30 years of quattro® means 30 years of Vorsprung durch Technik. From the legendary “Ur-quattro” and countless motorsport successes through to the latest generations such as quattro with crowngear centre differential and torque vectoring and with sport differential: quattro permanent fourwheel drive is a born winner – and is systematically continuing its ongoing success story.
The name quattro signifies more driving pleasure along with enhanced traction. A sales argument that has convinced thousands upon thousands of drivers all over the world. From 1980 up until the end of 2009, Audi produced around 3.3 million cars equipped with quattro drive. More than 120 quattro versions feature in the current model range. This makes Audi the world’s most successful premium manufacturer of cars with permanent four-wheel drive.
In 2010, readers of “Auto Bild allrad”* voted two Audi models the “all-wheel drive car of the year”: the Audi A4 quattro and the Audi A8 quattro. This was the fi fth time in succession that the prestigious award went to Audi. A vote that clearly proves one thing: quattro technology today is stronger and more innovative than ever before.
