheless, it remained a large, expensive car produced during a period characterized by increasing austerity as the economy underwent the aftershocks from the stock market crashes and bank failures of 1929. Like its even more extravagant predecessor the Type R struggled to find customers
Audi Type SS (1929-1932)
1929 Audi Type SS
The Audi Type SS was a large, eight-cylinder-powered sedan/saloon car introduced by Audi in 1929 in succession to the Type R "Imperator".
Jørgen Skafte Rasmussen, the Danish-born entrepreneurial industrialist who had purchased Audi-Werke in 1928, had previously, in 1927, purchased the manufacturing plant of the bankrupt Detroit-based Rickenbacker business and shipped it home to Germany. He installed it in a factory he owned just outside Zschopau, near to Audi's own Zwickau plant. The plan was to build large, relatively inexpensive US-style "Rasmussen engines" for sales to other German auto-makers. The plan failed in that Rasmussen failed to secure any orders for the engines, so he instead produced a couple of models of his own which used them. The Audi Type SS (Zwickau) was one of these.
Audi Type P (1931-1932)
1931 Audi Typ P 5/30 PS Limousine
Jørgen Skafte Rasmussen who had purchased Audiwerke AG in 1928 was concerned that the Audi Zwickau plant was badly underutilized because demand for the expensive luxury cars that Audi produced was still restricted by the economic contraction that had followed the 1929 Stock-market crashes. The other company owned by Rasmussen was Zschopauer Motorenwerke with its brand DKW, which had in 1929 introduced the small rear-wheel drive DKW Typ 4=8. Zschopauer Motorenwerke was the nation's largest producer of motor-bikes, and used a motor-bike style two-stroke engine in their own small cars.
Audi Type T (1931-1942)
1931 Audi Type T
The Audi Type T was a large, 6-cylinder-powered sedan/saloon car introduced by Audi in 1931. It was in most respects a scaled-down version of the manufacturer's Type SS "Zwickau", which had appeared two years earlier. Jørgen Skafte Rasmussen, the Danish-born entrepreneurial industrialist who had purchased Audi-Werke in 1928, had previously, in 1927, purchased the manufacturing plant of the bankrupt Detroit-based Rickenbacker business and shipped it home to Germany. He installed it in a factory he owned just outside Zschopau, near to Audi's own Zwickau plant. The plan was to build large, relatively inexpensive US-style engines for sales to other German auto-makers. The plan failed in that Rasmussen failed to secure any orders for the engines, so he instead produced two models of his own which used engines produced using the Rickenbacker plant. The Audi Type T (Zwickau) was the second and smaller of these
Audi Front (1933-1938)
1934 Audi Front
Initially presented early in 1933, the Audi Front UW 220 was Europe’s first car to combine front-wheel drive with a six-cylinder engine. It remained in production for slightly under two years before being replaced by the Audi Front UW 225 featuring a larger 2.25-litre engine. The larger-engined car introduced in 1935 was built till April 1938 and continued to be listed into 1939. Between 1933 and 1938, the Front was the only Audi in volume production.
Audi 920 (1938-1940)
1938 Audi 920
The Audi 920 was introduced in 1938 by Audi to replace the Audi Front UW 225. Its engine was a shortened version of the eight-cylinder in-line engine used by sister company Horch. The car was planned to occupy a niche in the Auto Union range between the large Horch products and the middle market cars produced by Wanderer. Audi had no stand-alone production facilities at that time and the car was produced, like its predecessor, at the Horch plant.
Audi IFA8 / IFA9 (1939-1942)(1948-1955)
1939 Audi IFA F8
1949 Audi IFA F9
The DKW F8 compact front-wheel drive two-stroke engined saloon was introduced in 1939. The F8 was slightly shorter than its predecessor despite having a marginally increased wheelbase. The base model, known as the Reichsklasse, was manufactured only till 1940 but the Meisterklasse sedan continued in production until 1942. In addition to the saloons, cabriolet versions were offered.
After the war the car reappeared in 1949 as the IFA F8, from the Zwickau plant which now operated under Soviet control. The factory and operation was reorganized as a Volkseigener Betrieb (or "People Owned Enterprise") Automobilwerke Zwickau (AWZ). The F8 continued in production at Zwickau until approximately 1955: in addition to the sedan and cabriolet bodies, various additional body types available post war included a delivery van and estate variant.

Succeeding the Audi V8, and now in its fourth generation, the A8 has been offered with both front- or permanent all-wheel drive—and in short- and long-wheelbase variants. The first two generations employed the Volkswagen Group D platform, with the current generation deriving from the MLB platform. After the original model's 1994 release, Audi released the second generation in late 2002, the third in late 2009, and the fourth and current iteration in 2017.
Audi Mid Size
Audi C1/C2/C3/C4 (1968-1994)
The Audi 100 and Audi 200 are four-door, front-engine, front- or all-wheel drive full-size/executive sedans manufactured and marketed by the Audi division of the Volkswagen Group for model years 1968 through 1994 — across four generations:
(C1 1968-1976) (C4 ), with a two-door model available in the first and second generation
(C2 1976-1982) and a five-door wagon available in the third generation
(C3 1983-1991), (C4 1990-1994)
The third generation Audi 100/5000 (1984-1988) was widely noted for its advanced aerodynamic design solutions, which included pin-located, flush side windows — and achieved a drag coefficient of 0.30.
The C2 and C3 models of the Audi 100 were marketed initially in the United States as the Audi 5000 (1984-1988) and in South Africa as the Audi 500.
Audi 100 (C1, 1968–1976)
1968 Audi 100 C1
1974 Audi 100 LS
1975 Audi 100 C1
The first Audi 100, developed by Volkswagen's subsidiary Auto Union at Ingolstadt, was shown to the press as a four-door sedan on November
26, 1968. Its name originally denoting a power output of 100 PS (74 kW), the Audi 100 was the company's largest car since the revival of the Audi brand by Volkswagen in 1965. The C1 platform spawned several variants: the Audi 100 two- and four-door saloons, and the Audi 100 Coupé S, a fastback coupé, which bore a resemblance to the Aston Martin DBS released a year earlier, especially at the rear end, including details such as the louvers behind the rear side windows and the shape of the rear light clusters.
Audi 100, 200 and 5000 (C2, 1976–1982)
1976 Audi 100 C2
1979 Audi 100 GLS 5E
1980 Audi 100 GLS 5E
The restyled C2 Audi 100 was launched in 1976, with an in-line five-cylinder engine. It was initially a 100 PS (74 kW) engine offering "six-cylinder power and four-cylinder economy", and later upgraded to 136 PS (100 kW).
The Coupé was discontinued, but a five-door hatchback model, the 100 Avant, was launched in August 1977 as part of this generation. The mainstay of the range remained the four-door sedan model. A two-door sedan version was offered, primarily on the domestic market, from February 1977, but by now there was little demand for large two-door sedans and thus only a few of these two-door Audi 100 C2s were sold. At the top of the line, the Audi 200 made its appearance at the 1979 Frankfurt Show, with fuel injected five-cylinder engines in either naturally aspirated or turbocharged forms
Audi 100, 200 and 5000 (C3, 1982–1991)
1987 Audi 5000S
1988 Audi 5000 CS Turbo Quattro
1990 Audi 100
The third generation Audi 100, launched in September 1982, had an aerodynamic look, achieving a drag coefficient of 0.30 for its smoothest base model. The increased aerodynamic efficiency resulted in better fuel economy. The design was in contrast from the boxy shape of the C2. Audi innovated flush windows on the C3, a key area for aerodynamic drag that has been widely adopted by other manufacturers. The aerodynamic body gave the 100 higher top speed than other cars of similar engine size. A new technology introduced in the C3 included the procon-ten safety system.
Audi 100 (C4, 1990–1994)
1991 Audi 100 C4
1994 Audi 100 C4
Audi released the C4 (a heavily revised C3) in late 1990 in Continental Europe and 1991 in other markets, including the right-hand drive British market. The C3-platform Audi V8 continued to be sold as a separate line. The major change for the C4 was the introduction of a 2.8 L, 90-degree, SOHC 12v, V6 engine. It was later joined by a 2.6 L variant, of the same configuration as the 2.8 L unit. They are essentially the same engines offered in the 1992, B4 Audi 80. The option of quattro permanent four-wheel drive was an option across the range, and the Audi 100 quattro was available with a ZF four-speed automatic gearbox.
