Audi 100

The Audi 100 was a mid-sized automobile manufactured from 1968–1994.

The origins of the first Audi 100 have become legendary in Germany. The 100s was the first ever model to have side-mounted headlights. When Volkswagen purchased Auto Union from Mercedes Benz in 1965, they seem to have been motivated by a desperate shortage of production capacity for their ’Beetle’ model which at that time was selling faster than the cars could be produced.

The Audi 100 was shown to the press in November of 1968. Its name originally denoting a power output of 100 PS, the Audi 100 was the company's largest car since the revival of the Audi brand by Volkswagen in 1965. The C1 platform spawned several variants: the Audi 100 two- and four-door saloons, and the Audi 100 Coupe S, a stylish fastback coupe.
