Audi TT Production
Györ, the Hungarian city on the Danube, is an ideal location for the manufacturing of high-tech engines and cars. Its merits lie not merely in the high availability of skilled workers and highly qualified university graduates.
AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft., a fully owned subsidiary of AUDI AG, builds over 1.9 million engines there each year, and assembles the Audi TT model range and the A3 Cabriolet, among other vehicles, in tandem with the Ingolstadt plant. Audi Hungaria is the principal engine supplier of the Audi and Volkswagen Groups, one of Hungary's highest revenue enterprises and also one of the country's biggest exporters.
ENGINE MANUFACTURING - Engine production (pre-series) started as long ago as the end of 1993. The engine production plant in Györ, Hungary, was inaugurated in October 1994. With this move, Audi not only safeguarded its international competitiveness, it also created a strategic base in Hungary that is gaining increasingly in importance. Györ now produces almost the entire range of Audi engines. Some 400 different versions of basic engines are built there: four, six, eight, ten and twelve-cylinder engines featuring both TDITDISynonymous with muscular torque delivery and outstanding efficiency: TDI. Today, TDI engines are sporty, smooth and economical.TDI and FSIFSIGetting more out of every drop of petrol.FSI technology. The ten millionth engine was completed there in June 2005. Volume production of the new four-cylinder common rail engines started in October 2007.
VEHICLE ASSEMBLY - Assembly of the Audi TT models at Györ commenced in April 1998. The first second-generation Audi TT Coupé left the Audi Hungaria production line in April 2006, and was followed by the first TT Roadster of the same generation in that November. The bodyshells, which have already been painted in Germany, are brought by train from Ingolstadt to Györ, where they are delivered to the assembly hall. By the end of 2007, 382,445 Audi TT Coupé and TT Roadster cars as well as 216 of the new Audi A3 Cabriolet had been assembled in partnership with the Ingolstadt plant. Audi has systematically realised a new, process-oriented production concept at the plant -- with short distances and fast, direct flows, from the delivery of parts to the transportation of the assembled cars.
2012 BMW 650i Convertible Production Line
http://www.eurocarnews.com - BMW Group USA - The new BMW 650i Convertible is built at the BMW plant in Dingolfing, Germany. Also rolling off the assembly line at the BMW Group's largest production plant are the BMW 7 Series and BMW 5 Series models. The flexible and efficient processes at the plant combine state-of-the-art production technology with a standard of quality defined by meticulous craftsmanship in the manufacture of premium cars configured to customer requirements.
Audi Supercharger Technology
Alongside Exhaust gas turbochargers, Audi also makes use of Superchargers to Boost its engines. A Supercharger is used in the 3.0 TFSI. The high-efficiency mechanical charger is situated in the 90-degree V formed by the cylinder banks and is driven by the engine via a poly-V belt. The gas pathways downstream of the charger are very short, thus the torque develops quickly and easily. The full Boost is available even at idle.
Common rail injection system
The injection technology used in the TGL and TGM is the most sophisticated one: a state-of-the-art common rail injection system with vertically positioned 7-jet injector nozzle. The latest generation of EDC7 control units provide the controls of the system. Only this system ensures the best-possible control of the fuel injection process. In each compression stroke, the injection quantity can be divided into pre-injection (1) and main injection (2). In some cases, a post-injection (3) is used. The engines operate with an increased maximum injection pressure of more than 1,800 bar in order to reduce the soot particles inside the engine. The engine runs extremely quietly and noise emissions are low due to the pre-injection (1). The common rail system also supplies considerable advantages in torque, particularly at low speeds. At all engine ratings, the favourable progression of torque across a wide range of engine speeds makes driving economical and requires very few gear shifts.
Worlds fastest Audi? Audi R5 20v A5
A5 dragster with 20v 2.5l engine, and it seems they not at full Boost yet as they making 1.2 60ft and low 8's (almost 7) with only ~2bar (29psi) Boost... I'm pretty sure the engine is build for 3bar+
Audi dual clutch transmission technology
The S tronic dual-clutch transmission is a successful technology. It combines the convenience of an automatic with the efficiency of a manual transmission, while adding its own dynamic touch. Throughout much of the model line-up -- from the A1 to the A7 Sportback -- the S tronic is available in four different versions, with six or seven gears.
