Audi quattro, 1980

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. Outstanding traction due to permanent four-wheel drive and two manually locking differentials predestined the Audi quattro for use on slippery surfaces.
