Auggie Cahnay was a world-famous race car driver tragically killed in a racing accident. He'd won every major race in the world- except the International Grand Prix. Koji Onishi was a huge fan of Auggie.
Auggie spent so much time in his Formula 1 racer, he bragged the car was almost part of him. After his death, the car was put on display in an automotive museum along with some of his winning gear.
Skid-Z thought it was a shame such a nice car was going to waste as a display piece, and scanned it to use as his Earth vehicle.
Auggie's Formula-1 racer had a gold Autobot symbol on it for some reason.
- Auggie's Japanese name, Goldback, was seemingly an inexplicable reference to Goldbug's Japanese name.
