It was iirc the merger of Auto Union,DKW,Horch and Wanderer that became Audi.

 Seems I was partially right. ;)

Got the four rings on it  :y

Yep, from the days before they invented the fifth ring(piece) that goes in the driver's seat nowadays. :y

I remember an article 10-15 years ago, maybe more, on the restoration of one of those Auto Union V16s. Balls of tungsten carbide were required for the test drive, apparently. ;D

They're driving one of these around on Antiques Road Trip this week. I really like the old thing, something different.
They've broken it  :(
