Audi quattro, 1981


The Audi quattro presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1980 represented a quantum leap in the repositioning of the Audi brand. The statement “Vorsprung durch Technik” was taken literally. The prominent wings of the Audi quattro make an important contribution to the bullish appearance of the coupé body. As a styling feature, they were imitated by a wide range of carmakers, both in Germany and abroad, over the following years.
