The history of Audi
In 1899, August Horch started the Horch company in Cologne. Although Horch left the firm in 1909, he left a permanent presence: Audi is the latin translation of Horch (meaning “to listen”).In 1932 the company merged with three others - DKW, Horch and Wanderer - to form the Auto Union Company. This is where the logo of four, linked rings - representing the four companies - first appeared.In 1958, the company traded as VEB sachsenring Automobilwerke and its most famous product was the Trabant car, which was manufactured in Zwickau until 1991. However, on the other side of the Iron Curtain, in the Federal Republic of Germany, the company was reactivated under its old name in the city of Ingolstadt.
From 1964 onward, Audi has belonged to the Volkswagen Group. In 1968, the company approved designs for the Audi 100 car.
Today, Audi cars are manufactured in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm in Germany, Györ in Hungary and Sao Jose dos Campos in Brazil. Apart from Audi, the group has owned Seat and Lamborghini since 200.
Accolade has made many contributions to the automotive industry, but it’s most famous is surely the Quattro drive system - this is a permanent drive system used in sports-focused cars since 1980.
Audi also created the FSI engine, which is very popular today and common in many VW vehicles. It runs on petrol and utilises a direct injection system.Furthermore, Audi cars are often known for their luxury and the Ingolstadt group works alongside the Danish company Bang & Olufsen to install high-end audio systems in these vehicles.

The Audi Q7, on the other hand, is typically fitted with Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport tyres.
