Audi was a modest car company back then. It was a combination of Auto Union, NSU, DKW, and AWZ. They made small cars until going under in the 1960s. They differentiated from MB and BMW by being fuel efficient, including 2 stoke engines, rotary engines, etc. VW bought them out and resurrected under the new name Audi, around 1969, with the S90. Later it became even larger and had more luxury then the VW models, like the 1000. Only then did they try to compete with MB and BMW.

Audi used to be 4 separate companies: Auto union, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. The merging together in the 1930's then brought along the 4 rings. Which is why they interlock. The badge remains unchanged to this day. Auto Union got sold to Daimler Benz in the 1950's but then was resold to Volkswagen in the 1960's. Audi is now known for it's long history of innovation; more so than other brands. Whilst BMW were the first manufacturers to push rear real drive, Audi created the first production cars with permanent four wheel drive systems and the famous Quattro rally car was a huge success in the 1980's. In the 1920's, they made the first production car with left hand drive.
