At Beetle Spa Ltd., we service and repair all cars, foreign and domestic. We can handle pretty much every make and model, but we’re partial to Audis and Volkswagens. You won’t find many vehicle repair shops who know more about those two German brands than we do. We thought you might enjoy it if we shared a little of our knowledge and enthusiasm for Audi and Volkswagen with you. After reading these pages, be sure to give Beetle Spa Ltd. a call. We’ll talk German cars with you, or we’ll discuss yours in particular. We’d love to become your one-stop shop for vehicle repair and maintenance.

Luxury cars Although he retained a spot on the Audi board, Horch left Audi in 1920 for another job. Horch watched as, by 1929, Audi cars became high-end automobiles with specialized body work. Audi merged in 1932 with three other companies – Horch, DKW and Wanderer — to become Auto Union.  Bavaria to the rescue With the end of World War II, however, came the liquidation of the Auto Union. But with Bavarian funding, a new Auto Union facility opened in Ingolstadt in 1949. A decade later, funds materialized for the building of a mass-production facility on that site. Daimler-Benz took over the Auto Union in 1959 but sold the company.
The history of Audi  Audi is the high-end vehicle in the Volkswagen Group and has been wholly owned by Volkswagen since 1966. Audi actually came into being in 1899, when August Horch established the company in his own name. Two companies and a copyright infringement suit later, Horch could no longer use the “Horch” moniker.  The four rings The Audi name actually comes from the founder. “Horch” means “listen” in German; the Latin word for “listen” is “audi.” Four German car companies – Audi included — merged into one entity around 1910. In fact, that’s how the company emblem emerged: each of the four inter-connected rings stands for one of those original independent companies – DKW, Horch (Horch’s former company) and Wanderer, in addition to Audi.
Audi comes back Volkswagen acquired a 50% holding in Auto Union in 1964 and began producing Volkswagen Beetles at the Ingolstadt site, although they discontinued the DKW brand because buyers had become dissatisfied with its two-stroke engine technology. Later re-fitted with a four-stroke engine, the new car was marketed as “the Audi.” Performance cars Volkswagen unveiled Audi as its own brand in the U.S. in 1970. Through a series of triumphs, Audi came to be considered a technology-forward company focusing on performance cars. At that time, Audi began to compete in the luxury car market against such giants as Mercedes-Benz and BMW. As of late 2009, Audi is the biggest contributor to Volkswagen Group’s overall profits.
