    If it was this easy,it wouldnt be

    an Audi.

    When you were a kid, you prob-ably felt quite proud when youcompleted a model kit. We under-

    stand. At Audi, it takes countlesshours for a single Audi to go fromidea to design to roadworthy, and

    thats time we are very proud todevote. Our obsession for detail,

    commitment to premium fit and finish and passion for un-paralleled engineering go into every model. Its the kindof discipline that the word painstaking was invented to

    describe. Not to say its a choreno, assembling an Audiis a labor of love, and it shows every time you sit in one,engage the ignition and nudge the accelerator. Creating

    an Audi isnt easy, but the results help define what Audimeans to the people who drive one.

    The door of perception.

    Its said that, when one door closes,another one opens. It sounds as ifwhoever said it spent some time at

    an Audi research and developmentfacility. After all, while youll openand close the door on your Audithousands of times without think-

    ing about it, weve obsessed aboutit for you, in detail. Not just aboutthe reliability of it opening and

    closing, but on the proper weight that will make it more pleasing to close.How the locks should click when they are engaged. The optimal acousticplacement for the speaker port. There are the hinges too, of course. And

    the door itself, which we designed to t ake the brunt of side-impact colli-sions, and several dozen other safety considerations (to say nothing of thecountless other components, processors, sensors, window features andthe inner workings most people will never see). Our doors are more than

    a symbol of welcoming you into your vehicle, they are products of Audiengineering, and the very perception of Audi hinges on them as much asour hinges help support the door.

    quattro HAS MAINTAINED ITS GRIP ON OUR THINKING AND THE ROADS WE TRAVEL.

    For more than 30 years, Audi has beenfocused on quattro all-wheel drive.During that time, it has evolved intoan overarching idea of performance, a

    technological system of ratios, powerdelivery and driving dynamics work-ing seamlessly together, orchestrated

    through the drivetrain, providing powerwhere and when it is needed most. In

    many ways, this has been a three-decade drive, from the Alps to the autobahn

    and points beyond. Youve seen quattro capabilities in the way we dominatedthe World Rally Championship for years, in the grip you have in inclement weath-er, and in the variable power distribution you enjoy in good conditions.1For more

    than 30 years, and with over five million quattro systems on the road, w e havecontinued to refine the technology, developing an available rear sport differen-tial to help maximize performance and available torque vectoring to assist with

    cornering traction while helping to improve handling. Weve boldly stuck to whatworked while the world was trying to catch up, and we built on it.

    Torquevectoring_

    Byindependentlybraking theinside corner-ing wheels, torque is then transferred tothe outside cornering wheels. This intelli-gentapplicationofpower,knownastorquevectoring, is available on select quattromodelsand helpspromoteneutral handlingby calculating the drivers steering inputand desired level ofacceleration.

    To help ensure high cornering agility, theavailable sport differential uses torquevectoring, and then adds to that by me-chanicallyapplyingadditional torqueto theoutside rear cornering wheel. Through anelectrohydraulicmultiplateclutch packandgear-set,the outsiderear cornering wheelspeedisincreasedby asmuchas 10%.

    When we think ofa good idea, it sticks.

    1 When driving during cold,rainy, snowy or icy weather conditions,ensurethat your vehicleisequipped with appropriateall-season or winter tires.Even with appropriatetires,you mustalwaysdrivein a manner appropriatefor the weather,visibility and road conditions.

    ELEPHANT SKULL_

    Hownaturesolvedtheapparentconundrumofan elephantsskulldidntescapethenoticeof Heinrich Timm, the longtime lead engineer for Audi. The weight of the tusks and thegeneral size of an elephants head would seem to make it impossible for the animal toactually be able to carry it. But the design genius behind the elephants skull is to makeit lightweight yetsturdy. Its predominantly hollow design isbuffered by thin, connectivebonewalls,whichactasstrong,weight-bearingcells.Audidesignersusedthatideawhenbuilding our aluminum and steel structures.Reducing weight,yet enabling strength.

    THE ELEGANT STRUCTURE OF NATURE BECOMES A BLUEPRINT OF EFFICIENCY.

    It seems strange to say that, whilewe build strong, complex andhigh-performing machines, werenaturalists at heart. Then again, it

    might not be that unusual, seeinghow nature itself builds strong,complex and high-performingmachines as well. When we devel-

    oped the thinking behind our ultralightweight technology initiative,

    we knew that nature would serve as an inspi ration to greater structural efficiency. Takethe structure of the elephant skull pictured here. It has to be lightweight, yet capableof carrying a heavy load. Its porous, but its structure is such that it enhances its stabil-ity and strength. We do the same, for example, with aluminum. Positioned one way,

    aluminum materials can be flexible. Positioned another, they are strong and rigid, andhelp give better support. We also looked to bamboo, which is strong at the conjoinedareas (nodes), and flexible along its stem. Our designs allow for both rigidity and flex-ibility where each is most needed, and for efficiency overall. As we continue to develop

    strategies to improve the performance aspects and efficiency of our vehicles, we dontshy away from the world around us.2We boldly engage it even closer still.

    How studying elephant skulls

    makes for superior handling.
