“The two-stroke road to success”

  • DKW founder Jörgen Skafte Rasmussen would have been 125 on 30 July
  • Large special exhibition in the Audi museum mobile

“The DKW brand is not only an important part of the history of AUDI AG as we know it today. Without DKW, Audi perhaps wouldn’t even exist anymore.” Thomas Frank, Head of Audi Tradition is referring to the difficult years after the Second World War when Auto Union attempted a new start in Ingolstadt following its dissolution in Saxony. It was the DKW motorcycles and cars with their two-stroke engines that helped the company back on its feet. Not least for this reason, Audi Tradition is paying tribute to the founder of DKW Jörgen Skafte Rasmussen, who would have celebrated his 125th birthday on 30 July, with a special exhibition in the Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt: “The two-stroke road to success” (Im Zweitakt zum Erfolg) from 3 July to 23 September 2003.
