Audi is a word-renowned car manufacturer based in Germany, who earned its solid reputation producing some of the world's finest high performance luxury vehicles. Audi was originally owned by Mercedes Benz's parent company Daimler-Benz and was later sold to Volkswagen in the late 1990s. The term Audi is an ode to the company's founder August Horch, whose name in German translates into the word "Audi," in Latin. Folklore has it that Horch had a falling out with his former partners and could no longer use his own name after the German Supreme court ruled that it belonged to the previous company from which he was banned.
The Co-Founder of Audi Motorcars, Mr. August Horch
Horch immediately called a meeting between what would later become the other three founding partners of Audi and they deliberated over a new name for their automobile business at one of the partner's apartment. Serendipitously, the partner who owned the apartment's son was studying Latin at the time and suggested that the partners use the Latin translation of Horch which was Audi. The new name was unanimously agreed upon and is still used to this day. It is said the silver rings adorning the famous logo represent the four different car companies that banded together to Create Audi.

Now that the partners had a name and a logo agreed upon, they could return to the business of making automobiles. The first Audicar was introduced to the world in 1910 and aptly named the Audi Type A Phaeton. Immediately following Audi's initial offering was the Audi Type B vehicle which was delivered on the same year and considered by many to be a basic replica of the Audi Type A vehicle.
Audi toyed around with smaller engines and didn't actually produce a full-sized six-cylinder engine model until fourteen years later in 1924.

August Horch eventually left his position at Audi to take a government post with the transport ministry but remained active on the Audi board of trustees. Under Horch's leadership, Audi produced the world's first left-hand drive vehicle which set the standard for European car production due to the fact that the left-hand view allowed drivers to see the road more clearly which made for safer driving.
Audi eventually went on to purchase American auto maker Rickenbacker and many of the later Audi vehicle produced during this era were built with eight-cylinder engines, with luxurious parts and custom bodywork. The models that made Audi famous during this time period were the Audi Zwickau and the Audi Dresden, both of which were discontinued after the 1920s. Soon after came the Audi Front, which was the first vehicle in Europe to use a front wheel drive engine in conjunction with six powerful cylinders which gave this car a powertrain and drive shaft that were stronger and more agile than any vehicles on the road.

The Audi factory plants were eventually turned into weapons manufacturing facilities after the onset of World War ll. During this time, Audi focused heavily on Audi Union racing cars and eventually concentrated their efforts on smaller vehicles due to the worsening global economic conditions brought on by the long war. After World War ll, Audi's manufacturing facilities were taken over by the Soviet Army and dismantled. It wasn't until 1949 that production resumed and Audi was back to making their flagship two-stroke engines.
Audi later reinvented itself in the late 1940s, thanks in part to substantial loans from the Bavarian government. The new focus of Audi was to produce 4x4 vehicles including motorbikes and passenger vehicles. Audi later found a large investor to put up the capital needed for a flagship factory in Ingolstadt Germany. Soon after large-scale production began, Mercedes Benz purchased Audi, only to give up a large portion of its interest to Volkswagen less than 10 years later. During this time, popular models being produced at the large, new Audi factory were the Audi 60, the Audi 80 and the Volkswagen Beetle.

Audi went on to develop smaller vehicles in the late 80s and early 90s such as the Audi TT, the Audi TTS and now the new Audi R Class and R8. Audi also focused on producing larger vehicles like the Audi A4 which is a sports sedan that's comparable with the BMW 3 Series or the Mercedes Benz C class.
Audi has continued to grow despite some pains along the way due to recalls and vehicle quality issued. Audi has reestablished itself as a preeminent auto maker in the new millennium and in addition to reaching record sales in the United States, Audi has grown increasingly popular as a worldwide brand, in Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
