Our future was written in the past
This year, to mark the 2017 Gran Premio Nuvolari, Audi celebrates its 20-year-old partnership with this prestigious race, a record of longevity for the world of sport sponsorship.
But then, the ties between the four-ring marque and the Gran Premio Nuvolari run deep: the car in which the legendary Tazio Nuvolari won at Donington Park Race Track and in the Italian and Yugoslavian Grand Prixs was made by Auto Union, the name used by Audi in that period of its history. The engineers at the time designed theType D - V12 a 485 hp race car fitted with a two-stage compressor. That was back in 1939 and it was already clear that cutting edge technology could make the difference.
Since then, Audi has never stopped striving to reach ever more ambitious targets and achieve excellence. Examples of this are the legendary quattro traction, which has seen surprising levels of technical development over the years, and success in motorsport with the Audi Sport marque.

Many years have passed since it all began, but the spirit of Audi has remained the same: the spirit of someone who never backs out of a challenge, but tackles it with outstanding class and performance. Like Tazio Nuvolari on the race track.
