Audi is a German automobile company that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. Originally seen as a conservative car maker, Audi began to change its image with the introduction of their “Quattro” four-wheel drive performance technology. With the intro of the Quattro they found great success in Rally Racing and became known as innovators in car technology. Since then, Audi has gone on to produce the successful A4 and A6 that are renowned for their luxury, make, and performance rivaling that of Mercedes Benz and BMW.
In Oct 2006 Audi announced that it had sold 684,700 vehicles worldwide in the first nine months of this year, an increase of 8.4 percent compared with the same period of the previous year and the best nine months in the company's history.
Two vehicles join the Audi lineup for 2008: the all-new luxury sports coupe, the A5, and the all-new sports car, the R8. Audi’s high performance super sports sedan, the 420-horsepower RS4, is offered in a new convertible version. The redesigned TT is available now as a coupe, and dimensions are slightly larger than the last generation.
