2024 marks some incredible milestones for Audi Tradition, showcasing the rich history of the iconic four rings. Imagine this: the stylish Audi 50 hits the big 5-0, the Ingolstadt Auto Union plant turns 75, and a whopping 125 years ago, August Horch set up his first company in Cologne. The anniversary lineup is a treasure trove with over 30 special moments, including a throwback to Audi models that earned their “H” number plates over 30 years ago. Let's rewind to 1994 when the Audi A8 entered the luxury scene, signalling Audi's foray into the high-end class. Crafted in Neckarsulm and unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show, this sedan was a game-changer, introducing the world to the Audi Space Frame—a sleek body entirely made of aluminium. And don't forget the iconic Avant RS2, celebrating its 30th birthday in 2024. This beauty, born from a collaboration between Audi and Porsche, set the stage for the high-performance RS models we love today. Fast forward to 1984, the year that proved to be a victorious chapter for Audi Sport. Walter Röhrl kicked off the season by clinching the Monte Carlo Rally in an Audi Quattro. Stig Blomqvist and Björn Cederberg secured the World Drivers’ title, and Audi bagged the World Manufacturers’ title. The Audi Sport Quattro, dubbed “The Short One” due to its snappy wheelbase, stole the spotlight as the most powerful production car from Germany at that time. Its 225 kW version still has us in awe!
