Audi is a German automobile manufacturer that has lately been responsible for some real FantasyCars like the Audi R8. We also really appreciate Audi for its part in the adoption of 4WD in road cars with the Quattro revolution of the 80s.
The company name is based on the surname of the founder, August Horch. "Horch", meaning "listen" in German, becomes "Audi" when translated into Latin (!). The four rings of the Audi logo each represent one of four car companies that banded together to create Audi's predecessor company, Auto Union. Audi's slogan is Vorsprung durch Technik, meaning "Advancement through Technology".
