More and more modern car buyers are now demanding individuality, exclusiveness and sportiness.
Since October 1983, quattro GmbH has stood for an extra-special way of life under the banner of the four rings. With an attractive portfolio of high-performance vehicles, exclusive customisation options and useful lifestyle articles, quattro GmbH aims to meet virtually all the requirements of its customers.
The portfolio of products and services from quattro GmbH comprises three different business segments and offers an extensive range of high-tech products and lifestyle articles.
All Audi R8 and RS models have racing in their genes. Developed by quattro GmbH*, they have been inspired, developed and built using technology developed on the racetrack. The RS and R8 badge not only guarantees awe-inspiring performance, it also represents the very embodiment of “Vorsprung durch Technik”.
It is where we pioneer our newest and most advanced engineering and technology. And then combine it with the very highest level of refinement and everyday practicality to create fascinating allround sports cars.
R8 - built as the result of our greatest ideas
The Audi R8 - the high-performance sports car from Audi - applies motor racing expertise to road vehicles. The extraordinary design of the Audi R8 Coupé and the Audi R8 Spyder instantly grab the attention of onlookers. The Audi R8, developed and constructed by quattro GmbH, combines core Audi technologies to form one awe-inspiring concept.
- FSI® petrol direct injection
- Mid-engine cars with high-revving concept
- Permanent quattro® all-wheel drive
- Lightweight design due to the Audi Space Frame (ASF)
- Use of innovative materials such as carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP)
The Audi R8 is produced on the basis of high-quality craftsmanship. In the body shop and the assembly plant, extremely experienced quattro GmbH staff construct the vehicles primarily by hand. Due to the numerous equipment versions and customisation options they hardly ever produce a particular combination more than once.
RS models - breath-taking performance
Even at first glance it is obvious that the Audi RS vehicles, with their athletic, muscular design and the characteristic Audi RS design features, are the sporting highlights of the Audi brand. With their superior road performance and handling characteristics, the Audi RS models have been developed for customers who want to drive a high-performance sports car without having to forsake everyday suitability, an appropriate level of comfort and top quality. All Audi RS models are designed by quattro GmbH and developed in cooperation with AUDI AG.
Individualisation – Audi exclusive
Strong personalities require an outlet for expression. Special requirements call for tailor-made solutions. Audi exclusive customises your Audi exactly in accordance with your wishes. For example, you can choose a customised paint finish in virtually any colour you want. Audi exclusive upgrades the interior with various high-quality leathers. Numerous fine woods are also available as inlays. The high-quality Audi exclusive line equipment package is an excellent opportunity to enter into the world of vehicle customisation. The Office packages, developed especially for particular models, combine comfortable travel with efficient working conditions. And the design of various different alloy wheels from quattro GmbH enhances the dynamic appearance of your Audi even more.
Lifestyle Accessoires – Audi collection
A lot of car buyers expect their favourite brand to be more than “just” a car. With the quattro GmbH lifestyle articles, our customers can express their identification with Audi in areas over and above the extensive Audi model range and benefit from the expertise of the brand with the four rings in other product sectors as well. The Audi Lifestyle Articles are presented under the Audi Shop menu item - including online order option.
Initiated in 2009, the customer racing program has long since acquired a global dimension: as intended by Audi Sport customer racing from the outset, importer and customer teams from across the world now rely on the Audi R8 LMS – and with great success. And the success story continues: the Audi R8 LMS ultra with improvements in many areas is a comprehensively developed successor to the R8 LMS and has already been delivered to customers since February 2013. With the Audi R8 GRAND-AM a version is available for the North American GRAND-AM championship for the first time. Furthermore, in China a unique one-make Cup is held for the Audi R8 LMS.
Individuality, exclusiveness and the philosophy of quattro GmbH - together with the experience and skills gained over more than 20 years - are the key components of the extensive and high-quality range of products.
The quattro GmbH was founded in 1983 as a fully-owned subsidiary of AUDI AG. In 1985, the company began to market an exclusive portfolio of lifestyle articles.
