The Audi 100, Audi 200, (and sometimes called Audi 5000 in North America), are primarily four-door, front-engine, front- or all-wheel drive full-size/executive cars, manufactured and marketed by the Audi division of the Volkswagen Group for model years 1968 through 1994 — across four generations (C1–C4), with a two-door model available in the first and second generation (C1-C2), and a five-door model available in the last three generations (C2–C4), evolving from a liftback design, similar to Volkswagens contemporaneous Passat on the C2, to a more conventional stationwagon on the C4.

In 1982, the third generation Audi 100/5000’s aerodynamic design achieved a remarkably low drag coefficient of just 0.30 for its time,[citation needed] featuring completely flush greenhouse sides, including unique new sliding window mountings.

The C2 and C3 models of the Audi 100 were marketed in North America as the Audi 5000 from 1984 to 1988, and in South Africa as the Audi 500.

In 1994, the models were mildly restyled, and renamed the Audi A6 series in conjunction with a general new Audi naming scheme, until they were relieved by a new generation of A6, internally code-named C5, in 1997.
