History

The origins of Audi

The company traces its origins back to 1899 and August Horch. The first Horch automobile was audi parts produced in 1901 in Zwickau. In audi a3 1910, Horch was forced out of the company he had founded. He then started a new company in Zwickau and continued audi rs4 using the Horch brand. His former partners sued him for trademark infringement and audi q7 a German court altezza audi lamps texas shop determined that the Horch brand belonged to his former company. August Horch was forced to refrain from using audi auto repair manuel his own family name in audi repair diagrams his new car business. As the word "horch!" translates to "hark!" in German, August Horch settled on the Latin equivalent google audi automobile service problems of his name — "audi!". It is also popularly download repair guide audi believed that Audi is an acronym which stands for "Auto Union Deutschland Ingolstadt". Audi produces audi a6 over 2 million vehicles annually at its main production site in Ingolstadt. Audi has another production plant in audi s4 Neckarsulm.

Audi started with a 2612 cc (2.6 Liter) model followed by a four cylinder model with audi r8 3564 cc (3.6 L), as well audi usa as 4680 cc(4.7 L) and 5720 cc(5.7L) models. These cars were successful even in sporting audi a8 events. August Horch left the Audi company in 1920. The first six cylinder audi quattro model ,4655 cc(4.7 L) appeared in 1924. In 1928, the company was acquired by J S Rasmussen, owner of DKW, who bought audi tuning the same year the remains of the US automobile manufacturer, Rickenbacker audi canada including the manufacturing equipment for eight cylinder engines. These engines were used audi performance in Audi Zwickau and Audi Dresden models that were launched in 1929. At used audi parts the same time, six cylinder and a small four cylinder (licensed from Peugeot) models audi auto car parts were manufactured. Audi cars of that era were luxurious cars equipped with special audi autoparts bodywork.

The Auto Union era

In 1932 audi cars Audi merged with Horch, DKW and Wanderer to form the Auto Union. Before World audi repair service northern virginia War II, Auto Union used the four interlinked rings that make up audi service northern virginia the Audi badge today, representing these four brands. This badge was used, however, only on Auto Union racing cars in audi r10 that period while the member companies used their own names and emblems. The audi performance parts technological development became more and more concentrated and audi s3 some Audi models were propelled by Horch or Wanderer built engines. During World War II the audi forums Horch/Auto Union produced the Sd-Kfz 222 armored car, which was used in audi a4 accessories the German army during the war. It was powered by an 81 audi auto parts hp Horch/Auto Union V8 Engine audi logo which had a top speed of 50 miles per hour.

Another vehicle which was used in World War II to shuttle German 2007 audi tt military officials safely was known audi a2 as the Kraftfahrzeug (KFZ 11) or the Horch Type 80. The military used audi rs6 it as a light transport vehicle.

Pause and a new start

Auto Union plants were heavily bombed and partly destroyed audi s8 during World War II. After the war, Zwickau soon became audi uk part of the German Democratic Republic and Auto Union headquarters were relocated to Ingolstadt in 1949. In cars audi that period, the four interlinked rings were used together with the DKW badge. audi 90 The company focused efforts on the DKW brand, but their two-stroke engines became unpopular. In 1958, Daimler-Benz audi car finance uk acquired 88 per cent of Auto Union and the next year became its audi a4 avant sole audi s6 owner. Daimler-Benz developed a 72 hp (54 kW) four-door sedan, with a modern four stroke engine driving the front wheels. This model (later known audi dealers as the Audi 72) appeared in September 1965, "relaunching" the Audi brand. Daimler-Benz sold the audi forum company to Volkswagen in 1964; subsequently, Volkswagen's purchase 2007 audi s6 of Auto Union has led to the modernization audi accessories of VW to which it gained expertise in manufacturing water-cooled vehicles. As of December 23, audi rs3 2005, VW no longer places previously produced aircooled powerplants into production vehicles.

Audi 60 (1968 — 1972)

In 1969, Audi merged with NSU, based in Neckarsulm near Stuttgart. In the audi a5 1950s NSU had been the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles but had moved on new audi tt to audi allroad produce small cars like the NSU Prinz (the TT and TTS versions are still popular as vintage race cars). NSU then audi engines focused on new rotary engines according to the ideas of Felix Wankel. In 1967, the audi wheels new NSU Ro 80 was a space-age car well audi 5000 ahead of its time in technical details audi a4 negative toe in such as aerodynamics, light weight, and safety, but teething problems with the rotary engines put audi a4 performance an end to the independence of NSU. Presently several lines of Audi cars are produced audi car parts in Neckarsulm.

The mid-sized car that NSU had been audi diesel working on, the K70, was intended to slot between the rear-engined Prinz models and the futuristic Ro 80. However, Volkswagen took the K70 2007 audi a4 for its own range, spelling audi a3 sportback the end of NSU as a separate brand.

The modern era of Audi

Audi Quattro
Audi TT

The first audi tt coupe Audi of the modern era was the Audi audi 100 100 of 1968. This was soon joined by the Audi 80/Fox (which formed the basis audi 80 wheel rim for the 1973 Volkswagen Passat) in 1972 and the Audi 50 (later, rebadged as the audi diesels Volkswagen Polo) in 1974.

The Audi image at this time audi a4 repair was a conservative one, and so, a proposal from chassis engineer Jorg Bensinger was accepted to develop the four-wheel drive technology in Volkswagen's audi racing Iltis military vehicle for an Audi performance car and rally racing audi rs2 car. The performance car was named the "Quattro," a turbocharged coupé which was also audi wallpaper the first large-scale production vehicle to feature full-time feux audi all-wheel drive through a center differential (not counting the earlier Jensen FF, produced in small jantes audi numbers). Commonly referred to as the "Ur-Quattro" (the "Ur-" prefix is a German augmentative used, audi a3 tuning in this case, to mean "original" and is also applied audi suv to the first generation of Audi's S4 and S6 audi used cars sport sedans, as in "UrS4" and "UrS6"), few of these vehicles were produced (all hand-built by a 2003 audi a4 single team) but the model was a great success in rallying. Prominent wins proved the viability of all-wheel drive 2006 audi a4 avant racecars, and the Audi audi dealer name became associated with advances in automotive technology,

In 1986, as the Passat-based Audi 80 was beginning to develop a used audi kind of "grandfather's car" image, the type 89 audi a4 performance parts was introduced. This completely new development sold extremely well. However, its audi coupe modern and dynamic exterior belied the low performance of its base engine, and its base package was quite spartan (even vw audi obd2 code reader scanner the passenger-side mirror was an option.) In 1987, Audi put audi a4 2.0t fsi multitronic and s-line forward a new and very elegant Audi 90, which had a much superior set of standard features. In the audi cabriolet window repair early nineties, sales began to slump for the audi car stereo Audi 80 series, and some audi for sale basic construction problems started to surface.

This decline in sales was not helped in the audi myspace background USA by a 60 Minutes report which purported to show that Audi automobiles suffered from "unintended acceleration". The 60 Minutes report was based audi s4 rubber floor mats on customer reports of acceleration when the brake 2007 audi pedal was pushed. Independent investigators concluded that this 2007 audi a6 was most likely due to a close placement of the accelerator and brake pedals (unlike American cars), and the inability, audi 80 90 rim wheel when not paying attention, to distinguish between the two. (In race cars, when audi tools manually downshifting under heavy braking, the accelerator has to be used in order to match revs used cars audi properly, so 1996 audi a6 both pedals have to be close to each other to be operated by the right foot at once, toes on the brake, heels on audi a6 reviews the gas.). This audi auction site did not become an issue in Europe, possibly due to more widespread experience among European drivers with manual audi dealer santa clarita transmissions.

60 Minutes ignored this fact and rigged 2001 audi s4 a car to perform in an uncontrolled manner citation needed]. The report immediately crushed Audi sales, audi 2.7t performance parts and Audi audi 5000s renamed the affected model (The 5000 became the 100/200 in 1989, as it was elsewhere). Audi had contemplated withdrawing from the American audi a4 2.0t fsi s-line limited edition market until sales began to recover in the audi a4 hid mid-1990s. The turning point for Audi was the sale of the new A4 in 1996, and with the audi dealerships release of the A4/6/8 series, which was developed together with audi q7 lease VW and other sister brands audi rsq (so called "platforms").

Currently, Audi's sales are growing strongly in Europe, and the company is audi tt uk still renowned for having among the best build quality of any mainstream auto audi tuners manufacturer citation needed]. 2004 marked the 11th straight increase in sales, selling 779,441 vehicles worldwide. audi w12 Record figures were recorded from 21 new audi q5 suv out of about 50 major sales markets. The largest sales increases came from Eastern Europe (+19.3%), Africa (+17.2%) and phares audi the Middle East (+58.5%) citation needed]. In March of 2005, Audi is building its audi a4 reviews first two dealerships in India following its high increase in sales in audi a4 transmission fluid change the region.

Audi has recently started offering a computerised control system for its cars called MMI (MultiMedia audi camp Interface). This comes amid criticism of BMW's iDrive control, essentially audi world a rotating control knob designed to control new audi cars radio, satellite navigation, tv, heating and car controls with a screen.

The MMI system is said to be much better, as it has a 1999 audi a6 quattro maintenance manuals mass of buttons around a central knob, taking one to shortcuts audi 80 parts like Radio, Nav, audi a4 rubber floor mats TV, Phone, Car, etc. The screen, either colour or monochrome, is mounted on the upright dashboard, and audi a4 rubber floor tray on the A6 and A8, the controls are mounted horizontally. However, MMI is also available on the Audi A3 and audi en las palmas A4, in place of the stereo system, with relocated heater controls.

Auto racing

Audi has competed in audi q7 v6 lease (and sometimes dominated) numerous forms of auto racing. Audi's rich tradition audi solar sunroof in motorsport began with the Auto Union in the 1930s. In the 1990s Audi dominated cars audi a6 the Touring and Super Touring categories of motor racing after success in circuit new audi a6 racing Stateside.

Rallying

In 1980 Audi released the Quattro, an all wheel drive rtx 18 wheel rim toyota honda nissan dodge audi turbocharged car that went on to win rallies and races worldwide. It is considered used audi 80 90 rim wheel one of the most significant rally cars of all time because it used audis was one of the first to take advantage of the then-recently changed rules which allowed the use of all-wheel-drive volkswagon audi tt beetle golf jetta fan control unit in competition racing. Many critics doubted the 2001 audi a6 suspension noises viability of all-wheel-drive racers, thinking them to be too heavy and complex, yet the Quattro was an instant 2007 audi s4 success, winning its first rally on its first outing. It aftermarket parts audi won competition after competition for the next two years.

In 1984 Audi launched the "Sport Quattro" car which dominated races in audi a2 head gasket Monte Carlo and Sweden with Audi taking all audi a3 cars podium finishes but succumbed to problems further audi a4 2002 black tail lights into World Rally Championship contention. After another season mired in mediocre finishes, Walter Röhrl audi a4 floor mat rubber oem finished the season in his Sport Quattro S1 and helped place Audi second in the manufacturer's points. audi a6 center console cupholder Audi also received rally honors in the Hong Kong to Beijing rally in that same year. Michèle Mouton, the audi cabriolet clockspring first female WRC driver to audi car show win a round of the World Rally Championship and a driver for Audi, took the Sport Quattro S1, now simply called audi chip the S1 and raced in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. The climb audi coupe window repair race pits audi custom wheels a driver and car to drive up a 4,302 meter high mountain in Colorado and in 1985, Michèle Mouton set a new record of 11:25.39 audi diagnostic program and being the first woman to set a audi financial services Pikes Peak record. In 1986, Audi formally left international rally racing following an accident in Portugal audi s4 oem rubber floor mats involving driver Joaquim Santos in his Ford RS200. Santos swerved to avoid hitting audi side mirror spectators in the road, and left the track audi tt lease into the crowd of spectators on the side, killing three and injuring 30. Bobby Unser used an Audi in that jon audis same year to claim a new record for the speed sensor plug audi Pikes Peak Hill Climb at 11:09.22.

Motorsports in the new audi suv the USA

In 1987, Walter Röhrl claimed the title for Audi setting a new used audi a8 Pikes Peak record of 10:47.85 in his Audi S1 which he retired from the used cars audi tt mercedes bmw z3 england WRC two years earlier. The Audi S1 employed Audi's time-tested 5-cylinder turbo charged engine and generated 2000 audi tt over 600 hp (447 kW). The engine was mated to a 6-speed gearbox 2001 audi a4 and ran on Audi's famous all-wheel drive system. All of Audi's top drivers drove this beast, audi 1995 spare parts Hannu Mikkola, Stig Blomqvist, Walter Röhrl and the female driver, Michèle Mouton. The Audi S1 enjoys audi a3 ipod install a 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 2.3 s. This Audi S1 started the audi a4 cabriolet S-series of cars audi a4 cars for Audi which now represents an increased level of sports options and quality in the audi apparell Audi line-up.

As Audi moved away from rallying and into circuit racing, they chose to move first into audi car America with the Trans-Am in 1988.

In 1989, Audi moved to IMSA audi car radio GTO with the 90, however as they avoided the two major endurance events (Daytona and Sebring) despite winning on a audi cheap tires regular audi new suv basis, they would lose out on the title.

Touring cars

In 1990, having completed their objective to market audi rs4 wallpaper cars in the United States, Audi returned to Europe turning first to the DTM series audi spoilers with the Audi V8, then in 1993, being unwilling audi stereo receiver to build cars for the new formula, they turned their attention to the fast growing Supertouring series, which audi tdi took place nationally, first in audi transmission trouble the French Supertourisme and Italian Superturismo. In the following year, Audi would switched to the audi warning lights German Super Tourenwagen (known as STW) and then to BTCC (British cars audi tt Touring Car Championship) the year after that.

The FIA, having difficulty regulating the new audi suv Quattro system and what impact it had on the competitors, would eventually ban all four pelican blue audi wheel drive cars from competiting in 1998, by then Audi switched all their 1988 audi 90 10v camshafts works efforts to sports car racing.

By 2000, Audi would still compete 1995 audi s6 oem wheels in the US with their RS4 for the SCCA Speed World GT Challenge, through dealer/team Champion Racing competing against Corvettes, Vipers, and smaller 2001 audi a6 BMWs (where it is one of the few series to permit 4WD cars). In 2003, Champion 2002 audi rubber floor mats Racing entered an RS6. Once again, the Quattro was superior and 2006 audi a4 Champion Audi won the championship. audi 100 parts They returned in 2004 to defend their title but a newcomer, Cadillac with the new Omega Chassis CTS-V, gave them a run for audi 4000 parts their money. After four victories in a audi 5000 parts row, the Audis were sanctioned with several negative changes that deeply affected the car's audi a3 parts performance. Namely, added ballasts and Champion Audi deciding to audi a4 and body kits go with different tires and backing off the turbos boost pressure.

In 2004, after years of competing with the TT-R in the revitalised audi a4 b5 DTM series, with audi a4 problems privateer team Abt Racing/Christian Abt taking the 2002 title with Laurent Aïello, Audi returned as a full factory effort to touring car audi a6 convertible racing by entering two factory supported Joest Racing A4s.

Sports car racing

Beginning in 1999, Audi built audi fox the Audi R8 to compete in sports car racing, including the LMP900 class at the 24 hours of Le Mans. The audi murphy factory supported Joest Racing team won at Le Mans three times in a row audi ostschweiz (2000 — 2002), as well as winning every race audi rs2 turbo problems in the American Le Mans Series in its first year. Audi audi tt rubber floor tray also sold the car to customer teams such as Champion Racing. audi v8 In 2003, two Bentley Speed 8s, with engines designed by Audi and driven by Joest drivers loaned to audi windshield replacement the fellow VW company, competed in the GTP class and finished new audi rs4 the race in the top two positions, while the Champion Racing R8 finished third overall and first projector headlights audi in the LMP900 class. wheels for audi a4 Audi returned to the winner's circle at the 2004 race, with the top three finishers all driving R8s: Audi Sport Japan Team aat audi fuel injector Goh finished first, Audi Sport UK Veloqx second, and audi 1.8t maintenance schedule Champion Racing third.

At the 2005 24 Hours of Le audi 2.0 performance Mans, Champion Racing entered two R8s along with an R8 from audi 2.0t engine performance the Audi PlayStation Team Oreca. The R8s (which were built to old LMP900 regulations) received a more narrow air inlet audi a1 restrictor, cutting power, and an additional 50 kg of weight audi a4 parts catalog compared to the newer LMP1 chassis. On average, the R8s were about audi a6 4f and tuning 2-3 seconds off pace compared to the Pescarolo-Judd. But with a team of excellent drivers and experience, both Champion R8s audi a6 head gasket were able to take first and third audi a6 lower door rubber trim replacement while the ORECA team took fourth. The Champion team audi avant a4 was also the first American team to win Le Mans since the Gulf Ford GT's in 1967. This also ends the long era audi bose radio wiring harness of the R8;, however, audi car finance its replacement for 2006, called the Audi R10, was unveiled on December 13, 2005. the R10 audi car finance us employs many new features, including a twin-turbocharged diesel engine. Its first race was the 2006 12 Hours of audi convertible Sebring as a race-test for the 2006 24 Hours of Le Mans, which audi dealers in state college pa it later went on to win. Audi has been on the forefront of motorsports, claiming a audi factory parts historic audi le mans win in the first ever diesel sports car at 12 Hours of Sebring. Audi has achieved the title as the most audi lease dominant motor sport power since the start audi rings of the 21st Century, continuing its long and storied motor sport heritage.

Technology

Audi produces 100% galvanized vehicles to prevent corrosion. Along with other audi rs precautionary measures, the thus audi rubber floor liner achieved full-body zinc coating has proved to be very effective in preventing rust and corrosion audi rubber floor mats perforation. The body's resulting durability even surpassed Audi's own expectations, causing the manufacturer to extend its original audi station wagon 10-year warranty against corrosion perforation audi tt luggage rack to currently 12 years. An all-aluminium car was brought forward by audi tt pics Audi, and in 1994 the Audi A8 was launched, which introduced aluminum space frame technology. golf audi en canarias Audi introduced a new series of vehicles in the mid-nineties and continues to pursue leading-edge technology and high importer of audi cars performance.

The all-aluminum concept was extended to the company's new sub-compact, the Audi A2 which was seattle audi launched in 2001, although this model was withdrawn from production late in 2005 as uk audi car finance the costs of producing an all-aluminium small 1993 audi 100s owners manual car proved too high for many buyers looking for a small semi-luxurious car. The aluminium body has proved better suited 1999 audi a6 quattro to larger executive models such as the large A8 saloon.

In all 2002 green audi quattro its post Volkswagen-era models, Audi has firmly refused to adopt the traditional rear wheel drive 2003 audi a4 3.0 overheating problems layout favoured 2006 audi a3 for sale by its two arch rivals Mercedes-Benz and BMW, favouring either front wheel drive or all wheel drive. To achieve this, Audi has usually audi 100 heated seats engineered its cars with a longitudinally mounted engine audi 2.7 tuning chip mounted in an "overhung" position over the front wheels - the so-called "U-drive" audi 4000 for sale layout. While this allows for equal length driveshafts (therefore combatting torque steer), and the easy adoption of all-wheel drive, it goes audi 5000 diesel oil pump against audi a4 1.8t transmission control module the ideal 50/50 weight distribution. For this reason, most still believed that BMW still have the edge over Audi in terms audi a4 b8 of dynamic prowess, until audi a4 interior the arrival of the super-fast RS4 saloon late in 2005. The car has outsold BMW's M-division-badged cars and Mercedes-Benz's AMG models, its two biggest audi a4 quattro battery rivals in the performance arena. The car offers a 4.2 litre V8 engine audi a6 aftermarket parts with 414bhp, enough to propel the car audi a6 discount tire and rim packages to 62mph in under five seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of audi a6 rubber floor tray 155mph.

In the 1970s, some vehicle manufacturers including Audi (and Subaru) designed their audi a6 tire change own all wheel drive systems in passenger vehicles. In the 1980s, audi a8 program to start car all-wheel drive systems in cars became a fad, and other manufacturers like Porsche and Mercedes-Benz offered audi clothing all-wheel drive systems in their cars to audi commercial compete in the marketplace. Unfortunately, the all-wheel drive system in the Mercedes-Benz vehicles were riddled with problems right from audi compressor the design sheet. The system also was not popular in Porsche vehicles because audi concept owners wanted the traditional performance of the rear wheel drive they audi concept cars got used to in older Porsches. Although Porsche and Mercedes-Benz offer all-wheel-drive systems in some cars and trucks today, neither manufacturer audi lltis is as well-known for audi performance chips all-wheel-drive technology as is Audi. Today, after over 25 years of class-leading technology and engineering, the name audi replacement part quattro is an identifiable symbol audi rs4 vs porsche and trademark that shows would-be competitors the level of quality they have to achieve in order to attempt to audi rs6 saloon quattro head gasket compete with Audi. Unfortunately, Audi have recently applied audi s4 custom floor mats the quattro badge to models such as the A3 and TT which do not actually use the quattro four-wheel drive system, audi s8 decals but VW's Synchro modified front wheel drive audi service pittsburgh pa systems.

In the 1980s, Audi was the champion of the inline 5 cylinder, 2.1/2.2 L engine audi suspension as a longer lasting alternative to more traditional 6 cylinder engines. This engine was used audi tt for sale not only in production cars but also in their race cars. The 2.1L inline 5 cylinder engine audi tt performance was used as a base audi tt quattro for the rally cars in the 1980s, providing well over 400 horsepower (298kW) after modification. Before 1990, colorado audi parts dealers there were engines produced with a displacement between 2.0L and 2.3L. This range david audis of engine capacity was a good combination of good fuel economy (which was on how to tilt the radiator audi a6 the mind of every motorist in the 1980s) and, of course, a good amount of power.

Through the early import performance parts audi 1990s, Audi began to move more towards locate audi diagnostic connector the position of being a real competitor in its target market against Mercedes-Benz and BMW. This new audi a3 began with the release of the Audi V8 in 1990. It site map for audi features was essentially a new engine fitted to the Audi 100/200, but with noticeable used audi a6 bodywork differences. Most obvious was the new grille that was now incorporated used audi cars in the bonnet.

By 1991, Audi had the 4 cylinder Audi 80, when will 2007 audi a8 deliver to usa the 5 cylinder Audi 90 and Audi 100, the turbocharged Audi 200 and the Audi V8. There was also a coupe 1995 audi s6 version 1998 audi bose radio code reset instructions of the 80/90 with both 4 and 5 cylinder engines.

Although the five cylinder engine was a successful and very robust powerplant, it was 2000 green audi still a little too different 2001 audi a4 avant 1.8t quattro sport wagon for the target market. With the introduction of an all-new Audi 100 in 1992, Audi introduced a 2.8L V6 2006 audi engine. This engine was also fitted to a face-lifted Audi 80 (all 80 and 90 models were audi 1992 s4 performance parts now badged 80 except for the USA), giving this model audi 5000 quattro transmission repair a choice of 4, 5 audi a2 dog guard and 6 cylinder engines, in sedan, coupe and cabriolet body styles.

The 5 cylinder was soon audi a3 dog guard dropped as a major engine choice; however, a turbocharged 230hp (169kW) version remained. The engine, initially fitted to the audi a3 performance parts 200 quattro 20V of 1991, was a derivative of audi a3 se the engine fitted to the Sport Quattro. It was fitted to the Audi Coupe and named the S2 and audi a4 aftermarket parts also to the Audi 100 body, and named the S4. These two audi a4 body kit models were the beginning of the mass-produced S series of performance cars.
