Audi – An Odd Start Turned into Many German Sport Luxury Vehicle

Audi, a German sport luxury brand, has not only helped in shaping consumer tastes but also in influencing the entire European touring market.For over 100 years being on the business, the Audi brand has been as good as producing high quality, reliable and well engineered vehicles.

Despite all of the difficulties that smashed the company’s plans before, Audi was able to stand and overcome it all and is now producing more cars that are famous globally. On November 14, 1899, August Horch established the company A. Horch & Cie in the Ehrenfield district of Cologne and began manufacturing cars in 1901.

As the demand for these models increased, Horch has decided to expand its production and move into a larger manufacturing facility where they began to build a more powerful model. Horch was forced to leave the company and established a new one from where he began to sell cars under the Audi moniker.

While the German court barred Horch from using his family name for the company, he met with his business friends to discuss the matter.His friend’s son, who was studying Latin then, suggested the word audi, which is the Latin translation of horch or hark. Even though he was not able to use his family name, the Latinized version of the same won out. Moreover, this name is what brought him to the top now.Amidst a strong competition in the world of car making, the modern Audi company began to take shape.

Undoubtedly, the four rings logo of the company well represented the union of four distinct German automotive manufacturers under the sponsorship of Audi. What you are thinking is correct because there is no doubt the Horch company was absorbed by Audi to make up the union of four rings. While August Horch was able to see that big day, he also saw how his company was dismantled after the end of the Second World War.

Following war reparations, the company’s entire assets were expropriated without compensation and Audi was completely deleted from the commercial registry on August 17, 1984.After a year, Audi came back on the scene producing a delivery van and a motorcycle with the help of the state loans and Marshall plan assistance. In 1958, Daimler-Benz took an 87 percent holding in the Auto Union company following a strong growth throughout the 1950s. And in 1964, Volkswagen acquired a 50 percent holding in the business, which included the new factory in Ingolstadt and the trademark rights of the Auto Union.

The progress of Audi’s success continued up to this date, which many considers as a historical automotive excellence. Fresh models were made, in which some have been sold as part of the Volkswagen line for that time.Auto shocked the whole world of automotive in 1980 when it released the very first Quattro sports car, a vehicle with full time all wheel drive and a turbocharged engine. The popularity of Audi began to propel to the top of the race car world after Quattro won race after race. As a matter of fact, this popularity has also been the reason why Quattro was banned from some races because of allegedly unfair technological advantage.

In 1988, the German automaker released its first premium model Audi V8, alongside its other luxury models produced all throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Audi V8, which has a 3.6L 32-valve engine, also featured a four speed electronically controlled automatic transmission and a full time all wheel drive. In a bid for automotive supremacy, this particular model was made completely different from previous models of Audi to set a collision against the two other German luxury brands – Mercedes and BMW. This bid has continued to expand as Audi tries to compete with all of the top luxury brands in the world. In addition, new innovations like Audi Space Frame all-aluminum body are among the highlights of a brand that cannot be settled for second best. Moreover, Audi has a model from sedans to sports coupes to an all new SUV, which can definitely compete with its chief competitors like Lexus, Mercedes, Cadillac, Infiniti and BMW.

That hark sound you hear represents both the name of the company and its popularity that has gone far more distance in a sea of capable premium models.It is without a doubt that Audi has been too strong over the years, knowing how it struggled to stand up and continue its thrust forward for an automotive supremacy.
