It has been placed on the Audi roundabout in Ingolstadt, and was formally presented to the town's mayor, Dr Alfred Lehmann.

Audi's centenary celebrations kick off at a major ceremony featuring German chancellor Angela Merkel at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on Thursday.

On Friday the 'Audi Rocks 100' party is being headlined by the band Die Fantastischen Vier.

Then on Saturday Audi's racing history will be celebrated as several successful cars from its history lap the historic Donauring circuit.

Finally, on Sunday the Czech Philharmonic Choir and the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Beethoven's Ninth Symphony at a free concert.
