Repair and service Audi cars in the eBook

Audi is a German multinational manufacturer of high quality and sports cars. The company is headquartered in Ingolstadt, Bavaria and has been part of the Volkswagen Group since 1965.

The name Audi is a play on words between the word audi (to hear or listen in Latin) and the name of the founder, August Horch (listen in German), who founded the company on July 16, 1909.

The first car from Audi Automobilwerke GmbH (abbreviated as Audi), the Audi Type A Sport-Phaeton, was produced in 1910 in Zwickau6.

Since 1911, the sports car assembly company has taken part in the Austrian Alpine Cup, a 2400 km endurance race known to be particularly difficult.

Audi won the competition for three consecutive years, in 1912, 1913 and 1914, and in fact acquired the image of an internationally recognized sports car manufacturer.

From the very beginning, the company experienced financial difficulties, which forced it to merge with three other Saxon car brands in 1932.

So Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer on June 29, 1932 & nbsp; unite under the abbreviation of four crossed metal rings in the consortium "Auto Union AG On". On this day, the Auto Union group, which retains each brand, becomes the second largest automotive group in Germany. When assigning tasks, the production of prestigious models is transferred to Audi, the guardian of this tradition.

It was during this period that the Audi Front was produced, the first car in Europe to combine a six-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive. As the luxury car market is already occupied, Auto Union has gradually begun to produce mid-range models.

Each of the brands that formed Auto Union - Horch, Audi, Wanderer and DKW - have made small contributions to the tech arena. However, when it comes to technological milestones in the history of Audi, three should be mentioned as they have influenced the current moment in the industry:

  • the location of the left rudder;
  • Quattro drive;
  • TDI engine.

In 1921, with the Audi K, the first left-hand drive car appeared (before that cars had a right-hand drive, inherited from previous horse-drawn carriages, in which the coachman sat on the right).

Quattro thrust was embodied in a seemingly simple principle: engine power must be transmitted to all four wheels. Audi engineers research and work on the Quattro all-wheel drive, and finally the Audi Quattro Sportcoupé was born at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show. First, this technology is applied in the world of competition, and success (especially in rallying) does not take long to appear - the Audi Quattro wins the World Rally Championship from 1982 to 1984.

Audi takes advantage of its system and starts offering Quattro drive versions for street cars, so in 1987 all models had at least one all-wheel drive version.

The Audi 100 is the first car to debut in 1989 with a TDI engine. Two years later, in 1991, a new engine was developed for the Audi 80 and Audi 100. It was a four-cylinder 1.9 TDI with 90 hp.

Today Audi is a high-end subsidiary and a technological showcase of the Volkswagen Group.
