Introducing Audi. (Mar, 1970)
Did 800 numbers not work in Iowa?
The revolutionary new car from Germany that moves, stops, turns, etc., differently from every car on the opposite page.
Almost every car in the world moves by means of the rear wheels pushing it.
The Audi moves by means of the front wheels pulling it.
Most cars’ front brakes (whether they be drum or disc) are located on the outside of the axle just inside the wheel hubs.
The Audi’s front brakes (which are disc, by the way) are located towards the middle of the axle.
Most cars turn by means of a series of gears and levers.
The Audi turns by means of gears alone.
Most cars also do other major things the same way.
While the Audi does most of them another way.
What it all adds up to is this: The advanced automotive principles that German engineers used in designing this car make it perform like nothing you’ve ever driven before.
And we’re not talking about subtleties. But differences that will be apparent to you the moment you drive the Audi out of the showroom.
Which is what we’d like to invite you to do right now: drive an Audi out of the showroom and around the block a few times. (You can find out where your nearest Porsche-Audi dealer is by calling 800-553-9550 free. Or, in Iowa, call 319-242-1867 collect.)
It’s quite an experience.
