When we think of luxury cars, one brand definitely pops into our minds: Audi. The reason? Pretty straightforward. Quality and style. While Audi has delivered some of the most quality-driven cars over the years, it has also managed to become a style statement of its own. Whenever someone is seen driving an Audi, the person is perceived to be a smart one who values class, comfort and quality over everything else.
Audi has launched some real crowd pleasers in the past few years, but if you had to find the top 10 launches, which would it be? Answering this is a tad bit overwhelming, isn’t it? Well, of course, it is. After all, the luxury car company has given us some of the greatest gems in the automobile industry. And in this guide, we shall look at the top 10 Audi cars of all time. So, let’s get started!
Here are the top 10 Audi cars of all time
Audi Quattro 20V
Nothing beats a classic Audi Quattro. Back in its time, which was in 1989, this Quattro was the definition of technology in the automobile industry. This was possibly the first time a car was designed by keeping the driver’s needs in focus.
With a top speed of 230km/h, which is roughly 143mph, this old vehicle can surely pick up pace within a fraction of seconds. In fact, it can go from 0- 100kmph within a matter of just 6.3 seconds which is quite impressive, considering its time. The production of this successful model continued till 1991.
Audi R8 Series
Audi R8 is yet another highly successful series launched by Audi in the year 2008 in the beginning and Audi continues to add to this series. However, here we are talking about the very famous Audi R8 Coupe 2020. The engine, the design, the technology, everything about this car is nothing but top-notch. This one can go from 0-60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds, so it is fair to say that the Audi R8 Coupe 2020 is quite a speedy ride and is definitely meant for those who put speed over everything else in a car.
The Audi TT is nothing less of a monster. This power-packed drive will let you zoop through the lanes of your town swiftly and quickly. What makes this one stand out from the clutter is its powerful and robust engine. You can go from 0 to 60 mph speed in just about 5 seconds, making it one of the best vehicles in this range. A sleek design, classy finish and features that pull the crowd’s attention are something that Audi TT owners are most fond of. Not to forget, the fuel capacity of this one is approximately 14.5 gallons, which is again sufficiently adequate.
Old is gold, and the DKW Monza truly proves it. This was one of the oldest launches made by Audi, and let’s be honest, this one was nothing but splendid for its time. While it is one of the oldest, the DKW Monza is also one of the best creations of Audi. This one, too, can go from 0 to 60mph in just 5 seconds. Look wise; the DKW Monza has quite a vintage touch to it; however, the Audi has made sure that it still looks modern and supreme in every way possible. This one is truly a luxury to have, and the owners of this model have never regretted their buying decision.
Audi R8 Le Mans Prototype
This was one specially developed and designed by Joest Racing and Audi Motorsport, keeping two important events in mind, i.e. the LMP-900 class at Le Mans and the American Le Man’s racing series. Since this one was meant to compete in racing events, speed, power and accuracy are definitely its strongest points, as they should be. This one goes from 0-62 mph in about 5.1 seconds, and its powerful engine is strong enough to produce a maximum output of approximately 520hp, making it one of the toughest in the 2020 automobile market.
Auto Union Type D
Looks and performance both are extraordinary in the case of the oh-so-awesome Auto Union Type D. While Audi is the owner and creator of this amazing vehicle, it was built with the help of Ferdinand Porsches. To provide a little back story, the Auto Union is a series of racing cars, and all of them have a different starting point, like A, B, C and, of course, D, the one we are talking about here. Auto Union Type D is the most effective and efficient one in the lot, and it continues to fascinate both- the driver and the viewers.
Audi RS6 Avant
The Audi RS6 Avant is a family car. Usually, in family cars, comfort, space, and convenience are the biggest priorities. However, this one is not limited to only these qualities. Audi continues to roar in terms of its power and speed even in this family car, and that is what makes it exceptional. If you are on a hunt for a luxury car that is highly functional, sleek and classy, so you can handle all family needs through one vehicle, then the Audi RS6 Avant should perfectly meet the brief.
1907 Horch 26/65
When talking about the best Audi cars of all time, we can’t miss out on the good, old 1907 Horch 26/25. This classic beast was one of a kind, and it was pretty much the initial stage of Audi realizing its potential in the luxury market. As a matter of fact, this was the very vehicle that gave rise to the ongoing legacy of Audi, which is to be at the top of the game when it comes to automobile technology. Audi was ahead of its time from the very beginning, and it continues to be the same even today.
2012 R18 Ultra
Here’s another one from the ever-outstanding racing world of Audi. This model challenged Audi and taught a lot about sophisticated and systematic engine design and technology. This one is easily one of the best performing drives created by Audi so far. It was tweaked not once, not twice, but several times in many different ways to make sure that the Audi 2012 R18 Ultra still had the edge despite the extensive competition that it faced at the time.
Last but not least, we have the Audi RSQ8 on this list, which is yet another wonderful creation of Audi that has a blend of classy and comfortable. This one is yet another highly functional family car and is a preferred choice among many celebrity families too. Regardless of being a family vehicle, the Audi RSQ8 is still made powerful enough to go from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. So it can be said that this drive can really pick it up in the blink of an eye.
All in all, Audi has time and again proved that it is the ultimate winner in the automobile industry, especially when it comes to aspects like design and technology. With these extraordinary cars in its bag, Audi has created a legacy of its kind in the world of automobiles, and we don’t see the legacy breaking anytime soon.
