Four rings?

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by imported_RastaS4, Nov 5, 2004.

  1. What do the Audi four rings stand for? Just a question of general interest. As the sign of a bmw is a prepalor (from that movie with Sean Connery as an author that stays home).

    I believe it represents the union of 4 companies in the 1930's. Auto Union and 3 others.

    Here you go......

    Audi is one of Germany’s oldest-established automobile manufacturers. Since 1932 the Audi emblem has been the ‘four rings’, which stand for its amalgamation with DKW, Horch and Wanderer to form Auto Union AG in Chemnitz, which then adopted this badge. It supplied the widest range of passenger vehicles that German industry could offer in the 1930s – from motorcycle to luxury saloon.
