The Audi Type M started production in 1925. The vehicle had a six-cylinder in-line engine with 4.7 litres of displacement. It developed 70 PS (51 kW; 69 hp) over a four-speed transmission which drove to the rear wheels. The engine had an eight-bearing crankshaft, forced lubrication with oil cooler and a thermostat-controlled water cooling. The car had two leaf-sprung solid axles and four wheel hydraulic brakes. It was the first Audi with four-wheel brakes. The expensive car brought Audi to very close bankruptcy. 228 copies were produced, plus two prototypes.
