Audi Variant, 1968
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". From 1966, the Audi was also available as an estate model with the designation "Variant". This was an acknowledgement to the new masters in Wolfsburg. All Auto Union estate models since 1950 had been sold under the designation "Universal".
