Audi is one of Germany’s
oldest-established automobile manufacturers. Since 1932 the
Audi emblem has been the ‘four rings’, which stand for its
amalgamation with DKW, Horch and Wanderer to form Auto Union
AG in Chemnitz, which then adopted this badge. It supplied the
widest range of passenger vehicles that German industry could
offer in the 1930s – from motorcycle to luxury saloon.
True performance is
never the result of a single component. It’s the combination
of elements—engine design, drivetrain, suspension, gearing,
vehicle rigidity and weight—that elevates a ride to
greatness. At Audi, we understand this. That’s why so many
of our performance innovations come via the race track. FSI®
direct injection, the S tronic direct shift gearbox, the
all-aluminum Audi Space Frame®, and, of course, legendary
quattro® all-wheel drive—all play a role in delivering a
ride that is exhilarating in its dynamism and control.
From the very beginning,
advanced technology has been at the very heart of the Audi
DNA. In practice, this means the relentless pursuit of new and
better solutions to the automotive challenges of an
ever-changing world. From quattro® all-wheel-drive to FSI®
direct fuel injection, Audi's Truth In Engineering means
safer, more efficient, and more brilliantly satisfying cars to
