AUDI Imperator


Recommended Posts



The AUDI Imperator, also known as the AUDI Type R, will take part in the most reknowned automotive beauty competition in the United States of America – the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance.


This first 8-Cylinder AUDI in the history of the company will debut August 21, 2005 in California.


The AUDI Imperator comes fresh from ist recent presentation in Lorbeeren. A few weeks ago the 1929 AUDI also won the Concours D’Elegance of Cranbrook in Michigan. The vehicle has ist work cut out for it, following last year’s "Best of Show“ at Pebble Beach won by an Auto Union vehicle – a rare 1938 Horch 853A Erdmann and Rossi Sport Cabriolet.


The AUDI Imperator is rarer still – there is only one in the world. In 2003, the car was restored by AUDI Tradition.


The Nearly 17-foot long vehicle was discovered near the end of the 1990’s in Saxonia and acquired by AUDI Tradition.


Only 145 Imperators were built and sold over the years, with 100-hp being produced by its 5-liter engine.


The four rings of the AUDI brand logo symbolize the marques AUDI, DKW, Horch and Wanderer, which were joined together to form Auto Union. Auto Union and NSU, which merged in 1969, shaped the development of the automobile considerably. In 1985, AUDI NSU Auto Union AG changed its name to AUDI AG. AUDI Tradition maintains and presents the history of Auto Union and NSU GmbH as part of the widely distributed history of AUDI. AUDI’s Museum Mobile, located in the AUDI forum Ingolstadt, is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily.
