The 2016 Edition Audi event was held on the 9th of October. As usual I came home with (too) many pictures, and here’s the CC-selection I made.
1983 Audi 80 CL.
1991 Audi 80 with a 1.8 liter gasoline engine, a popular engine choice back then. Audi really gained momentum with this B3 generation of the 80, introduced in 1986. Modern, very well built, excellent rust proofing. And above all, a commercial success.
1999 Audi A8 2.8-5V Exclusive Automatic. An F-segment sedan. The Oberklasse, in German.
1985 Audi 80 CC.
1983 Audi Coupé (B2) GT 5E with a 130 hp 2,144 cc inline-5.
1986 Audi 200 2.2 Turbo.
1995 Audi Coupé (B3) 2.6 E.
2010 Audi A6 2.0 TFSI.
2002 Audi RS6 Avant. Quattro all-wheel drive, 450 hp from a 4.2 liter Biturbo V8. Whoopee.
2011 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI. The A1, introduced in 2010, is Audi’s MINI competitor.
1977 Audi 80 LS automatic, powered by a 1.6 liter engine.
2009 Audi A5 3.0 TDI.
1998 Audi A4 1.9 TDI. It just keeps on rolling, rolling and rolling.
1972 Audi 100 Coupé S.
Born a classic – zero doubt. The 1994-1996 Audi RS2 Avant, an Audi & Porsche joint-project, the mother of all Audi RS models. Quattro, naturally, and a 315 hp turbocharged 2.2 liter inline-5 engine. Just 2,891 of these were built. The RS2 above, registered in April 1995, is tuned to 380 hp.
1983 Ur-Quattro, imported from the US.
1976 Audi 80 LS.
With period-correct exterior and interior colors.
1972 Audi 100 Coupé S.
Wonderful, this 1970 Audi 100 S. The S has a 90 hp 1,760 cc engine.
And this here is the first Audi model after the Second World War. The 1965 Audi F103 originated from the last DKW model, the 1964-1966 DKW F102. Pictured a splendid 1970 Audi F103 Super 90 2-door sedan.
2005 Audi S4 Avant. Quattro all-wheel drive, 344 hp from a naturally aspirated 4.2 liter V8. Whoopee.
1993 Audi 80 with a 2 liter gasoline engine.
2005 Audi A4 Quattro DTM Edition with a 220 hp 2.0 TFSI engine. The DTM is the German touring car championship, which Audi won in 2004 with the A4 DTM.
1982 Audi Coupé (B2) GT 5S. Of course with an inline-5 engine.
2011 Audi A1 1.2 TFSI.
2003 Audi A4 Avant 1.8 T. That’s a red T, because 190 hp.
2015 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, a plug-in-hybrid with a 1.4 TFSI engine.
A more conventional 2014 Audi A3 sedan 1.8 TFSI.
In 1969 NSU, a German manufacturer of cars and motorcycles, merged with Auto Union. The new company’s name was Audi NSU Auto Union. Note that Volkswagen fully owned Auto Union since 1966. Above a 1969 NSU TT, also called an NSU 1200 TT. It has a 65 hp (factory tuned, that is) 1,177 cc 4-cylinder rear engine.
And then there was this, a 1936 Horch 830 BL Convertible with a V8.
Audi’s logo dates back to 1932, when Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer formed Auto Union. Hence the four rings. August Horch founded Horch in 1904 and Audi in 1909, so this seems to be the most appropriate image to end the Audi tour.
