Brief History

Audi was founded in July 1909 by August Horch, who had already given his name to a previous auto-making venture. As a result, Horch opted to use the Latin form of his name, Audi, for the new company. The official name of the company was Audi Automobile Works, and luxury vehicles were its primary focus from the beginning. Through the years, the brand has produced some incredible offerings that have included amazing innovations. The Quattro, which debuted in 1980, wowed the world with its all-wheel-drive system. The elegant cabin of the 5000, which debuted in 1983, set a new standard as well. Today, the automaker is headquartered in Ingolstadt, Germany, and is almost entirely owned by Volkswagen.
