Audi S6 V8, hotter version of the A6.

4WDpictures - AudiQuattro

Today's Audi A4 to A8 Quattro's and the other Audi all wheel drives are descended from Audi's rally cars of the 1980's.

The Audi Quattro shook up international rallying when it brought four wheel drive to the sport in 1981. The 1985 model (right) belongs to the Nat'l Motor Museum (UK).

History:
1899: August Horch began a car company carrying his own surname in 1899.
1910: When he left that company to start afresh at Zwickau, Germany, he "translated his last name, which means ``hark!'' or ``listen!'' into Latin, ``Audi''."
1932: Audi became part of Auto-Union, with DKW, Horch and Wanderer.
1933: Audi built front-wheel drive cars.
1949: The Soviet Union took Auto Union AG after WWII, so Auto Union GmbH was established at Ingolstadt, later becoming Audi AG.
1965: New model called `Audi' appears, and Volswagen AG acquire the company.
