100 years of Audi

Pete Mait

Audi celebrated their centenary on 16th July in Ingolstadt by staging two world premieres. On the opening day of the fortnight's festivities, not only was the latest A5 Sportback unveiled but Chinese star pianist Lang Lang also gave the first ever performance on the new grand piano from Audi Design. The big speech was delivered by Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel to a VIP audience of 1,800. The programme of special events continues until 30th July. The four photo galleries below provide a review of the company history as well as a glimpse into the future under the headings Motorsport, Classic, Concept and of course Quattro.
