Following a Group-wide search for a suitable location in Central and Eastern Europe, AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. was chosen in 2005 as the site of the new toolmaking shop. As part of the investment of some €40 million, Audi Hungaria constructed a production hall covering an area of 18,000 square meters (193,750.39 sq ft). Equipment for the press shop and body shop is manufactured there. Highlights from a production technology viewpoint are the large presses with a maximum closing force of 25,000 kN (kilonewton) and a maximum tool weight of 50 metric tons.
As a manufacturer of body components for small-series vehicles, the toolmaking shop commenced production of body components for the pre-production series of the Audi RS 4, one of AUDI AG's top models, back in mid-2005. The Győr toolmaking shop also produced numerous body parts for the Audi R8 starting in 2006 and for the Audi RS 6 in small production runs in 2008. Parts for eleven parallel vehicle projects are currently produced here.
The toolmaking shop executes contracts on behalf of both the Audi Group and other brands of the VW Group. Over the past several years, small-run production has been expanded to include manufacture of several body parts for the Lamborghini Aventador. The toolmaking shop has also been responsible for production of body parts for the Audi RS 5 since 2010. In addition to body parts, the toolmakers also manufacture special groups of products made from stainless steel, which are then incorporated into five different Audi models.
In 2011, the toolmaking shop was enlarged by 28,000 square meters (301,389.49 sq ft), thus also expanding its capacity.
