The Audi brand can trace its origination all the way back 1909, when August Horch founded Horch Automobil-Werke Gmbh. (This was his second car manufacturing company; he was muscled out of the first one by a militant supervisory board.) The first Audi – a Type A Sport-Phaton – was produced in 1910 but, like the first company he started, he was forced out of his second company and once again started anew. The following company (and the three after that) all bore some permutation of the name Horch, which is German for “listen;” the Latin word for “listen” is “audi” and… well, no further explanation is needed. The four rings unique to the Audi brand represent the four companies with which Mr Horch would later band but, much like the legal woes of Mr Horch himself, the company would face an unsuccessful lawsuit brought by the Olympics commission because the rings closely resembled those of the international brand.

Audi is a wholly-owned, luxury-branded subsidiary of the Volkswagen family and it enjoys the prestige of German reliability. Audi was the first mass-market manufacturer to produce vehicles made of 100% galvanized steel, which prevents the vehicle from experiencing common forms corrosion from the elements and minimizes the cost of wear and tear. The unique combination of high-quality production materials and innovative luxury amenities (Audi was among the first to expand the role of on-board computing systems, aggressively competing with BMW for recognition in this category) places Audi in the top quartile expense category when it comes to insurance cost, as these items are not cheap to replace in the event of an accident.
