Audi Tradition at the 2004 Techno Classica
“Audi: Vorsprung durch Technik over the Years” is the motto of Audi Tradition’s presentation at this year’s Techno Classica exhibition, to be held in Essen from April 1 – 4, 2004. At this 16th “Oldtimer” show, the company and the historic Audi brand club will have a total of 1,400 square metres of stand space at their disposal in Hall 7. 400 sq. m more than in previous years. Sharing the stand this year for the first time is the new August Horch Museum from Zwickau, which was opened in September 2004 during the events held under the heading of “A Century of Automobile Manufacturing in the Chemnitz-Zwickau region”. Adjacent to this display is a presentation by the Audi subsidiary Lamborghini.
The following Audi cars will be on display:
For collectors of automotive rarities, Audi Tradition is exhibiting at the Techno Classica a series of newly developed lifestyle products and exclusive scale models of cars produced by the traditional Audi, DKW, Horch, Wanderer, Auto Union and NSU brands.
With support from Audi Tradition, seven historic one-make clubs have joined forces with the Audi Club International to present their own stands at the exhibition: they are the German Audi 100 Coupé S Club, Audi 80 GT/GTE Club, Audi High Compression Engine Club, Auto Union Veterans Club (AUVC), German NSU Wankel Spider Club, German NSU Ro 80 Club and NSU IG Oberhausen.
The four rings of the Audi badge symbolise the brands Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer, which were later combined under the umbrella of Auto Union. Auto Union and NSU, which merged in 1969, made many significant contributions towards the development of the car. AUDI AG was formed from Audi NSU Auto Union AG in 1985. Together with the two traditional companies Auto Union GmbH and NSU GmbH, Audi Tradition nurtures and presents the deep and diverse history of Audi. The Audi museum mobile at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
