When an Audi zooms past, you Listen. Yes, that is what the term ‘Audi’ stands for in German, Listen, and that is the reaction it manages from the bystanders. This German car maker with over 100 years of history is known for performance, attractive designs and the build quality and is adored by automotive connoisseurs around the world.
Audi is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. It was founded by August Horch in 1909, the year he was forced out of the company he had started. The company was initially perceived as a conservative car maker, but slowly began to change its image with the introduction of their “Quattro” four-wheel drive performance technology. In 1928 Audi was bought by J.S. Rasmussen, who led the company into producing smaller cars. In 1932, Audi became part of the Auto-Union concern with DKW, Wanderer, and Horch, and its four-ring logo was born. Audi was known as a technology pioneer, way back in the 1970 and 1980. Today, Audi continues to be a popular choice in the up market, offering a variety of models such as sedans, coupes, and wagons. Audi Quattro models are perhaps most popular models produced by Audi.
Over the years, the only thing that had never changed was the change itself. Keeping with the latest technologies and innovations, Audi kept coming out with new models and versions that had something unique to offer. The Audi R8 for instance, is a sports car, originally introduced by the German automaker Audi AG in 2006. It makes use of a longitudinally mounted mid-engine, and uses Audi's 'trademark' Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system. This was exclusively designed, developed, and manufactured by Audi AG's high performance private subsidiary company, quattro GmbH.

The 2009 model is is nearly 5 inches longer and 2 inches wider than the previous model, making it even more comfortable. Audi also claims the A4 has the biggest trunk in its class.
