Audi scale model cars: a brand with enduring appeal

Audi cars are known for their luxurious yet conservative style that appeals to personal and business users alike. The brand is associated with many innovative features, such as high-beam laser headlights that vastly improve night vision, offering night-time visibility of up to half a mile.

Powerful engines are also features for which Audi is famous. With a top speed of 199 mph, the R8, for example, is capable of slipping from 0-60 mph in a little over 3 seconds and 0-100 mph in 7.1 seconds. Helping to control that power on the road was a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and high-tech ceramic brakes. DNA Collectibles Audi model cars pay homage to these cars in resin with carbon fibre panels, mirrors, nose winglets and spoilers. The laser headlights have not been forgotten; with six lights on top of the three lower lights and one large light to the side, all with large lenses. Upfront, you will notice a matte black grille and vents with a black mesh backing at the front and rear of the vehicle, and these are just a few examples of the fine detailing for which DNA Collectibles have become renowned in a relatively short space of time. The Audi range of resin model cars is available in an aesthetically pleasing choice of bright primary colours, such as classy white metallic, papaya orange, and ara blue. All would make a very welcome addition to any Audi model car collection.

Audi foundation and logo history

Audi AG is a german manufacturer of sportive and luxurious automobile owned at 99% by Volkswagen group. Today, Audi AG also owns the two prestigious sport cars brands Lamborghini en Audi Sport.

Some people would argue about the birth date of Audi... But to be fair, that's a tricky question! Is it in 1899 when August Horch created "A. Horch & Cie. Motorwagen Werke"? Or is it when Mr Horch had the idea of naming his company Audi after hearing his son using the latin expression "audiatur et altera pars"? Or is it in 1932 when "Auto Union" was created by merging Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer?... From our point of view, it is 1909 when August Horch founded August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, because the spirit of Audi really started here.

Have you ever questioned yourself about the signification of the four interlocking rings Audi logo?

We quickly mentioned it previously, but let's dive into this topic deeper. Each ring stands for one of the four automobile car manufacturer who decided to merge in 1932 to become Auto Union AG. By creating this consortium, Auto Union directly became the second largest car group after Daimler-Benz. This was a necessary decision to take for Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer to survive during the great depression period.
