As my earlier post mentions, the engine was a licensed Mercedes design, which
Audi later came to own.  You are right in it being used in the 924 and the
Volkswagen TL line of trucks.  Audi also sold short blocks to AMC and I
believe they sold them the entire engine production line when the 827 family
of engines began to be used throughout the corporation.
