It's called the "Audi Advantage", and it covers most used cars
sold by dealers. It is for cars less than a certain age (7 years?),
and they must pass an inspection first.

My '89 100Q bought in '93 came with a 12/12K warranty, with 24/24K
on the drivetrain. Angela's '90 90Q bought in '94 came with 12/12K
on everything. They sort-of cost you; it's either explicitly priced,
or implicitly added into the selling price.
