Audi’s roots can be traced back to 1899 with August Horch. He created his first car in 1901 in Zwickau, however, he was forced from his own company in 1909. The started a new car manufacturing company in Zwickau still using his own name Horch. The bad news for Horch is that he was taken to court and sued by his former partners for trademark infringement by using his own name to manufacture automobiles. After court, he was not allowed to use his name for his new car company.
Horch held a meeting with Franz Fikentshcer in order to come up with a new name for his company. Franz’s son was present, studying Latin in a corner of the room. He suggested using the name Audi with an explanation that Horch in German translates to Hark which translates to Audi in Latin. This was accepted excitedly from everyone present at the meeting, thus the beginning of the Audi tradition.
The first Audi car manufactured was the 2612 cc four cylinder model. Other models included 3564 cc model, 4680 cc and 5720 cc models. These cars were mainly used in sporting events. In 1920, August Horch left his company. In 1924, the first six cylinder model, 4655 cc was seen coming off the assembly line. Jorgen Rasmussen who also owne DKW purchased Audi in 1924.
In 1932 the Auto Union was formed with Audi, Horch, DKW, and the Wanderer. During World War I and II, the Auto Union created such vehicles as engines, the Sd-Kfz 222 armored car and the Kraftfahrzeug.
Like many German auto manufacturers during World War II, the Auto Union was hit quite hard by bombs and were pretty much destroyed. The Auto Union was broken up and remaned VEB Automobilwerk Zwickau which moved to Ingolstadt and began producing cars under the DKW brand.
In 1958 Daimler-Benz purchased 87% of the Auto Union and in 1959 acquired 100%. In 1964, Volkswagen purchased the factory in Ingolstadt and all the Auto Union brands.
Today, the Audi is known as Audi NSU Auto Union AG. Volkswagen introduced the Audi on its own in 1970 to the United States. The first Audi under this production was the Audi 100 of 1968, in 1972 the Audi 80/Fox, and in 1974 the Audi 50.
