August Horch’s third model bearing the Audi name, the Type C, is among his best and most mature designs. The Type C demonstrated its qualities by winning the Austrian Alpine Rally three times in succession, from 1912 to 1914. The “Alpine Winner” remained in production until 1925 and was one of the most successful Audi models of its day. The exhibit is equipped with a Coupé-Limousine body, handcrafted in the old coachbuilding tradition.
