The Audi 80 was developed by Ludwig Kraus and was presented in 1972. It quickly became the bestseller in the lower middle class. With a facelift in September 1976, the style of the Audi 80 was aligned towards that of the Audi 100, which had just been launched.
The Audi 80 GT was launched in 1973. A double carburettor system and fine tuning boosted the engine output to 100 hp, good for a speed of 175 km/h! The optional sport package included matt black painted bonnet and alloy wheels.
