Another trophy for the multiple winner: the Audi A6 has won Europe's "Auto1"
2005 title. In winning this award, Audi's executive saloon clearly
outdistanced its nine competitors remaining in the final. Prof. Dr. Martin
Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, took receipt of
the award while attending the Geneva Motor Show. Following numerous national
trophies and victory in the "World Car of the Year" award, this is the
latest stage in the success story of the new Audi A6, which was only
launched in 2004.

The annual competition to find the winner of the "Auto1" title is held by
the German trade magazine "Autobild" and its sister publications in a total
of 21 European countries. In the first round, it was the readers' turn to
vote in national qualifying contests: the Audi A6 was the winner in five
countries, including Germany, Europe's biggest car market. The overall
result for all European reader votes was also dominated by the A6, clearly
ahead of its rivals.

In the final round, the top ten competitors faced a 35-strong jury of
experts. Engineers, racing drivers and motor journalists subjected the
candidates to an extensive and challenging test on a proving ground in
Vizzola, Italy. The new Audi A6 impressed the jury members in equal measure
with its dynamic performance, comfort, luxury equipment and excellent
spaciousness.
