Audi plant in Hungary turns out 20 millionth engine

The 20 millionth engine has come off the production line at German carmaker Audi's base in Hungary, Audi Hungária Motor said on Friday.

The engine, a 2-litre, 4-cylinder, 170-horsepower Common Rail diesel, was built into a white TT Coupe for delivery to Belgium.

Audi Hungária Motor supervisory board chairman Frank Dreves said the plant in Gyor (NW Hungary) now makes almost the entire scope of Audi engines.

The plant produces 270 types of engines from the smallest 75HP four-cylinder to the biggest 570HP 12-cyclinder engine.

Audi announced in September a €900 million expansion at the base. The expansion is to raise output at the plant to 125,000 cars a year from 2013 and create 1,800 jobs. Audi Hungária Motor will get a HUF 11.2 billion investment grant from the state of Hungary to support the expansion.
