Audi 100 GL 5D, 1978

Produced from 1976, the second generation Audi 100 was a perfect example of the angular design school of this period. The new model was available as a 2-door or 4-door saloon, and from 1977 also as a 5-door hatchback with the designation Avant. The first diesel engine with the sign of the four rings was presented in a blue tone typical for the period. Even before it was launched, test engineers had driven the car around the world. The global traveller arrived back in Germany exactly on time for the presentation of the new model in Öhringen.
