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.
As the Audi 80 L, the basic model appeared visually rather meagre, but that did not mean that it was any less safe to drive than its more powerful siblings. 55 hp were enough for the basic version to advance quickly.
