Our future was written in the past

This year Audi celebrates 20 years of partnership with Gran Premio Nuvolari. A real record for longevity for sports sponsorships.
The one between the four rings brand and the Gran Premio is ​​a bond with deep roots: the car that brought the legendary Tazio Nuvolari to the victory at Donington Park Circuit, the Gran Premio d‘Italia and Yugoslavia was an Auto Union, the historical Audi name.
The engineers of that time designed the Type D - V12, a racing car equipped with a compressor with two stages, with an output of 485 hp. It was 1939 and even then it was clear that the advanced technology could make a difference.
Since then, Audi has never stopped pursuing even more ambitious goals, to achieve excellence. One example is the legendary four-wheel drive, which over the years has reached surprising levels of technological evolution, as well as the successes achieved in racing with Audi Sport brand.
A long time has passed since it all began, but the spirit of Audi remained the same: that of someone who does not flinch in the face of a challenge, facing it with class and extraordinary performance. The same with which competed Tazio Nuvolari.
