Audi’s archive of automobiles as an illustrated book: under the title “insights”, Audi Tradition’s new book, published by Delius Klasing Verlag, invites you to take an impressive journey through more than a century of exciting automotive history. For the publication, Berlin-based photographer Stefan Warter spent several days at the depots where AUDI AG’s historical vehicle collection is housed. The result? Over 360 high quality images of prestigious cars, with commentary from renowned Audi historian, Ralf Friese. Warter and Friese will present the latest Audi Tradition Edition title and sign copies on request at the Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt starting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, and at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm starting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25. Please register in advance; admission is free.
Audi’s illustrious history lends the vehicle collection a scope encompassing several brands, including Auto Union, DKW, Horch, Wanderer, and NSU. Since December 15, 2000, the Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt, has provided a representative cross section of the company’s history with selected exhibits. In addition, a permanent exhibition at the Audi Forum Neckarsulm, using the two- and four-wheel models produced by NSU and Audi as an example, demonstrates the local history; however, due to space constraints, only a fraction of AUDI AG’s historical vehicle collection can be shown in both exhibitions. The new book “insights” gives an impression of what is in the Audi Tradition depots, which are not open to the public.
The photographer Stefan Warter and the Audi historian Ralf Friese will present the lushly illustrated Audi Tradition Edition album at the Audi museum mobile in Ingolstadt on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, and at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm on Wednesday, January 25. Registration for both events can be completed by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0841/89-91544. Both events begin at 6:30 p.m., the doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the registration deadline is January 16.
