Audi 80 L, 1974


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. Business with authorities was a major domain of Audi's for decades. Large numbers of Audi 80 vehicles were produced for the police – most of them with basic engine versions. The best known user was Police Commissioner Haferkamp in the German TV series "Tatort".
