Audi AG is a German automobile manufacturer with headquarters in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, and is an almost wholly owned (99.7%) subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 1964.
Audi's German tagline is "Vorsprung durch Technik"; this is used either untranslated or in its English translation, "Advancement Through Technology". The American tagline is "Never Follow".
The Four Ring Symbol
The Audi symbol is four overlapping rings that represents the Auto Union. The Audi emblem symbolizes Audi amalgamation with DKW, Horch, Wanderer, and NSU : the first ring represents Audi, the second represents DKW, third is Horch, and the fourth and last ring Wanderer.
Audi has competed in (and sometimes dominated) numerous forms of auto racing. Audi's rich tradition in motorsport began with the Auto Union in the 1930s. In the 1990s Audi dominated the Touring and Super Touring categories of motor racing after success in circuit racing Stateside.
Audi produces 100% galvanized vehicles to prevent corrosion. Along with other precautionary measures, the thus achieved full-body zinc coating has proved to be very effective in preventing rust and corrosion perforation. The body's resulting durability even surpassed Audi's own expectations, causing the manufacturer to extend its original 10-year warranty against corrosion perforation to currently 12 years. An all-aluminium car was brought forward by Audi, and in 1994 the Audi A8 was launched, which introduced aluminum space frame technology. Audi introduced a new series of vehicles in the mid-nineties and continues to pursue leading-edge technology and high performance.
