VW prepare to defend Dakar title.Bro said :
As far as I'm aware, VW don't currently have engines in F1, F2 or Rally do they?
Its a wee bit more complicated then that, FB, in the thirties DKW, Audi, Horch and Wanderer became Auto Union which had as logo the famous four rings, basically showing the brand was made up of four companies. then Auto Union was sold to Mercedes, just after WO II methinks. Somewhere in the 1960-ies VW wanted to buy Auto Union, lots of lalala, and the first Auto Union under VW was really a Mercedes although it was sold under the Audi name. Then NSU joined Auto Union and added their pay off to the company. that was the famous "Vorsprung durch Technik" and used to this day. ther company then was called Audi NSU Auto-Union A.G. which somewhere in the 1980-ies became Audi AG. So the Audi logo is from Auto Union and the pay off from NSU.FB said:Seat are part of VW group, as are Audi, Skoda, Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti (they still own the Auto Union and NSU names but don't use them).
