Audi Towbars Fitting

0

Amongst the best-selling cars in the world, Audi began its eventful journey in Germany from its engineer August Horch and the manufacturers, DKW and Wanderer. It led to the foundation of Auto Union back in 1932 which eventually got acquired by Volkswagen from Daimler-Benz that soon started the modern era of the company. Afterwards, Volkswagen merged Auto Union together with NSU Motorenwerke back in 1969 after the introduction of the Audi F103 series in 1965, which then formed what the company is today. Nine production facilities around the world are producing vehicles branded by Audi with its headquarters standing in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Germany.

The four companies that joined together to create the Auto Union, the company’s predecessor, is represented by the four rings in the logo of Audi. Since 2007, “Truth in Engineering” became the marque’s official slogan though it has been criticised for being incongruous with their practice.

Audi, with its admission, was involved on the Volkswagen emissions testing scandal back in 2015 in which the emissions data were manipulated to pass the levels in avoiding pollution mandated by the government. Nevertheless, sales in the US increased by 16.2% in the month of September according to the marque’s reports.

Alfa Romeo Towbars Fitting

0

Founded in Milan back on 1910 as A.L.F.A, or “Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili” in Italian or Anonymous Lombard Automobile Factory in English, Alfa Romeo is an Italian car manufacturer that has established itself as one of the most famous sports cars in the world. The company came from new cars designed by Guiseppe Merosi for another company, known as Società Anonima Italiana Darracq (SAID) led by Alexandre Darracq, whose cars were deemed to be selling badly. ALFA was then founded back in 1910, with SAID being initially in its partnership. The company name was then changed to Alfa Romeo back in 1920 with the Torpedo 20-30 HP being the first car to hold the name.

The centre of every conceptualisation Alfa creates is marked on the emphasis of the performance of a car while underlining historical tradition. Directing its designers in a certain style, Alfa has always maintained a preference when it comes to constructing the bodywork of its cars in terms of the combination of lines and forms.

From Grand Prix, Formula One, to rallies, Alfa Romeo has competed in numerous competitions around the world, giving the marque its reputation as a preeminent sports car. It currently holds the top spot with the most wins of any marque in the world. Selling around 40,000 cars every year, Alfa Romeo Guiletta, is currently at the top of the marque’s sales.
