The first post-war Audi emerged in 1965 as a cross between the DKW F 102 and a 4-stroke engine developed for military purposes by Mercedes and brought into series production by Auto Union. The Auto Union Audi was presented to the public at the 1965 International Motor Show, initially under the simple model designation "Audi".
With the expansion of the model range, the different models were designated Audi 60, Audi 72, Audi 75, Audi 80 and Audi Super 90 according to their engine power. In the first three years of production, over 80,000 units of the original Audi (72) were sold. The resurrection of the brand that had been lost in Saxony in 1945 was complete.
