During the early 1980s Audi were responsible for creating a 4WD revolution in the rally world, winning both the Manufacturers’ Championship in 1982 and 1984 and the Driver’s Championships in 1983 and 1984. Introduced in 1980 the Audi Quattro brought 4WD onto the road. Based on the Coupé’s body shell with a different floor pan to accommodate the four wheel drive system and independent rear suspension, it was powered by a five-cylinder, 2.1 litre unit that was developed from the engine first found in the 200 saloon. Equipped with a KKK turbocharger, the engine produced around 200 bhp in road trim with competition trim engines off the Richter Scale power wise. The cars were an instant success and have already become a classic at a relatively young age due to their quirky looks and competition pedigree.
