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.
When it was launched, the Audi 80 was hailed as the "new performance class". The LS version of the middle class model had a power output of 75 or 85 hp.
