Audi 80 GTE, 1978

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. The facelifted version of the Audi 80 GTE could only be visually distinguished from the standard Audi 80 by the two-section front spoiler and by the side trim strip. The 1,600 cc engine with K-Jetronic generated 110 hp, good for a speed of 181 km/h!
