Audi 8/22 hp Type G Phaeton, 1923

The Type G existed before the First World War. In 1914 it was presented as a “small”, inexpensive Audi with a 22 hp four-cylinder engine. It was the first Audi to have a block engine rather than cylinders cast in pairs. However, the war put an end to production after just a few months. Production of the slightly modified Type G was recommenced after the war, this time with a slightly more powerful engine and a striking pointed radiator. The model on display – a Phaeton with two rows of seats – is the only Type G known to be in existence.
