In 1965 Auto Union GmbH was a subsidiary of Daimler Benz when it was bought by Volkswagen, initially to broaden VW’s production range and engine choice. It wasn’t until 1985 that Audi AG was formed, and this was the beginning of Audi as we know it today.

One of the men credited with the development of the brand into the high quality, performance linked image which it represents today was the grandson of Dr. Ferry Porsche, namely Dr. Ferdinand Piech. He had a brilliant insight into the industry on top of a near genius engineering pedigree (he designed the Porsche 911), and amongst other things helped develop the 4-wheel drive Audi Quattro, and all aluminium Audi A8.

Today Audi sits comfortably alongside the very top echelon of motor manufacturers with its range of cars still possessing a track bred pedigree.

We still see the ‘family members’ of the original Audi Quattro in Audi’s four-wheel drive models, but more recent track success has been at the Le Mans 24 Hour race which Audi has completely dominated for many recent years. Their motor sport involvement currently is heavily into electric and hybrid powered race cars.

Indeed, investment in this futuristic technology has been massive recently, with In particular, Audi working closely with a Chinese company which integrates solar cells into panoramic glass roofs for upcoming new Audi electric vehicles. They are also working with their sister company Porsche hoping to develop platforms for future electric vehicles and aim to have a third of their total manufacturing production electric by the year 2025.
