For over 100 years Audi has been at the forefront when it comes to developing innovative technology. Never content to rest on our laurels with one success, our research and development team continues to work tirelessly to find new ways to make every Audi we build better than those that have come before. No matter what challenge has been put before us, we have always triumphed. They told us we couldn’t go faster, so we set out to build cars that were not only faster but also more fuel efficient.

Going all the way back to “The Jetsons,” science fiction writers have always been under the impression that cars of the future would fly. While there certainly is an argument that the best way to avoid all the traffic congestion we have in our major cities is to stick half of those vehicles into the sky, the reality is quite different.
