Noted for their well-crafted interior treatments, as well as their wealth of modern personal technology features, contemporary Audi automobiles comfortably blend luxury and high performance to create a uniquely distinctive driving experience.
Meanwhile, Audi’s history goes back to the very early days of the automobile.
The company’s founder, August Horch, started A. Horch & Company in November of 1899, some 13 years after Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler built the first automobiles. Ultimately joining with three other companies to create the entity known today as Audi, Horch’s company was responsible for creating some of the most powerful racing cars of the 1930s. It is from this heritage Audi’s performance philosophy is derived.
Renowned for innovation; the first Audi A8 luxury sedan featured an all aluminum body known as the Audi Space Frame—making it the lightest luxury car in its class back in 1997. Building upon that success, Audi’s current sports cars, the TT and the R8 also use aluminum space frames. Well-known today for combining exceptional luxury with exciting sporting attributes, Audi’s success with all-wheel drive has forced every other luxury manufacturer to also offer a version of the drivetrain.
