The striking Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles pavilion is in the South-East of the park.
Audi: "Vorsprung durch Technik" ( advancement through technology). Audi is not only synonymous with an advanced state-of-the art technology but also with individual mobility. The architecture of the Audi Pavilion therefore focuses on the brand values’ design and dynamism.

Porsche AG and the Autostadt, Henn Architekten (architecture), HG Merz Architekten (presentation) and WES & Partner landscape architects.

It is situated, nestling like a jewel, in the curve of a little hill between the ZeitHaus museum and the five-star-superior hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg. The pavilion’s shape is inspired by part of the race track at Le Mans. In the 20s and 30s this famous circuit saw the motor-sport legend Bentley rise to fame.
