Audi logo

While the four rings of Audi may appear to be one short of an Olympic bid, it is a historic symbol dating to 1932 conjoining four German automakers into Auto Union, which is “the roots of what is today Audi AG,” according to Audi’s historical website. Audi freshened the logo in 2009 by making it more three-dimensional and chrome.

The Audi Sport sits on display at the Chicago Auto Show Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018, in Chicago.
