Audi is a German luxury car company that is a top competitor against Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Audi is apart of the Volkswagen Group and is one of the top manufacturers within the group. Before Audi became an iconic luxury brand, they became well known in motorsport. In the early 1980s, Audi Sport (Audi’s racing division) took the racing categories by storm from their award-winning Quatro All-Wheel-Drive. Much like Mercedes and BMW, Audi has its own performance sub-brand called RS (Rennsport). RS models are equipped with carbon fiber integrated throughout the car for lightweight handling, bigger breaks for faster-stopping power, and a tuned engine to get peak horsepower and torque.
