The naming and branding of Audi AG is one of the more interesting stories in automobile history. Audi began not as one company, but as four, the first of which was A. Horch & Cle. August Horch, a former production manager for Karl Benz, established the company in 1899. Just ten years later he would be forced out of his own company and attempt to start the Horch Automobil-Werke GmbH. Unfortunately, he lost the lawsuit to use his own name in the new company. Talk about being kicked while you’re down.

After losing his legal battle, Horch took the Latin translation of his name to form Audiwerke GmbH, the beginning of the company we know today. The iconic ‘four-ring’ emblem signifies Audiwerke and the three other companies that joined to form Audi: Auto Union, NSU, and DKW. Audi became the first European manufacturer to offer left-hand drive vehicles. Volkswagen has owned Audi since 1964.
