Audi 50, 1974

The last of the Audi models to be developed under Ludwig Kraus before his retirement. It was the first German small car that Nucchio Bertone was involved with and its timeless design makes it attractive even today. Traffic and colour psychologists in the 1970s highlighted the accident-prevention effects of signal colours. The Audi 50 in Communal Orange was safe and at the same time it captured the spirit of the age.
