Audi celebrates 30 years of Quattro

Audi is celebrating another two major milestones this year, just one year after its big 100th birthday celebrations. The first milestone is the 30th birthday of quattro, a name that humbled Audi’s rally rivals when it was first unleshed. Several events are lined up to commemorate and pay tribute to the quattro brand. These include a special exhibition at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt and another exhibition of four Audi quattro models of outstanding interest at the Techno Classica in Essen which starts on April 7.

The company will also be putting on a epic display at the Grand Prix Historique in Monaco between May 1 and 2. There spectators will be able to see an Auto Union Type C from 1936 and an Auto Union Type D with a twin-supercharger engine from 1939. Other celebratory events include participation at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July and taking part in various classic rallies.

Audi’s second reason to celebrate is the 125th anniversary of the Wanderer brand. Wanderer made cars and motor cycles until the start of WWII and is represented in one of the four rings on the famous Audi badge along with Audi itself, Horch and DKW.
