The Audi 920 was a car introduced in 1938 by the Audi division of Auto Union to replace the Audi Front UW 225 and Horch 830 sedans. Its engine was a shortened version of the eight-cylinder in-line engine used by sister company Horch. The car was planned to occupy a niche in the Auto Union range between the large Horch products and the middle market cars produced by Wanderer. Audi had no stand-alone production facilities at that time and the car was produced, like its predecessor, at the Horch plant.

The 920 featured a front-mounted six-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 3,281 cc.[2] A maximum output of 75 PS (55 kW; 74 hp) at 3,000 rpm was claimed along with a maximum speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).[1] A floor-mounted lever controlled the four-speed gearbox: this delivered power to the rear wheels, which represented a technological retreat from the innovative front-wheel drive configuration of the 920’s predecessor.[3] The box-section chassis featured semi-independent suspension at the front and a swing-axle arrangement at the rear.

Production of almost all passenger cars came to an end in Germany as European war intensified. By the time production of the last pre-war Audi came to an end in 1940, 1,281 of the cars had been produced.[2]

It was the last car to carry the Audi name until the Audi F103 in 1965, which marked the resurrection of the brand by Volkswagen shortly after its takeover of Auto Union the previous year.

Due to the war taking place, Auto Union could not create a successor to the vehicle. After the war ended, some Auton Union factories were located in East Germany, which became a part of the Eastern Bloc, which made Auton Union unable to create a replacement, however, using the assets for the creation of the Audi 920, HQM Sachsenring GmbH created the similarly sized Horch P240 limousine.
