the trademark double rear wheels
this was such a beautiful design. i had a silver toy version of this as a child, and i remember staring at it in awe. i didn’t quite understand design then but i could tell this was not an ordinary car.
“auto union was a joint venture of 4 car manufacturers in germany during the great depression, which eventually came to be known as audi, as we know it today. the trademark symbol of auto union, the four overlapping rings, symbolized the four member companies represented the four marques of auto union: audi, DKW, horch and wanderer. although the company used the four ring logo, it was only used on it racing cars in that period, while the member companies used their own names and emblems. the company has evolved into present day audi as a subsidiary of VW.” more here. by uh
