30 years of quattro® means 30 years of Vorsprung durch Technik. From the legendary "Ur-quattro" and countless motorsport successes through to the latest generations such as quattro with crowngear centre differential and torque vectoring and with sport differential: quattro permanent fourwheel drive is a born winner – and is systematically continuing its ongoing success story.
The name quattro signifies more driving pleasure along with enhanced traction. A sales argument that has convinced thousands upon thousands of drivers all over the world. From 1980 up until 2013, Audi produced around 5 million cars equipped with quattro drive. Within the current model range quattro technology is featured broadly. This makes Audi the world's most successful premium manufacturer of cars with permanent four-wheel drive.
In 2010, readers of "Auto Bild allrad"* voted two Audi models the "all-wheel drive car of the year": the Audi A4 quattro and the Audi A8 quattro. This was the fifth time in succession that the prestigious award went to Audi. A vote that clearly proves one thing: quattro technology today is stronger and more innovative than ever before.
