A restored Audi Type M has been handed over to Audi Tradition yesterday. Audi really has a great collection of vintage cars and this is truly another fantastic example. Best thing is that it comes as a cutaway model and it was the first ever 6-cylinder by Audi.
The heritage department of AUDI AG has an appointment of particular note today: Audi Tradition is taking receipt of a fully restored Audi 18/70 hp Type M, dating from 1925, from the vehicle restoration specialists at Fahrzeugrestaurierung Rosenow, based in Glienick near Berlin – in the form of a cutaway model. “It was very important to us to be able to realise this project. After all, the cutaway model gives people a very revealing insight into the technology, the composition of the materials, the craftsmanship and the engineering expertise of its time,” remarked Thomas Frank, Head of Audi Tradition. The conscious decision was taken to commission the preparation of a cutaway model from a very valuable and rare original vehicle.
Frank is thrilled by the results: “This represents the pinnacle of automotive craftsmanship – every single detail, however tiny, is visible! The Audi Type M is a real eye-catching exhibit that will be positioned at a prominent point at the Audi museum mobile.” Audi Tradition is consequently allowing itself a rare luxury, because it is rare for cutaway models of such remarkable cars to be commissioned today.
