Where did Audi start?
In 1910, straight out of Zwickau, Germany, Audi was founded by an Engineer called August Horch. The name Audi is actually the Latin translation of the founder’s last name, which is nice touch if you ask me. Although founded, it was only acquired by Volkswagen in 1960s and only gained worldwide fame in the 1980s after their UR-Quattro All-Wheel Drive System used in rallying.
Where did the Audi logo come from?
Audi was made up of four companies that merged in the 1900s; Rasmussen’s DKW, Wanderer, Horch & Jørgen Rasmussen (who was a majority shareholder), which led to the four unique rings…or were they unique? In 1995, Audi were taken to court by the Olympic Committee! The outcome? Well, you can see their logo hasn’t changed…
What about Audi now, in 2020?
'Vorsprung Durch Tecknik' means 'Advancement by technology', and that is exactly what they have done and continue to do. Being one of the first brands to launch the Virtual Cockpit, it didn’t take long for others to follow. With features like their digital air-con dials, matrix LED headlights, sweeping indicators, tied in with the stupidly suitable model range, I’d say Audi’s slogan ‘rings’ true.
