Audi (first era)
This logo shows Audi in a union with 3 other German car brands that formed Auto Union: DKW, Horch and Wanderer. As time went by, the logo evolved, yet has since always continued with the four rings, symbolizing the strength of the union.
Audi (second era)
1969–1995 (badge logo)
The distinctive wordmark was removed and replaced with a left-aligned wordmark in the new Audi Type corporate typeface.
The wordmark was removed altogether and the rings are now rendered in plain black, rather than in a metallic 3D effect. The Audi wordmark no longer appears with the four rings, but instead with the company slogan; Vorsprung durch Technik.
