In August 1928, Jorgen Rasmussen, the owner of Dampf-Kraft-Wagen (DKW), acquired the majority of shares in Audiwerke AG. In the same year, Rasmussen bought the remains of the US automobile manufacture, Rickenbacker. These engines were used in the models of Audi Zwickau and Audi Dresden models that were launched in 1929.
In 1932, Audi combined with Horch, DKW and Wanderer to make auto union,AG. Before World War 2, Auto Union used the four interlocked rings that make up the Audi badge today, representing these four brands. However, this badge was used only on Auto Union racing cars in that period while the member companies used their own names and emblems.

On 17 august 1948, the Auto Union AG of Chemnitz was deleted from the commercial register. With no prospect of continuing in soviet controlled-East Germany , the company transferred there manufacturing to the West-Germany.

But while demand for two-stroke engines has dropped rapidly and Auto Union was not ready to let it go. But that doesn’t stop production until 1965, a year after the Volkswagen took over. However, Diamler dis some crucial work before Volkswagen could take care of their problem in its quest to resurrect Audi. Kraus knew all there was to know about engines, and his team at Ingolstadt soon came with a four-cylinder known as the M118 Mexico.
