    Audi, you don’t shine without darkness
    The Audi logo is made up of four hoops embraced together which are the unit of four original companies that gave rise to Auto Union: Audi, Horch, Wanderer and DKW.
    Audi is a premium car brand, specializing in luxury cars. Today it competes primarily with its German rivals Mercedes and BMW, forming the main trinomial of luxury cars in the world, in which all of them also belong to the main car-producing country in Europe as is Germany.
    In addition Audi also has a long history in sport. The tradition of Auto Union and Audi with competition dates back to the beginning of the last century. While DKW and NSU reaped numerous victories in two-wheeled races, they rose to become some of the best Grand Prix cars during the 1930s-40s. The reason for this nickname was precisely the absence of paint on their steel and aluminium bodies, something that allowed them to have that silver color that was wandering around the world.
    The rallies were the perfect setting for Audi not only to continue with the development of its quattro four-wheel drive, but also served as the perfect promotion of it, beating the Group 4 and Group B rear-wheel drive that competed in the discipline. Its superiority was more than evident, especially in conditions of dirt, ice and snow, something that forced other manufacturers such as Lancia, Peugeot or Ford to adapt their models and pass them to the four-wheel drive. Despite the fact that the Quattro S1 E2 is one of the most remembered Gr.B’s, its record only shows the victory at the 1986 San Remo.
