Audi Motorsport

 Audi's commitment to motorsport is much more than simple marketing: The success of AUDI AG in motorsport was repeatedly connected with ground breaking developments which later went on to establish themselves in production. The best examples of this are quattro® drive, which revolutionised the rallying scene at the start of the 1980s, and TFSI-Technology which first saw action at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2001 and which took five consecutive wins at the classic French endurance race. Meanwhile, the combination of turbo-charging and direct-injection (TFSI) can also be found equipping Audi's sporting production models just as quattro® drive.
From the legendary days of the Auto Union Grand Prix of the 1930s to a series of consecutive victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Audi Motorsport Team is committed to nothing short of first place.
