Founded in 1909, German premium car maker Audi offers a wide array of models, starting with the A1 and A3 superminis, progressing to the A4, the A5 Sportback, A6 and the brilliant aluminium-bodied A8 saloon. The Audi TT coupé and roadster have become icons since the former launched in 1998, while the R8 supercar, also available in Spyder form, went straight to the top of the class when it arrived in 2007.

Other sporting models include the S3, S4, RS4, S5, RS5 and RS6. The A5 coupé and cabriolet are among the most beautiful cars in their segments, while the Audi Q5 and Q7 are both highly regarded SUVs.
