Milestone in lightweight construction
The joint development with Audi AG in Neckarsulm was honored at the international die casting competition in Nuremberg. The special feature lies in the optimized design of the casting which led to a weight reduction of -19% compared to the functionally identical part of the predecessor model (Audi A8 D5). This was achieved with a high-strength, highly flowable alloy in combination with a strength-optimized T6 heat treatment. The thin-walled design also saves a significant amount of material, thus contributing to a sustainable value chain.
