Two Audi anniversaries at the Techno Classica
- Audi introduced its Audi V8 model 25 years ago, its historic associate company Horch built its first car with a V8 engine 80 years ago
- More than 180,000 visitors expected at the world’s largest classic car fair
Audi Tradition is celebrating not one but two anniversaries at the Techno Classica in Essen (April 10 to 14). In Hall 7 of the world’s largest classic car fair, the brand with the four-ring emblem is displaying examples from the history of its V8 engines. 80 years have elapsed since Audi’s associate company Horch exhibited the new 830 model at the Berlin Motor Show, powered by that company’s first V8 engine. 25 years later the Audi V8 went into production and represented a milestone in Audi’s history – access to the premium segment of the market.
