When Audi was founded in 1909, there were around 50 car brands in Germany. Three of them have survived to the present day, two of them with the same name as back then. One of these is Audi.

Audi Automobile 1909-1940 tells the story of the first three decades of this brand. Models and versions are illustrated with a wealth of detail never before seen; the growth and metamorphosis of the company, which grew out of the middle class in Zwickau, Saxony, is reconstructed on the basis of previously unexplored sources.

Audi's pioneering activities, such as the first aerodynamic body designs, the development of light-alloy engines, front-wheel drive in car production, and the introduction of left-hand drive for the first time are described in detail.

A major highlight was certainly the gruelling Österreichische Alpenfahrt, won three times in a row by the Typ C in 1912, 1913 and 1914.

It also describes Audi's journey from a medium-sized company to the DKW Group and then to Auto Union. In 1932 thus began the era of the four rings, which have remained to identify the brand today.

The book is packed with detailed and comprehensive tables on technical characteristics of the cars, production data and figures, as well as the unpublished register of all Audi cars of this period that still exist today, making it a reference work not only for Audi enthusiasts.
