When the 2000 Audi Rosemeyer Concept car made its introduction, the public saw it as a vehicle that was all muscle and power. It seemed low slung but had big wheels and room for a 12 or 16 cylinder engine located in the space ahead of the rear wheels. It certainly could gain attention and raise emotion but Audi did not deem it as suitable for mass production.

The car appeared to have the design of the traditional racing car of the 1930's. Power could be applied to all four wheels giving the aluminum body the necessary thrust for a speedy highway performer. The car was named after Bernd Rosemeyer, a Audi race car driver. He was considered one of the finest German drivers in his time, and died at age 28 in a world record attempt when his Auto Union Streamliner rolled over several times at some 440 km/h on the Frankfurt to Darmstadt autobahn.
