Audi

Audi was born in 1909 when August Horch translated his last name into Latin, which is Audi. The badge today symbolises the four companies that merged in 1932 to create the German automotive company. There are currently 15 models available in a number of variations with the A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8 and Q5 and all popular Audi Q7. The Audi R8 is the brand's halo car.
