The first post-war Audi was created in 1965 with a 4-stroke engine developed for military use by DKW F102 and Mercedes, which Auto Union brought into series production. Auto Union Audi appeared to the public at the 1965 International Motor Show, originally under the simple model name "Audi". As a result of the expansion of the models, different models were named according to their engine power: Audi 60, Audi 72, Audi 75, Audi 80 and Audi Super 90. The Audi 60 was introduced in 1968 and quickly became a large-scale model. By 1972, nearly 220 000 units had been built. The layout of the Audi 60 engine paved the way for many subsequent Audi models.
