Beschreibung

Unveiled at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, the Audi Quattro introduced the company's now
legendary four-wheel drive system. The innovative system made the car the world's first
production turbocharged front-enigned 4WD production car. The code named EA 262, the
Quattro project started in 1977, led by Jörg Bensinger and Ferdinand Piëch, both of whom
wanted to showcase 4wd technology in a completely new car. To demonstrate the potential of
this new vehicle, they decided to produce at least 400 examples in order to homologate the car
to compete in the World Rally Championship. In 1981, Michèle Mouton became the first female
driver to win a World Championship rally, driving an Audi Quattro and demonstrating that this
technology would be the future of the sport. The Quattro was continuously developed for
competition purposes, becoming increasingly explosive under Group B's famously loose
regulations. This work paid off, with a stunning World Rally Championship title in 1984, setting
the template for all subsequent championship winning rally cars.
The homologated road cars were expensive and exciting "race cars for the road." The first
series of road cars arrived on the European market at the end of the 1980, fitted with a
turbocharged, intercooled inline-5 developing 200hp. The car was offered in the North American
market for model years 1983 to 1986, during which period just 664 cars were sold. Global
production lasted until 1991, with a total of 11,400 units sold.

This particular car has been delivered from new by Nora Auto of Livigno (Italy), in May 1983.
The first owner kept the car for more than 3 years when he decided to sold it. The actual owner
decided to make some restoration works. The engine, being sitting for many years, has been
completely restored, while the interior of the car, in Green/Brown leather is still original. Both the
purchase invoice, Manual and Maintenance Book are available. Ready to be used, with its
stunning performances, this Audi is a a beautiful witness from the golden year of Rallying.
