The primary task of the Wind Tunnel Centre is the development of Audi’s production vehicles. The range stretches from compact premium models, dynamic SUVs and luxury sedans all the way through to high-performance sports cars.
In line with Audi’s guiding principle “Vorsprung durch Technik”, the wind tunnel tests not only optimise economy and noise levels but also ensure a functional form. Two current examples: the dynamic design and exclusive standard of comfort offered by the Audi A8 were developed and tested using the Wind Tunnel Centre. With the aim in mind of bringing the DTM feeling to the street, the Audi A4 DTM was also a frequent visitor to the aeroacoustic wind tunnel.
