Audi highlights at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed ended on Sunday and now Audi is looking back at this year’s event through a video showcasing the most important moments. At the event hosted in West Sussex there were many Audi models from several periods, starting with the Type C “Alpine Victor” produced back in 1914. With this very same open-top touring car Audi managed to triumph in 1914 at the International Austrian Alpine Trial. It had a 3.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine delivering 35 bhp at 1,800 rpm which enabled a 90 km/h top speed.

Another important model that was showcased at Goodwood FoS was the 1936 Auto Union Type C that won many races in Europe with Bernd Rosemeyer behind the wheel. In 1937, the car powered by a massive 16-cylinder engine outputting 520 bhp took first place at Donington Park.

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed there were also recent Audi products such as the RS Q3, A6 Allroad, A7 Sportback and the A8L W12. Other models also showcased include the TTS, Q7, RS6 Avant and the R8 LMX which came equipped with laser headlights.
