The Audi in the 60’s – A few people say that the 60’s was where the cutting edge Audi was conceived. What’s more, for sure it was a time of extraordinary change. Volkswagen dominated, NSU united, and in particular it saw the finish of two-stroke motors.

In the sixties the celebrated brand was as yet known as ‘Vehicle Union AG’ (this was not rearranged to Audi AG until 1985).

One explanation behind this was on the grounds that Auto Union AG were reluctant to quit producing two-stroke motors which had given the organization a decent notoriety before the war.

This put Auto Union AG in risk, thus they frantically built up another four-stroke, four-barrel motor. The organization was in this way spared by Volkswagen who purchased a somewhat high lump of the business in 1965.

An explanation for Volkswagen’s choice was to approach the Auto Union’s new plant in Ingolstadt which was expected to help the creation of the Beetle.
