Red Audi Convertible
Audi was founded by August Horch in 1910, and the company manufactured cars until 1939. The first car, the Audi Type B, was designed for the Austrian Alpine Trials and easily won without a penalty point. The Audi Type C won in both 1914 and 1915.
In 1928 Audi was bought by J.S. Rasmussen, who led the company into producing smaller cars made of bought-in components. In 1932, Audi became part of the Auto-Union concern with DKW, Wanderer, and Horch, and its four-ring logo was born.
Auto-Union stopped using the Audi brand in 1939, and it was not used again until 1965, when Volkswagen became the majority shareholder and introduced the 1700. As more and more Audis were introduced, the make became VW's upmarket brand. Audi was known as a technology pioneer, introducing turbocharging, four-wheel drive, and the five-cylinder engine in the 1970s and 1980s.
Today, Audi continues to be a popular choice in the upmarket, with the A2, A3, A4, A6, and A8 models available in sedans, coupes, and wagons. The TT is Audi's sportscar.
