This is the fully cladded type C with just under 404 kW (550 HP), with the Daimler-Benz and Auto Union each other to dispute the world speed record. In one of these attempts, Bernd Rosemeyer will loose his life in a crash on the highway Frankfurt - Darmstadt at about 440 km/h in early 1938.


Although "only" equipped with 8 in-line cylinders, 4.9 liters of displacement and 88 kW (120 HP), this is one of the most expensive ever existing Horch because painstakingly made by hand by the company Gläser in Dresden.

This is then a representative of the car brand Wanderer here as a very fast convertible. Of course you can get out of two liters of displacement not 63 kW (85 HP) at the time. Since it requires at this time already the aid of a compressor and advice from the newly formed company of Ferdinand Porsche.

Since 1932, Audi has combined with Horch, DKW and Wanderer to Auto-Union therefore, the four rings still on the Audi. Here now a stylish DKW convertible with only half power, distributed on two two-stroke cylinder.


A very lightweight car by plastic body over a traditional frame. With a favorable wind resistance the two-stroke engine achieved with 900 cc distributed on three cylinder 29 kW (40 HP) impressive 140 km/h. Named after the circuit in Italy ...


A roadster of the postwar Auto Union. The three-cylinder engine with 980 cc displacement provides 40 kW (55 HP) and brings the car to 140 km/h.



It is the namesake for the Audi TT. The NSU Prinz TT begins with 40 kW (55 HP) out of air-cooled 1100 cc and prospers under qualified tuner hands up to over 96 kW (130 HP).

After all, the three-cylinder engine is now strengthened to 1.2 liters and 44 kW (60 HP), good for at least 135 km/h. Otherwise, the car has many virtues, and although the display block is just almost the only place on the vehicle, which revels in chrome which can again be found even in the Audi 80.

Shown is the four-door version, which appeared a year after the two-door 1964. A new, self-supporting body with (for the time) a lot of space and later never attainable visibility. Passenger compartment and chassis will survive well into the Audi-80-era, only the two-stroke engine does not, thank God.

As early as 1958 the Auto Union goes into the possession of Daimler-Benz but until 1965 new vehicles still appear with two-stroke engines. Here in the picture the last one as F 102.


The Ro 80 pictured here is from 1977, in principle, the second generation of the first big car with a rotary engine. The major teething troubles are probably eliminated, only the basic drawbacks remain.


Even the Audi 100 has the typical Audi dashboard of that time.

The Audi 100 has various importance. In 1964, the company Audi was sold from Daimler-Benz to VW. Once there, the company daughter should in no way take a leading role. Heinrich Nordhoff has the final word and still try the men in Ingolstadt, to make him palatable the secretly developed, large car.



Thus it is to see at the Frankfurt Motor Show and the coachbuilder Karmann hopes for a larger order. Unfortunately, in vain.


The mid-size sedan from Audi still has dragged along its design of the former DKW. This Audi 80 is the first to show a different design and is trendsetter not only for Audi, but also the basis for the first Volkswagen Passat.


This car here is from 1977 but actually, the Audi 50 is started together with Golf and Scirroco, in Wolfsburg, where it will also be built. One must mention, that the VW group teeters on the brink and these cars come just in time also considering the oil-price crisis.


The GTE is already since 1975. The version shown here is created after the facelift of the Audi 80 in 1976. Of this version the Golf GTI has borrowed the engine with 81 kW (110 HP) with additional oil cooler.



This is the VW Iltis, actually an Audi. It is being developed because the Bundeswehr expected replacement after 20 years DKW Munga. It competes with the Mercedes G-model and gets almost as expensive, although it has only 1.7 liters of displacement and accordingly less power. For the development of Audi the car is important because in it is the initial impetus to the permanent all-wheel.


Here the image of the probably the most extreme Quattro. Its features were said to be so amazing that e.g. the car tester Paul Frere spontaneously decides to a book project on the technique of the car. He had been told only when leaving the vehicle that he has done all of these feats on ice and snow with summer tyres.

Everyone is talking about the all-wheel of the Quattro but hardly anyone about the engine. The five-cylinder makes sense at Audi because one needs more performance, with six cylinders however the front overhang would be too large. Moreover, Ferdinand Piech has designed prior to joining Audi just a five cylinder (as diesel) for Daimler. Nice to look at the picture, the K-Jetronic.



There the Quattro has naturally contributed enormously. Unlike the Iltis it has permanent four-wheel with shiftable locks. The principle will be gradually adopted by all the competitors.

1982 is called the year of the Frenchwoman Michele Mouton because she will not only win (as the first woman in the world), a World Championship race (San Remo), but also vice-world champion.

No, not the 265 kW (360 HP) bring the Quattro to the top of many rallies, but the way in which the power is used of the five-cylinder engine.


The Audi 100 in the third generation represents a revolution in terms of aerodynamics for the time. A cW-value of 0.30 is far from self-evident, even in the luxury class.


125 kW (170 HP) this Audi 200 5T has. The turbo engine is from the first Quattro. It has thus not its all-wheel drive. Only front-wheel drive is still getting used in the upper class at the time.


The permanent all-wheel drive has arrived in the series together with a powerful engine. If you are interested in the construction with the hollow shaft, click here.



The Programmed Contraction and Tension system effectuates, that an accidental displacement of the power unit block to the rear a steel cable simultaneously ensures a forward movement of the steering column. A belt-tightening is coupled therewith. Meanwhile, similar and better dosed effects can be achieved by pyrotechnics and collapsible steering column.
