The four rings - today the world-famous trademark of the premium manufacturer Audi. But what do these rings actually mean? They are intertwined, thus representing a connection: that of the Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer companies. In order to be strong and successful in the times of crisis after the "Great Depression", they joined forces in 1932 to form Auto Union. This marked the beginning of a unique and exciting car company history, and Audi, as the only remaining brand in the union, is more attractive today than ever before.
This book explains with many contemporary pictures how the individual companies of Auto Union came together. Outstanding cars and motorbikes of the brands are shown and it is told why Audi still exists today and why the Four Rings did not become five after the merger with NSU in 1969. Arriving in the modern age, the multitude of innovations and new models of the company are presented.
