    1. Audi

      Audi's beginnings date back to the late 1800s. The name Audi is based on a latin translation of the last name of the founder August 'Horch', itself the German word for 'listen!'. Audi AG has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 1964. VW relaunched the Audi name when it was acquired as part of VWs purchase of the Auto Union and NSU Motorenwerke AG assets.

    4. Maybach

      Founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and son, Maybach-Motorenbau GmbH used a Mercedes chassis for their cars in 1919. Maybach was the designer of the first Daimler branded 'Mercedes' in 1901. In 2002 Daimler resurrected its subsidiary as an ultra luxury brand to compete with established brands, Rolls-Royce and Bentley. In December 2012 the last resurrected Maybach rolled out of production, ending Daimler's costly 10 year run with only 3,000 cars sold worldwide.
